“Beetroot Sauvage does things with a twist […], 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.”

“Whether you are a vegan or simply fancy a bit of a change, this place is friendly and welcoming and it produces proper vegan cooking, not fast food.”
The Guardian - Grace Dent
“Still, I can only admire chefs who go out of their way to experiment in cruelty-free dining. And in a landscape of cool wellness, Beetroot Sauvage is a breath of fresh air. It certainly does not represent the new, hard-bodied, pseudo-spiritual, Instagram-facing, three-hundred-quid, yoga-pant-clad type of veganism that one might see at By Chloe or Farm Girl, nor does it hide its rampant, chi kung-banging, hippy-dippy, we’re-on-a-holistic-adventure mantra under a bushel.”
“Step inside and you’ll find a cool, boho-style vegan cafe offering family dining, all day breakfasts, healthy smoothies, sandwiches, homemade soups and nutritious salad bowls.”

“Having just moved to Edinburgh, I was looking for a hip vegan restaurant to quell my foodie soul.
And I found it at Beetroot Sauvage.
Having just opened its doors this past summer, this restaurant + yoga studio + events space is doing its best to nourish the community “from soil to soul.””
Vegan Edinburgh - Emma Bathgate
“I am absolutely delighted to report that the food at Beetroot Sauvage is every bit as good as I expected. The vegan “cheese” platter is exceptional – I haven’t had the real thing in a good few years now, but this stuff is even better than the dairy-based cheese I remember. It’s a tough call, but the cashew blue is probably my favourite. It’s absolutely delicious spread on sourdough toast.”
“There's nowhere else like it, we literally can't get enough!

“[The] fully plant-based menu covers breakfast, lunch and dinner - with everything from granola bowls to sweet treats.
Their breakfast top picks include French toast with coconut bacon, while for lunch and dinner there is a sharing platter of vegan cheeses, a nourishing Buddha bowl and much more to choose from.”
“The café has a wide range of healthy food such as soups and buddha bowls, as well as treats such as macaroni cheese, cakes and even afternoon tea! If you try one thing at Beetroot Sauvage though, make sure you try the cheese platter. Marie-Anne is very talented at making at dairy free cheeses, so it’s worth a try if you’ve struggled to find a cheese you like. The macaroni cheese and full vegan breakfast are also both absolutely incredible.”
“ […]A Magnificent Afternoon Tea. What a special place, with a vegan cafe and a wellness centre. […] I highly recommend Beetroot Sauvage for the food and their dedication and commitment to feeding others in a way that nourishes the body and warms the heart while promoting healing for people and for the earth.”
“Beetroot Sauvage is a plant-based café and all-around wellness centre based in the Southside of Edinburgh.
