Kind Roots Cafe will be closing its Lexington doors soon…

In mid 2017, amidst our search for a downtown location, we were called to apply for a grant and a chance to be a part of a project that followed our original goals for the business.

Initially, we decided against it concluding the move would be too big, but what good in life comes easy? In the end the decision came down to wether we were going to spend a bunch of money to open up a small restuarant in Lexington (population 7000), or spend the same amount of money and open up two concepts in Blacksburg (population 40000 and climbing).

We are not blind to the fact that without our success in Lexington we would not have gotten the recognition that sparked this change. Gandhi told us “to be the change we want to see in this world” and Kind Roots will continue to become apart of the farm-to-table and slow-food movements as we join forces with the Old School Center.

AS OF NOW, Blacksburg opening not scheduled until April 2019. Construction delays could push this back further.
