Whether you're a college student looking to chat about philosophy over a pint, a foodie who likes to sample from the ever-evolving menu, or a writer on a deadline looking for good coffee and WiFi, you'll find what you need at Common Roots Café. While the business is hopping most days of the week, the lines move fast and the tables are plentiful. Edibles range from café treats like bagels and pastries (often there's a vegan option), to full-dining fare including soup, sandwiches, salads, and pastas. Added bonus: Tasty items are created using organic, local, and fair-trade ingredients. There's even an ever-shifting gluten-free menu. And while selections adapt as the season changes, happy hours stay the same. Daily from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and again from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. patrons can enjoy $4 tap pints, which include a variety of Surly, Summit, Crispin, and other varieties; a glass of wine for $5; and an appetizer for $6.
