As a vegan it's lovely to visit a place where you can have *anything* on the menu. My food was very good and the staff were friendly and efficient. Would definitely visit again if the opportunity arose.

Great food at reasonable prices. Maybe catering for the non-vegan market a bit too much (vegan cheese burgers and omlettes) but that's me just being purist. The cakes look tremendous and the atmosphere is good. A must-go-to in Scarborough.

Calf Sanctuary Cafe At present we are only open Fri Sat and Sunday but our hours will extend over the summer period. We are mainly an animal rescue sanctuary and after 7 years of hard work we are finally moving our sanctuary to whitby and will be open eventually to the public. Our vegan cafe is not for profit, every penny (other than staff wages) goes directly back to the rescues. x
