Located in a strip mall along with Jamba Juice, Baja Fresh and Vons supermarket.
Mainly a natural food store selling lots and lots of vegan dry goods as well as vitamins and supplements.
But if you look to your left as you walk into the newly remodeled store (due to fire last year), you'll see a cafeteria-style restaurant with a huge menu that will bring a smile to your face.
Not a 100% vegan, but vegan-friendly!
They do serve cow cheese, chicken, turkey, and eggs.
But mostly everything can be veganized.
They sell burritos, bowls, salads, wraps, smoothies, some raw items, juices, and specialty coffees.
We've eaten there a few times within the past month and ordered the same items every time:
TOSSED TACO SALAD-greens, avocado, cilantro, olives, jalapeno,black beans,brown rice,green onions, salsa, and tortilla chips with a creamy spicy dressing.
CUBAN BOWL-brown rice, black beans, baked plantains, vegan sour cream, salsa, and avocado
During one of our first visits while walking around the store, we stopped to talk to the owners and asked if they carried Oogavé - The Original Agave Soda, a soda we tried at VeggieGrill.
Takes like a flat Coke, but without all the crap.
They've never heard of it but offered to look into it.
They came thru and now it's available for the whole San Gabriel Valley to try.
The food here is fresh, healthy and made to order.
The only bad thing about Grassroots is their kitchen hours.
MONDAY thru FRIDAY- 10:00am - 4:00pm
So, we're hoping that they get busier, so the kitchen will stay open later and even open on Sundays.
