As "wine club" members of Inspire Moore Winery right next door, we eat here quite often. Service is casual, and the dining areas are both casual and fun in this converted 1800s house, (Remember those porcelain/enamel tables that your grandma had in her kitchen? This is where they ended up!) A simple menu full of fresh, local ingredients. Good local... More

Service was fast. The food was fantastic and extremely good. My fiancé and I both had the Roots burger and it was great. The wine selection is spot on.

We had to wait 10 mins before being seated. I appreciate the fact that some of their ingredients are locally sourced. The atmosphere felt like someone's pintrest page which was a bit of a turn off. The food was ok, but everything was overly seasoned and way to much sugar in everything. The food was a bit over priced for... More

Stopped in for lunch on one of the last nice days of the Fall. Gorgeous weather...perfect day to eat out on the porch. This place was a mixed bag with most of my comments leaning positive: Pro: The Food! Everything we ordered was delicious. I got a black bean sweet potato burger with fries and my husband a chicken salad... More

Cute place but not prepared for the amount of patrons wishing for lunch on a beautiful fall day. Understaffed would be an understatement. We waited an hour for a table. When finally seated there was no wItress in sight. Asked when we might order and they said someone would be right over. After another 15 minutes we gave up and... More

The restaurant is in an old, Victorian house. The decor is funky- old diner-type tables, lots of mirrors, old trunks, and saturated colors. We had to wait briefly for a table. The host ( owner) didn't really greet us other than to ask how many in our party.Our waitress, Desiree, was extremely sweet and attentive. The menu is VERY limited.... More

After looking at several restaurants in Naples, we decided to have lunch at Roots Café. I am not a chain food person and love the off beat, quirky places which Roots was. The hostess was charming, helpful and warned us ahead of time, it might be a little wait to get our food, but was able to seat us quickly.... More
