This is one of our personal favorites for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They make & bake everything from scratch and support the community by purchasing ingredients from local farmers. The Root Cellar's eclectic menu offers many options for vegetarians, vegans, and non vegetarians. They also offer a large assortment of delicious bakery goods ranging from cookies and scones to key lime pie and chocolate cakes. And if that weren't enough, they sell many hard to find pastas, cake mixes, butters, chips, candies and even beer.

The Nasher is a wonderful museum to visit. The museum’s collection strategy emphasizes works by diverse artists who have been historically underrepresented, or even excluded, by mainstream arts institutions, and maintains a particular focus on artists of African descent. Other strengths in the collection include European medieval art, European and American paintings, Outsider art, classical antiquities, African art and ancient American art.
