We ordered the traditional burger which came with beautiful home cooked chips and salad. As a vegan this place is fantastic and the waitresses was very friendly. It's great to find a vegan cafe with such great food.

So happy to have discovered this place! Dogs are allowed inside and the place is great :) Being a vegetarian it took me ages to decide what to eat as I am not used to such choice! There is choice for kids and the salad is absolutely delicious with so many ingredients! Very very impressed! My meat eating partner had... More

This is a lovely restaurant. Great choices on the menu. Lovely salads with many ingredients. Good sized portions. Just a shame the burgers are all from packets in the fridge. Better to have a smaller burger choice and be homemade. Gluten free bread was rock hard. Bread buns on burgers cheap pappy white breadbuns. They need to be healthy ones... More

We called in for a drink out of the horrid rain last week during our break, ordered a cappuccino and a hot chocolate. The hot chocolate came about ten minutes after we had ordered with a 'your cappuccino will be over in a sec'. By the time I had finished my drink and the table next to me had been... More

I came here twice with my Grandmother and we both really enjoyed it. A wide range of food, good quality food. It has options that both vegans and non-vegans would enjoy including imitation meats and more normal food like jacket potatoes and toasties. But I recommend the burgers, they have a really good selection. I had the garlic mushroom burger... More

Incredible place, delicious food, and for a wonderful cause. This place proves that vegan food can be so scrummy! And the atmosphere and surroundings, pictures and gifts for sale, show great compassion. I would never eat anywhere else on a visit to Scarborough. The best xxx

Fell upon this café by accident on TripAdvisor so, being a family of vegetarians, we sought it out on our recent Scarborough visit. It is only open Weds - Sun 12 - 4.30pm during the summer. We weren`t disappointed - it was great! An oasis of vegan-ness in the sea of donuts, candy floss, fish and chips and other traditional... More

I had looked forward to visiting this restaurant and was planning on purchasing a light healthy lunch. I fully support the idea of promoting the welfare of animals in the food industry and thought that it was a great way of purchasing cruelty free food. However, the service was terribly slow. I waited half an hour for a baked potato... More

Stumbled upon this little gem when we were in Scarborough with our parents - didn't realize it was Vegan until we were seated We enjoyed wonderful Lattes and cakes here - the girls went out of their way to make my missus a lovely ice-cream with gold on the top...! We intend to go back and take our grand-daughter The... More

Back to C-A-L-F Café for the second time. It is like a pilgrimage! Every time we step through the door we know we are in for a fantastic meal, the only problem I have is chosing what to eat. I went for the "omelette" followed by Salted Caramel cake. The omelette was wonderful but the cake was out of this... More

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
