Opend by raw-food chef Carol anne Ru she in April of last year, Sweet Beat Café is plant­based, as op­posed to ve­gan .“We be­lieve that the term plant-based is more ac­ces­si­ble. Some­times peo­ple fear the word ve­gan and are afraid to try it out be­cause of cer­tain neg­a­tive con­no­ta­tions at­tached to it. But plant-based also re­flects what we do. The fact that we use honey in some of our bak­ing and recipes means we are not ac­tu­ally ve­gan. Our­menuis 90 per­cent ve­gan.” For lunch, I choose the Sweet Beat 3 in 1 (¤10.95). It’s a plate of their daily salad and a cup of their daily soup -to­day’ s is bu lg ar wheat with but­ter beans and but­ter nut squash, also the key in­gre­di­ent in the soup.

There isa doll op of chill ia nd co­rian­der hum mus, and a few slices of lightly pick led cu­cum­ber son top. The bread is toasted and topped with av­o­cado. In­stead of cof­fee, Iopt­fora gin­ger ke­fir (¤3.50) which has a del­i­cate fizz and just the right amount of spicy gin­ger­ness.
