At Common Roots Cafe, we serve hand-crafted food made with the best local and organic ingredients available. Our kitchen and bakery strive to create an innovative menu of seasonal offerings.

We are proud to be part of Minneapolis' vibrant local food movement. From the day we opened in 2007, we've categorized each purchase, averaging 50.2% local ingredients (within 250 miles of the cafe). This number goes up in the summer, but all year long we serve local meat, dairy, and flour.

We are located in the Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis. Parking is available in our lot just north of the building. The #4 and #113 buses stop in front of our building, and there is a Nice Ride station right across the street.


Comes from the French word délicatesse, meaning "delicious things (to eat)".


From Yiddish, a restaurant or delicatessen, especially for snacking.
