#2 Scheckter’s RAW
When Tony Scheckter spent some time living in New York, he was shocked to discover just how creative and inventive the health food scene in the city was.
Upon returning to SA, he was both frustrated and disappointed to discover how limited many local eateries could be… So, he decided to created his own food cafe to counter that.
And oh, has the city been grateful he decided to do that… If you’re a health fanatic, vegan or simply someone who loves fresh, delicious and healthy foods, then you need to head to Scheckter’s RAW… now!
This Sea Point-situated eatery serves up wonderful gourmet health food – curated by Tony Scheckter himself – and a whole lot of restaurant charm besides.
