Scheckter’s is among the few spots in Cape Town where vegans, health nuts and foodies alike can find fare to rave about. Sweet or savoury, the menu offers up insanely scrumptious items. From the raw organic cacao and activated mesquite granola jar brimming with chocolatey goodness and swirls of salted caramel, to the aptly named BVB (Best Vegan Burger) accompanied with smashed avocado, caramelised onions and a side of moreish sweet potato fries.
The 100% vegan menu offers up great variety, and food so tasty one needn’t be into alternative living to enjoy what’s on offer. The high-protein hearty peanut butter quinoa porridge is a firm favourite, as well as the outlandish matcha flapjacks topped with strawberries, banana and coconut milk whipped cream.
Fresh cold-pressed juices are available in a handful of thirst-quenching flavours. Give a boost to your system with the Black Magic, made with activated charcoal, apple, lemon and alkaline water, or invigorate the senses with the criminally crimson Beet Boxer, made with beetroot, aloe vera, cucumber, green apple and mint. The Snickers is heaven in all its nutty goodness, though really each smoothie is legendary and could serve as a small meal.
The waiters are friendly and go about their business with a certain amount of charming ease but, at peak times, preparation times and consistency can often be an issue.
A stripped-down look akin to a Balinese seaside shala – wooden details and succulents give the space a type of earthiness. The vibe can be a little raucous at times but, generally, the Jamaican beats and general perkiness of Scheckter's is quite fun and uplifting.
Be sure to give the (almost) guilt free raw organic treats a try. Those with a sweet tooth are bound to develop an healthy addiction!
