Healthy Roots Café
A vegan café that serves culturally-informed, locally sourced dishes with a healthy side of community!
Want a fresh bite to eat in a lively, hyper-local spot? This is the place for you. We serve a wide variety of in-season dishes influenced by Hispanic and Native American cultures. The menu shifts week-to-week but you can depend on something tasty, healthy, and unique!
COVID19 Update – Healthy Roots Café has gone mobile! You can find us at the Spaces of Opportunity Farmers Market on Saturday from 9am-1pm
About Healthy Roots Café
The Healthy Roots Café, or “HRC”, is a youth run, plant based restaurant operated by the Orchard in collaboration with the Roosevelt Elementary School District at Lassen School. Our interns, ages 9-17, work both the “front of the house” and “back of the house” under the guidance of a master vegan chef. All possess a valid Arizona Food Handlers card.
Do you want to help the Healthy Roots Café expand and give more Phoenix residents access to local food?
