The Roost

Thanks to Emily C. for sharing this vegan-friendly restaurant with the Yummy Plants community! Emily says, “Fantastic local & vegan options! The atmosphere is very rustic: drinks served in ball jars, mix-matched metal and wooden chairs, wooden tabletops, and glass bottle light fixtures. The drink selection is fantastic, serving an extensive list of teas, unique coffee concoctions, smoothies, and local beers, wine, and mead! And the best part of the drink menu is that any item with dairy milk in the ingredients can be substituted for rice, soy, or almond milk at NO EXTRA CHARGE! Score! The food is fantastic! Lots of vegan and gluten free daily soup options, special salads, and extra yummy baked goods…”
