With more people than ever focusing on their health, a family-owned cafe is making a splash with its specialty treats loaded with nutrients.
There can be many challenges to making healthier decisions in your diet, including giving up desserts or other “fun” foods. Rooted Lakeland, a new cafe in South Lakeland, wants to give you some of those cheat foods back with a healthy twist.
Rooted Lakeland is a one-of-a-kind coffee shop that offers a menu full of items committed to personal wellness. The menu includes a multitude of items such as mini protein donuts that are only 30 calories each, protein waffles that come with a variety of toppings to fill you up and drink refreshers full of essential vitamins and minerals to keep your body healthy and energized. The vision behind the cafe is simple: a go-to spot with a variety of delicious, protein-based desserts and drinks that are sweet and savory.
Rooted Lakeland is a family-owned business run by Sheyla Marrero-Gonzalez and her husband George, along with their daughter Anshelle. The family recently moved from Miami to Lakeland and opened their first cafe here, with plans for a second location already in the works.
You can try some of Rooted Lakeland’s delicious offerings for yourself, Monday through Friday from 8-6 p.m. and Saturdays from 9-1 p.m.
