Time Out says

At this eco-conscious eatery, as much as possible—charcuterie, beer, cheese—is local. Particularly local are the breads and baked goods, which are made in house. This fact should guide your navigation of the menu: The housemade brioche is reason enough to get a sandwich (such as the serviceable pulled pork), and the rich dough for the flatbreads makes that portion of the menu particularly compelling. (Things that don't involve bread at all are dicier: The fries in the classic poutine are pretty good, but the tinny mussels should be avoided.) Local Root keeps a bartender on duty and he's happy to ply you with alcohol. Even so, it's hard to shake the feeling you're in a coffee shop.
