Sweet Cherubim

Vegetarian in Commercial Drive

Many Drive restaurants offer vegetarian options but Sweet Cherubim goes the whole hog with a full-on vegan and veggie menu of hearty, well-priced comfort foods served at its red Formica tables. There's an Indian feel to much of the menu, with pakoras and chapati wraps proving justifiably popular. Go for the good-value thali combo to fuel up for the day.

The desserts are also worth dropping in for. Consider a mid-afternoon pit stop on the woodsy patio for a cheeky choc-dipped walnut hemp cookie or a not quite so cheeky raw hemp and blueberry smoothie. There's also a large health food store attached; the perfect place to stock up if you're in self-catering accommodation.
