The menu is created fresh each day, 100% vegan. It’s a tiny restaurant, tucked into a courtyard area. The wrap we had was tasty and the kale, carrot, and cabbage salad was excellent. The plastic water cups were dirty on the outside, but kudos for the green effort of real dishes and silverware.

Jealous of Tempe.

I’m from Prescott, and sadly we have no place this. I wish we did. 100% vegan. I would eat here everyday. I’m here on Saturday at noon, almost no one is here. I hope this place gets enough local support to stay open a long time.

Everything is fresh! I have lentils and carrots. My other half had spinach and pasta. Huge portions. Delicious.

The rice pilaf and sweet onion alfredo tasted really good. I experimented with the peanut butter, banana, and greens smoothie. So pleased I did. This is a really down to earth and pleasant place to try out.

I can't say enough good things about Desert Roots. I love walking in and being greeted by friendly faces and offered samples of the delicious homemade vegan food. It's so hard to pick - so the samples really help! I usually get a half wrap and a side or two. During the summer, it's best to take the food to-go given the lack of A/C in the seating area. My only complaint about Desert Roots is the hours. It's hard to get to downtown Tempe for breakfast or lunch on a weekday. How about being open for at least 11:30 - 2 on Saturdays, please? Maybe once a month? Close on Mondays instead? Something that provides an option for people who don't live/work in Tempe?
