Respond to Review of CLOSED: Beatroot Cafe
Review: On Berwick St in Soho where they hold the market. There is a bit of blonde paneled modern seating inside and a couple of low tables outside. The left side inside has a counter with hot food and cakes. When I went the market had packed up and the garbos were doing the rounds which we had to compete with to hear ourselves. We were glad to sit outside though as it was quite a hot day. You get a choice of three sizes of boxes and you indicate to the counter person what hot food you want in it. I chose a small box and it was piled high with food so was ample for dinner. The top flaps of the box prevented anything from dropping out. I presume if you take away they would have to close it and would give you less. Whether eat in or takeaway they use the same paper boxes and cutlery made from wood fibre materials. It's environmentally probably better to wash and reuse plates and cutlery for people eating in. I had about five different options such as lasagna, bean and vegetable stews, salad leaves and sausage rolls. I got quite a few potatoes in my box. It was quite hearty especially because of the potatoes and was fine.I had vegan chocolate cake with chocolate icing for desert although I was actually full enough after the above. It was alright although I have had better vegan chocolate cake and icing before. I also had a mocha which tasted distinctly coffee like. Service was pleasant and helpful. For dinner including desert and a beverage it came to just under GBP10 so value was decent.
