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.
