South Side Roots offers a diversity of choices so that people can get what they need regardless of how much time they have available, what kind of food they want, or how much money they are looking to spend.


South Side Roots Cafe offers an authentic dining experience with fresh, home-cooked cuisine and a warm, inviting atmosphere where eaters are encouraged to interact with the space and with each other. Our menu is seasonal, meaning that we change the offerings depending on what is available from local growers throughout the year. Soups, salads, sandwiches, and flatbreads are all creatively made to be healthy and delicious using quality ingredients.

Menu items are pay-what-you-can so that good, nutritious food is affordable for ALL of our customers.
