Introducing Root Cafe


let thy delicious food be thy medicine

Root Café brings a fresh, locally sourced and delicious dimension to the new Root Whole Body in NW Portland.

It’s no secret that food is medicine: that what you feed your body has a huge impact on your overall health and happiness. So it was natural that the new Root Whole Body in NW Portland should feature a whole foods café and teaching kitchen.

The café at Root is a place to enjoy a healthy and delicious bowls and wraps, smoothies, fresh tonics and juices and medicinal tea.  All dishes can be prepared vegan, or you can add a protein, such as egg, goat’s chevre or local smoked salmon.  Many of the offerings are gluten-free, and there are even a variety of healthy sweet treats and grab-and-go items.

All feature fresh and locally-sourced ingredients, selected for highest-quality, nutrition and flavor. And these ingredients are thoughtfully combined to create complex and satisfying dishes, whether you’re dining in or grabbing something quick to go.

It’s a convenient place to stop before or after your next class or appointment at Root. Watch for information about healthy eating classes at the café as well. Our staff nutritionists plan to offer discussions and workshops in the new café space.

The café already has a couple of signature items:

Tea & 3 (small plates): 

Pair a pot of tea with three small sweet or savory dishes—great for sharing. Our extensive tea menu gives you many healthy and satisfying options to choose from




Japanese Breakfast Bowl:

A decidedly Portland bowl that draws from Asian-inspired flavors. With seaweed, pickled vegetables, soft-boiled egg and smoked salmon and served with a side of Mushroom Dashi soup.








And we offer a number of sweet treats, as well seasonal and daily specials. Stop by and enjoy a delicious smoothie, a comforting bowl or wrap, or Tea & 3. Hang out a while and discover how easy (and satisfying) it is to enjoy a healthy meal in a welcoming and comfortable place.
