where did this all start?

Founded by Colette Lowe, Rootbar is based in Cape Town, with our original store in Newlands and subsequent stores open in Claremont, Moullie Point, Steenberg, V&A Waterfront and more to come.

In the last few years the health food industry has exploded and doesn’t seem to be slowing down as more and more people make healthier lifestyle choices. Over the past couple of years, juicing and healthy smoothies have exploded in popularity, where juice bars look to be on track to become as popular as coffee chains. This trend is here to stay and we hope to be your favourite. Whether you come down to our store or let us come to you, grab a fresh juice, enjoy a range of healthy breakfasts or daily salads.

We work to showcase a progressive combination of nutritional products that promote health and wellness, all sourced from local purveyors. Our mission is to make the nutritional benefit of high quality health foods accessible to everyone, while offering a one-stop-shop to those looking to quickly grab something delicious and healthy on the go.


We work painstakingly to ensure that all of our produce, packaging and principles are sustainable at heart. We strive to deliver cooking and production processes that result in minimal waste and make recyclable, compostable or reusable decisions where ever possible.
