At Common Roots, 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 conveniently located next to us on 26th Avenue.

We have two dog-friendly patios with amble outdoor seating, one on either side of the cafe. 

In 2018, with the help of Jason Rathe of Field Outdoor Spaces, Inc, Kristi Koziolek of Farm Girl Gardening, and Mike Bethke of Fulcrum Point Services, we updated our boulevard and patio area with a custom build bench, freshly poured sidewalks, and new plantings and trees. 

It was quite the transformation. Take a tour back 10 years to see how the space originally looked, courtesy of google maps.



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


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