At Common Roots Cafe, we serve good food made from scratch morning, noon and night. Our kitchen and bakery uses local and organic ingredients to create a changing menu of innovative offerings.

Since opening in 2007, we've been very proud to be part of Minneapolis' vibrant local food movement. We've categorized each purchase from the day we opened our doors, and on average our ingredients are 50.2% local (within 250 miles of the cafe). This number goes up in the summer growing season, but all year long we serve local meat, dairy, and flour. Read more on how we track our purchases.

We are located in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis at 2558 Lyndale Avenue South.  Parking is available in our lot just north of the building, but if you can, please walk, bike, or take the bus!  The #4 and #113 buses stop immediately in front of our building, and there is a Nice Ride station right across the street.
