Long-awaited downtown cafe Sparkroot opened its doors this morning. It's located at 245 E. Congress St. and has an ultra-cool mezzanine dining area overlooking the street.
The cafe - which is owned by Ari Shapiro of local Xoom Juice fame - also has a vintage juke box, places to hang your bike and take a look at this menu. Shapiro has said the cafe is also the first place in the state to carry Blue Bottle Coffee, which has nearly a cult following in the Bay Area.
