A BREKKIE DATE WITH SCHECKTERS RAW
12 December 2016
From the very moment we walked in, we were treated like royalty and offered nearly EVERYTHING on the menu. Haha!!
(Psst…I literally wanted EVERYTHING…)
Trading as a Gourmet Health Food Cafe, serving raw, organic, vegan and vegetarian foods, Scheckter’s Raw is one restaurant to be added to your list of healthy foodie places to visit in Cape Town this summer.
After some extensive menu reading, we settled on three dishes to share between us all. Read more about these amazing dishes below…
HEARTY QUINOA PORRIDGE
Pictured above is their mind-blowing “HEARTY QUINOA PORRIDGE” (R60.00) which consists of quinoa, organic peanut butter, almond milk, coconut milk, organic raw honey and vanilla essence. This is a dish best served hot. They also cater for our Vegan friends, by replacing the honey with organic agave nectar.
Packed to the brim with protein (the good stuff!), this is one power breakfast for all fitness addicts! But seriously, there are literally mornings when I wake up craving this dish!!
Next up, the delicious death by Cacao granola jar!!! Officially termed the “RAW ORGANIC CACAO & ACTIVATED MESQUITE GRANOLA JAR” (R60.00), this bad boy consists of organic buckwheat granola, raw cacao, banana, almond milk, almond butter, raw organic honey, fresh fruit, organic chia seeds, coconut flakes, salted caramel. As above, this also comes in a Vegan friendly option.
Ok, when I say a may have died a little and gone to cocoa heaven, that is not an understatement. This is one dish that honestly looks as good as it tastes. And things can get pretty messy, so make sure you eat it with REAL friends who won’t judge you when you get all up in that jar!

Lastly, we were treated to their famous “ORGANIC MATCHA FLAPJACKS” (R80.00). These are packed with amazing goodness and contain organic matcha, vanilla, organic raw honey, organic hempseed, cinnamon, blend of flour (brown rice, chick peas, almond and flax seed) topped with strawberries, banana and whipped cream (made from coconut milk). This also comes in the vegan option as described above.
A fan favourite amongst many people who visit Scheckter’s Raw, these matcha flapjacks are MUST order when visiting this little slice of heaven.

And as if we hadn’t eaten enough, we were then treated to something sweet to end off our little brekkie date. Scheckter’s take on the Oreo cookie!!!
It was honestly one of the yummiest things I have ever tasted!!! They also do an amazing take on the traditional snickers bar which is just out of this world amazeballs!!! Scheckter’s Raw had this to say about their original sweet treats:
“We like to indulge guilt free. That’s why all cakes and treats are sugar
free, dairy free, gluten free, RAW and organic. Sweetened with Low Gi
organic coconut nectar. It’s always exceptional. We take our pleasure

Thank you so much the Toby and the Scheckter’s Raw team for an unforgettable breakfast. I will most certainly be back this season for organic goodness quick fix!
