grassroots market & cafe in pasadena - reopening?

the salad thread got me thinking of grassroots in south pasadena, the little organic market & cafe in the minimall by the pizza hut. it was closed due to fire damage from a blaze a few shops down, but has it reopened in another location? they had the best super healthy food -vegan, organic, huge portions, and cheap! the house salad - baby greens, sprouts, garbanzos, avocado, beets, tomato, and protein with the tahini dressing - how i miss you!

    I miss Grassroots a lot too...especially since I hate going to the Whole Foods Arroyo for certain items that I would have found at Grassroots. So I just called their number to see if they opened a temporary store somewhere and their outgoing message said that they plan to have a grand opening late spring. I can't wait...I miss the cafe a lot.

      I'm so glad to hear they are reopening soon! I miss it, too. They have the best veggie burritos. Yum!

        Grassroots answering machine message states that they will reopen their new and improved business in August. 626-799-0156 . It will be worth the wait. The food is healthy, yummy and inexpensive. Fiesta bowl is my favorite.

            Update- It's December 17th and the store is open but not the cafe. They say another three weeks, hopefully. They're just waiting for the Health Department Inspection.
