Roots and Fruits has been a vegetarian café in Leeds for over 25 years! First set up and owned by James. 

We have had our, predominantly plant based, menu for a few years now. We have worked with the wonderful Laura Thomas PhD (www.laurathomasphd.co.uk) to make sure that the food we serve is keeping up with what vegetarians and vegans want!  We talked to customers to find out what they wanted; less cheese, fried food and more vegan meals.

We launched the menu for National Vegetarian week and had great reviews from regular customers and new faces. The menu specials now change weekly to ensure we always have fresh, locally sourced ingredients.

We pride ourselves on making nearly everything 'from scratch'. Our chefs are creative and produce exciting and hearty meals.

Our front of house staff are friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. Our coffee is wonderful too! It’s Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance and Organic and our delicious range of cakes are vegan making the perfect accompaniment.

For the food conscious on the go, all our food and drinks can be taken away. There’s also a tasty selection of vegan treats-marshmallows, pumpkin seed butter, locally made chocolate, you can take home and save for later.

Keeping it local we support local artists and let them display work in the café, it’s ever-changing and worth a peek in its own right.
