This buzzing little vegan café serves up tasty, wholesome plant-based food that has even meat-eaters convinced.

Food
Topped with a melting ball of vegan ice cream, the pumpkin pie flapjacks exemplify the food at Scheckters: Though they look like a beloved morning treat, they’re spiked with some more nutritionally dense ingredients – and won’t leave you with a food hangover. And while the word ‘raw’ might be in the name might make Scheckter’s seem like an austere spot to eat, the notion of rawness is conceptual only – ‘clean eating’ might be a better moniker – if marginally less snappy.

If you can resist the beautiful flapjacks (there’s also a great matcha version), then the lunch menu is also demonstrably worth a try. The wonderfully nutty falafel balls with pink hummus make a great starter to share. Else progress directly to the magnificent ‘Best Vegan Burger’. Made with lentils, veggie protein, brown rice, oats and flax seed, Scheckter’s vegan patty is particularly flavourful and textured. Paired with smashed avo, caramelized onions, sweet potato fries and vegan aioli, it’s a magnificent thing, and looks the part too – with it’s black, charcoal-infused roll.

Also on offer: hot dogs, wraps, and a range of bowls, including a surprisingly tasty poke bowl with kimchi-infused short grain rice, smoky grilled tofu, sprouts, creamy avo, pickled ginger and smoked paprika.

Finish with a moreish ‘Twix bar’ – a clever recreation of the duo of chocolate covered sticks with a layer of dates in lieu of caramel that will almost trick your brain into thinking it’s having a chocolate bar. It’s one of several guilt-free, raw organic treats sweetened with low-gi organic coconut nectar and free from refined sugar, dairy, and gluten.

Drinks
The golden latte with turmeric is a wonderful discovery: sweet, gingery and warming. Else there’s well-made organic, Peruvian-sourced coffee, and juices freshly extracted with a hydraulic press. The organic smoothies are a meal in themselves; particularly the thick, nutty Kashew King with cashews, almonds, dates, banana, organic mesquite, pea protein, vanilla, Himalayan salt and crushed ice.

Service
Relaxed and efficient – though the flapjacks take a little longer to prepare.

Ambience
Raw wood paneling sets the scene for a wholesome experience. On the weekends, it’s often buzzing.

    Healthy, wholesome foodie options. Even if you're not vegan, The Trump Dog will change your life. Flavour packed vegan sausage on a charcoal bun served with relish and sweet potato fries - yes please! I was however, disappointed with their pumpkin flapjacks as they were very stodgy and not great at all. They also have a wide variety of freshly pressed juices and health shots - check it out.
    Beautiful and delicious healthy food. I can't get enough and have to try everything on the menu!
    The smoothie bowl was warm. When I asked them to blend more ice in the one waiter shrugged his shoulder, and refused to help. The one waiter didn't blend the smoothie with ice. He just put it in the freezer, and refused my request. If you're paying R86 for a smoothie bowl I think they should have taken my request into consideration. The waiter admitted he stuck his finger in my food to check the temperature which is unacceptable. Most of the waiters are friendly except for 2.
    Best pumpkin flapjacks. Everything there is actually amazing, even the guilt free chocolate candy bars !
    Best vegan food in Cape Town. Great combination of innovation, deliciousness and health while remaining cruelty-free. Even the coffee is excellent!
