Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast
Neighborhood: Soho
Description: Prepared with natural ingredients & lots of care, our concept is simple. We display ten hot dishes, which are inspired from around the globe, together with colourful seasonal salads. Choose a small, medium or large container and our friendly staff team will fill your box to the brim with whatever choice of food you fancy, hey presto! As well as being Vegetarian, most of our food is Vegan. So, if your diet is dairy free you have a great choice at Beatroot. We also cater for wheat-free and gluten-free diets…ask a member of staff for details. We also offer a fab selection of smoothies and juices, which are made to order using the freshest ingredients. Our cakes and flapjacks are all baked by us and we serve great organic, fair-trade coffee, plus teas and herbals.

I have to make it clear that we didn't actually eat here -- and so the rating doesn't reflect the food itself. Beatroot is a cute little place right in the middle of Berwick Market. The food range is salads plus comfort food = cheese or no cheese sauce things and quiche. The problem is that it's all delivered in boxes (small, medium or large) -- whether eating in or eating out -- which means you have all the food dumped together-- ok, kind of the way it will end up in your stomach, but is that attractive? Leon, by comparison, does also serve food in cardboard boxes but these have more lateral space so at least resembles a plate.
However, it's cheap and the food is probably fine.

Loads of interesting vegetarian and vegan dishes on offer, the medium box is quite a bit of food, I would have been fine with a small. The server really packs it in!
You do end up with a bit of a mishmash, so you could be super disciplined and just ask for more of 3 items, say.
Atmosphere is festival stall - simple bench/tables, eat and go sort of place.
Recommended.

We found this place on Time Out's website. The cafe is a bit crowded and there is only a tiny seating area and no toilets. However, public toilets were nearby. There was a lovely selection of food and I like the idea that you pick a size of box (we paid £6.50 for a large one) and get to fill it with a mixture of dishes. The food was full of flavours and the dhal not too spicy. They also have a good selection of juice and smoothies.

Oh come on why do vegetarians have to eat lukewarm food out of cardboard boxes with wooden forks, grow up - buy some plates and serve some booze. Less civilised than McDonalds - the smoothie maker is so bloody loud you can't hear yourself think never mind have a conversation.
