This place seems to have fair trade coffee and tea, but no vegan food options as far as I can tell. They had "savory" crepes the were vegetarian but not vegan. I went in there looking for lunch, but left without eating due to the lack of vegan food options and the apathetic waitstaff.

The Root Note is a relaxed coffeehouse atmosphere, home to the best homemade pizza in La Crosse, with food and drinks that are sustainable, often organic and really friendly to vegetarians and somewhat to vegans. This restaurant belongs to a certified sustainable forest.

Right now the desserts are not vegan and there are not a lot of vegan options. Though what they do offer is quite good.

And what is great is, The Root Note takes feedback and suggestions and is always offering new things. They plan to expand their vegan options more and more.

They also offer live music from local bands and others, and have the coffee house atmosphere with a good amount of space to enjoy.

I love being there and I feel good after I have eaten there. I feel that they care about my needs and health. The menu is flexible and the people are laid back and talented.
