What I Ordered
I ordered the Waffle Breakfast which consists of a scratch made sourdough waffle with a side of home fries and fresh fruit. The waffle was very light, which was refreshing, and full of flavor, yum. I also got to sample the Biscuits & Gravy, heavenly!
Root & Pecker is situated in an open space with a bit of a rustic feel. Bar seating and lots of tables are available as well as many picnic tables outdoors, both under roof and out in the Florida sunshine.
With a strong focus on local sourcing, this fast casual stop is one of the cleanest food stops in town. Escape the bustle near UF and enjoy the quiet in this lovely restaurant. They are only open for breakfast and lunch so don’t sleep in too late. Oh, and the food is yummy!
