Scheckter’s Raw Gourmet is a health food-based coffee shop located in Sea Point. It’s a vegan friendly special, with everything on the menu being raw and organic. The vibe is natural and fresh with wooden surfaces covering every nouk and cranny in the store. As you enter, there’s a square bar-table in the middle of the shop, almost mirroring a vegan friendly sushi bar. Scattered around the room are tables suitable for between 2 and 6 people. It’s a super fun, bubbly vibe with staff ensuring you’re kept smiling and happy, showcasing the best of vegan culture.
Coffee and Juice:
The whole place may be vegan, but they make exceptions for coffee fanatics not used to almond or soy milk. And I’ve got to say, the coffee is damn divine too, especially considering their focus is on other things. If you’re not a caffeine addict, this place will be heaven for you. They’ve got plenty cold pressed juices and smoothies to replenish your body with nutrients.
This place is honestly how I’d imagine heaven to be. Natural, fresh and full of flavour. The food is no exception to that. For breakfast, they’ve got a power packed organic oat jar or hearty quinoa porridge, making you feel like a superhero. If you’re keen for something a bit more “American”, jump in for pumpkin pie flapjacks or maca waffles. Other things on the menu include super bowls, curry wraps, burgers and a range of tasty treats.
I’ve got to say, for the all the flack vegans get, this place showcases the true beauty of vegan culture. Super friendly, super fun and the best part is, it’s so damn good for your body. Pop into Scheckters for a healthy wholesome breakfast, lunch or drink. Scheckters is located at the end of Sea Point Main Road.
