New website! New coffee selections! New faces!

 Hello everyone. I hope you're all well and recovering post Sandy. What a crazy time it's been for so many. We will be periodically taking donations to help with the victims and I will keep you posted as to when and what items are needed. One of our staff members will be making a run to the Rockaways this Wed., Nov. 7th, around mid day if you have anything to bring in before then. They are in need of clothing, paper supplies, blankets, gloves, camping gear & face mask for cleaning out houses. NO FOOD IS NEEDED AT THE MOMENT. 

 Along with so many other businesses in Red Hook, our coffee roasters, Stumptown, had major damage to their building. They will be shipping from Portland during the rebuilding of their roastery. On a positive note we were able to make a connection with a wonderful local roaster, 40 Weight, who provided us last week during the transition period due to Sandy. We are happy to say that we will be continuing to carry their single origin blends for our drip along with our regular Stumptown House blend. This will provide you, the customer, more variety & flavors while continuing in the support of local business & community. Both Stumptown & 40 Weight will be available for retail.

This is just one of the many new things happening at Roots cafe. We have some wonderful new employees that are happy to serve you. We have a new art installation this month featuring the photography of local, Kristina Hill. We also have an amazing new website up designed by Lauren Gerstle. check it out at

  Finally, this Wed. we will be holding our monthly "ADULT" south slope sing a long. Come prepared to make request and sing along to your favorite tunes old & new led by the fabulous Chris Q. Murphy & friends. Its always a good time especially after a few drinks! As always our events are byob & wine. Music starts up at 7pm.
