Vegan café, wellness centre and occasional market-place.
Edinburgh’s embrace of all things plant-based shows no sign of slowing down. Newington’s Beetroot Sauvage does things with a twist though, with an upstairs studio space for yoga and other wellbeing classes so you can practice your downward dog before grabbing an oat milk latte. For less active types there’s still a full menu: all-day breakfasts, mains and desserts are all meat and dairy-free, and other dietary requirements are more than catered for. They make their own vegan cheeses, like mozzarella for toasted ciabatta sandwiches with pesto and tomatoes – it also features in a substantial mac and cheese. Cakes include raw bakes, and Steampunk coffee provide one vice at least. There’s plenty of outdoor seating and a Sunday market and Saturday evening dining sessions all provide lots of reasons to stop by.
