Winter is one time when everyone is looking for places for a warm lunch…right? We are no different but most of the places in Delhi demand a bomb to provide with such an ambience. Luck had it that a couple of team mates discovered this place called Roots-Café in the park in Sector 29, Gurgaon and we visited the same day.
You will find this café in the Rajiv Gandhi Renewable Energy Park, Leisure Valley. It is partly like a shack and partly open air under the shade of large trees. Very cute seating space and apt for winter afternoons and breakfast scenes.
The food is quite home style , totally vegetarian and value for money. They serve things such as Poha, Omelette sandwich, Pakode, upma, chai, filter coffee, shakes, palak patta chaat to name a few.
While the upma, pakode , palak patta chaat and rice kheer were good to taste and had a good quanity, the wai wai chat, poha , mushroom cutlet and brownie were average. Poha was bland, wai wai chaat was too spicy, mushroom cutlet lacked a strong taste of mushroom and brownie wasn’t gooey.
Mix sauce pasta was average and more tangy than a mix of creamy and tangy but the white sauce pasta was quite creamy and nice!
The shakes, chocolate shake and oreo shakes were decent for the price but could be thicker otherwise.
Overall, the experience deserves and above average rating from us J We will surely be back for the lovely outdoor seating and some dishes while some could be improved upon J
Value for money: 3.5/5
