The Root Cafe celebrates grand opening 

Long in development, The Root Cafe celebrated its grand opening Tuesday. The local foods-oriented cafe is located in the former home of Sweden Creme, at 1500 S. Main Street. The interior of the cafe can accommodate around 15. Outside there's seating for dozens more. The menu, available at therootcafe.com, includes burgers, homemade bratwurst, a Reuben, a curry chicken salad sandwich, a spicy vegetarian bahn mi and seasonal salads and soups. The cafe plans to be open 7 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on Saturday. The phone number is 414-0423.
