This buzzing little vegan café serves up tasty, wholesome plant-based food that has even meat-eaters convinced.
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.
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.
Relaxed and efficient – though the flapjacks take a little longer to prepare.
