It is mediocre food, but one of the staff is nice. Location could be much better. Feels very trapped in the 90s. Certainly not somewhere we'll go out of our way to go to.

Well imagine my surprise on Friday when I stopped by for a pint at the London Brewing Co-operative and found pizza being made. There is usually a food truck and live music on Fridays, and this time The Root Cellar had some portable pizza ovens...More

Honestly all these reviews that give this place 4 or 5 stars were either really drunk going there or shouldn’t even be posting reviews. Worst customer service full of attitude and ignorance. Food was cold and un flavourable. I want to say more things but...More

One of those rare reviews where one would like the option to award a 'zero'. Online, it appeared to be a good choice, with favourable reviews here on Trip Advisor. So, we probably had an unusual experience but, it should be reported just the same....More

Loved the atmosphere and food and service was prompt and helpful. I've been a few times at both busy and slower times and my food always comes out quickly. Really enjoyed every thing so far.

The Root Cellar is an organic, farm to fork restaurant located in the Old East Village in London, Ontario. We serve a from-scratch seasonal menu of all organic foods focusing on locally grown produce. Lunch available daily 11am-5pm, dinner available daily 5-9pm, and brunch available Saturdays 9am-1pm. We believe that food is political, that the choices we make about food--what we choose to eat and who we choose to support by doing so--resonate throughout our community, our economy, and our planet. At the foundation of this project is a commitment to invigorating our local economy, discovering the plenitude of our local foodshed, supporting sustainable agricultural practices, and working cooperatively.
