Cape Town’s northern suburbs to gain new sustainable vegan-friendly eatery

A new fast-casual dining experience that combines healthy eating and gourmet grub is set to open its doors at Canal Walk with the aim to change the grab-and-go scene. Called Sweetbeet, the new eatery will open on 22 September just in time for the school holidays.

Sweetbeet, which will be located at Shop 54 by the Centre Court, aims to serve fresh food made from scratch with seasonal produce. There will also be a focus on being environmentally sustainable with the use of use paper straws, re-usable metal straws and biodegradable takeaway packaging. The team will also reward you with a discount for bringing your own cup when purchasing any hot drink – coffee by Deluxe Coffeeworks included.

On the food front, the eatery plans to cater to all dietary requirements, from dairy-free to vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free. Think dishes like smoothie bowls with Amazonia organic açai, frozen blueberries, filtered water and banana; all-day toasties with chunky cottage cheese, crushed avo, oak-smoked trout and crispy onions; and warm bowls with chilli beef mince, corn, white cheddar, guacamole, nacho chips and crème fraîche. For those with a sweet tooth, expect treats like the Wake and Cake: a gluten- and guilt-free honey cake with orange, almonds and yoghurt.

Sweetbeet is the brainchild of Pulp Kitchen owner Andrea Hamman, who is excited about what this new offering brings diners. “Not only is it an offering of sustainable eating, it is about bringing local flair in-store to international dishes and protecting our beautiful environment.”
