Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

After a few months' hiatus, popular Mill Avenue coffeehouse Three Roots is back in business, under new ownership (it didn't go co-op after all).

Besides a fresh coat of paint, new flooring, and other repairs, the bohemian spirit of the place remains the same. Even many of the same vegan and vegetarian dishes are being offered again, although the menu now also includes a few meat options (like a roast beef sandwich), and will continue to evolve as customers give their feedback.

Current business hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily; extended hours will begin with the start of the new semester at ASU. Three Roots is located at 1020 S. Mill Ave. For more info, call 480-966-4949.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
