Re: “Veggie breakfast at the Root: the good, bad and ugly

This is CLToro (the d was a typo) and I thought it was worth weighing in once more on the fateful breakfast encounter. I would like to wave the white flag and extend the olive branch to Cheree and to thank everyone out there who has taken the time to blog about this subject.
What I feel has sadly been lost amidst this lively debate is the one thing we can all agree on: The Root is a great place, serving incredible, fresh, local food with a creative flair not easily found in this town. How awesome to have this unique little restaurant in our backyard. I think we should just enjoy what they have to offer - really nice folks serving really good food.

I was very excited to learn that The Root was going to be serving breakfast, and having been there twice for breakfast in the past week, I can assure you they have not disappointed. Without going into great detail on the menu (hopefully Cheree will return to do that soon), The Root serves the best breakfast fare I have had in Little Rock. Period.

My fiend and i have sampled several of the egg dishes, all of them unique and fabulous. If anyone out there thinks that all eggs are created equal, you are sadly mistaken. We brought to the attention of Jack, the owner, how much we enjoyed the eggs. He took the time to talk to us about the process of how these eggs were raised (which I will not attempt to recount), explaining that this process is why and how the deep rich yolks and robust flavor were achieved. I’m telling you, he knows his stuff because the eggs are truly special. The same can be said for the sausage. I feel there is a possibility that the sausage may not get a fair shake in any upcoming reviews, so please allow me to give mine. It’s amazing. My “friend” was born and raised in Iowa and I can assure you he knows a thing or two about sausage. He said it was as good as he has ever had.

So, hopefully this puts an end to the vitriol and we can all agree on enjoying a delicious breakfast, lunch and, hopefully one day soon, dinner, at the Root!
