Rooted In Lanc

Wolf and Webb Realtors like to provide our clients personalized experiences where we not only work to help you sell or buy your home but also provide you ideas, suggestions and tips for the process and your time after. One way we provide tips is through our suggestions of things to do or ways to get involved in Lancaster County, this week we want to share with you more about a vegan restaurant in Lancaster.

Located at 223 West Walnut Street you will find a delicious eatery for vegans, and all people who love a good meal. Root is open Tuesday through Sunday providing patrons a space to eat, but also learn. Root works to provide a space that helps the environment in more ways than one. 

Root was opened in 2015 by a Lancaster resident who became a vegan. He has the knowledge of health and environmental benefits while creating this plant based space for patrons to enjoy! When you go to Roots you can see the restaurant and bar are a fun space perfect to hang out with friends or to try a new dish!  

Vegan means meals that do not use or try to stay away from non-human animals specifically while eating as well as in other ways like soaps, cleaning products and more. Vegans do not eat things like meats, fish, eggs but also do not eat products like dairy, honey and other products that are made from animals. Typically people that are vegans eat foods like vegetables, fruit, legumes, nuts, seeds, rice, breads and use dairy alternatives like oat milk, almond milk, plant-based butter and more. What is very cool about vegan food and meals is that you can create so many different types of dishes as well as desserts, pastries and treats!

The menu at Root is seasonal and locally sourced produce. This is a great way to support not only one business but multiple across Lancaster County…talk about Rooted in Lanc! Their menu changes each week as they work to use seasonal produce and locally sourced items. I suggest checking out their Instagram account to see the weekly menus as you look to try this spot for your next meal. Recently they had a delicious salad with quinoa berries, broccoli and sprouts in a vinaigrette. It was mouth watering! Another dish is an Italian wrap that is stuffed with artichokes, and other vegetables served with some delicious fries. The bar is always full of fun and delicious drinks from beer, wine and liquor. The variety is wonderful! Each week their menu has a large variety of options meeting everyone’s taste and needs. With the warm weather around the corner Root is a great restaurant and bar to try out and enjoy a seasonal meal with a refreshing cocktail! 

Root does so much to help our environment such as not having plastic straws, helping animals and reducing takeout waste. You do not show up to your table and see napkins or plastic ware on the table; this is only given to customers at the request of the diner. This is a way to help make a movement for the environment. The work they are doing is benefitting our local community and is a testament to many simple ways we can help. Their takeout system is creative. You can bring your own container to get your take-out meal or use one of their take-out boxes which are biodegradable and compostable, pretty cool! If you purchase a t-shirt from Root the money is donated to Raven Ridge Wildlife Center which is a rehabilitation center specifically for animals that are native to the state of Pennsylvania.

Currently due to Covid-19 Root is not accepting reservations because of the limited seating. That being said you can call for take-out or go to the restaurant and see if they have any open tables. 

If you get over to Root let me know what dish you get so we can try it next. If you are not a vegan but curious about what it means or what dishes would taste like why not give it a try? A popular trend right now is Meatless Mondays where people eat no meat for the whole day and eat plant-based, maybe you want to try this out and add Root to your takeout for the night! 

Whether you are new to being a vegan, want to support a company that is environmentally conscious or just want to try a new spot I suggest trying out Root! You will not be disappointed!

Diners, the place where we enjoy a nice meal, the perfect spot for a quick meet up with a friend, an easy space to enjoy a cup of coffee and a good book. There are so many great restaurants in Lancaster including diners! Let’s look at five diners within Lancaster County to try out~

The perfect place to gather with friends or family to enjoy a meal together. Their soups are prepared daily and the atmosphere is so inviting. The Knight and Day offers pick up and delivery too! Their menu is detailed with multiple options from their main menu to specifics- a breakfast menu, lunch specialties, dinner specialties, and the senior citizen menu. What is a definite must try are one of their many pancake flavors from classic plain or chocolate chip they also have cinnamon-apple, blueberry, oatmeal raisin and banana walnut.The cinnamon apple is topped with cinnamon, apples, granola and whipped cream…the perfect plate for a sweet fix! 

A fan favorite is DJ’s Taste of the 50’s. The restaurant is open Tuesday and Wednesday from 7 am – 2 pm and Thursday thru Saturday from 7 am to 7 pm. This spot truly takes you back to the 50’s from the decor to the family experience. It is no wonder they have been voted for one of the best spots in America by USA Today and voted the best burger in all of Pennsylvania. Located at 2410 Old Philadelphia Pike they are an owned and operated family business. This gem opened in 2008 and has been serving so many since currently you can dine in, call in, order online and do curbside pick-up. DJ’s has a breakfast, lunch/dinner and dessert menu but knowing they have been ranked for best burger you definitely should try one! They have over twenty burger options from your classic cheeseburger to some creative fun ones with things like onion rings, pineapple, turkey, mac and cheese or peanut butter! Whether you want to try a new burger spot in the county or have a new spot to meet up with friends and catch up over milkshakes, next time you are thinking about trying something new DJ’s should be added to your list.

Located at 1370 Manheim Pike is a diner that has been open since 1997, Lyndon Diner. Currently they are offering take out only seven days a week. Lyndon Diner is a family owned business Lyndon Quinn’s father owned a diner in Lancaster in 1961. Right now their menu is limited but patrons still have a variety of appetizers, soups, main dishes, breakfast foods and burger options to choose from. What is great about the Lyndon menus are they highlight crowd favorites as well as new items on the list. Looking for the green “New!” is a fun way to try a different meal such as their Jersey Boy Benedict with pork roll or Irish Benedict with corned beef hash…yum!!
