Common Roots is unusual in the Twin Cities in that it is one of a few locations around town that not only serves up the good coffee and pastries one would expect to find at an internet café, but offers tasty meals and good brew as well. Even better? When you're dining here, it's on organic, local, and fair-trade ingredients. This also means that the menu changes often throughout the seasons. But luckily the happy hour stays the same, daily from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. During those hours, you can sit with a book or a friend and enjoy $2 off pints, wine, and appetizers. Some evenings the place can get pretty crowded, so be prepared to meet your friendly neighbors.
