Time to ROOST!
Finally, the wait is over! The opening of ROOST happened today. We are so happy there is a new juice and raw food cafe in Portland!
Owners Kathleen Flanagan and Jeanette Richelson took extra care in creating a menu that is as original and inspired as it is healthy and delish. It was hard to choose from the lovely menu–I was toggling between the Arugulta, Green Lemonade and Red Russian…How can I choose??
It was easy for my four-year old to choose; He was quickly obsessed with the idea of a Banana Split Smoothie complete with cashew whipped cream and a cherry! (He asked for ten!) I finally choose and happily sipped a chilly Mojadito Pepino, which tastes exactly like a Mojito, the essential summer cocktail. I added in some fresh ginger Kombucha for an extra burst of nutrients.
While Roost has yet to start serving the food, (the imagine by the end of the week they will be ready) the drinks were plenty filling. They will also be open late with organic wine and Prosecco choices.
Looking ahead to the food, Van loves that his favorite snack, Ants on a Log made the menu and I am most excited to try the Nori Roll, which is made with almond-sun seed spread, seasonal organic marinated veggies with a side of Almond Buttah kale chips, made by your very own KIDS GONE RAW!
Yes, we are super grateful that we are contributing to this RAWKIN new adventure.
