Tempe's Three Roots Cafe Goes Co-Op

Over the seven years that Robin Bundy owned Three Roots Cafe on Mill Avenue (1020 S. Mill), the hip little indie coffee shop earned a loyal following among ASU students and neighborhood locals alike for its relaxing, bohemian vibe and its well-crafted coffee drinks.

How loyal, you ask?

Thanks to some dedicated Three Roots fans, the place may get a second life.

Not long ago, a sign on the window announced that the cafe was closed for renovations. That was replaced by a sign that the spot was about to be under new ownership. And now, Bundy says, the business may be revived by a group of customers who want to form a co-op to keep it running.

No word yet on when it will be open for business again. Stay tuned.
