After a nice day in Scarborough we thought it would be nice to check this place out as we had seen good reviews and it has a great ethos. One of our group is not vegan but there was plenty of tasty vegan options which the could chose. We arrived on a Sunday and the cafe was busy at opening... More

Our only wish was that we had found the Calf Sanctuary before settling for a chip shop (though we did enjoy them). We shared a lovely cake and teas and it was yummy. Such a fantastic place that supports a good cause. The cafe is also a great alternative to the typical unhealthy collection of chip shops and burger/steak houses.

Really love the premise of this little cafe, but feel that improvements could be made in the execution. I thoroughly enjoyed my falafel supersalad but the other half (a firm meat eater) struggled with his vegan omelette. Service was very slow - 10-15 minutes for a tea and a coffee. Several tables still had dirty cups and plates including our... More

Visited both yesterday and today for lunch. The food is amazing, the salads are appetising and tasty, the chips are fabulous. Everything tastes fresh and is nicely presented. Portions are generous and very reasonably priced. The coffee is excellent and a good accompaniment to the range of delicious cakes which are available. It is a refreshing change from chain establishments... More

Lovely place with really good food at great prices. The falafel and humous salad was great. They also have a great range of drinks. Was nice to see a selection of vegan products for sale too. Will definitely return soon.

We had a great visit last weekend. It was so welcoming and dog friendly. The decor and surroundings are comfortable and it has a good atmosphere. It's great to have a totally vegan cafe,there's a good range of things to choose from,the prices are good and the portions are big. There are also other things to buy,including clothing,gifts and food.

We were taken here by my vegan friend, we were a large mixed group of vegan's, veggies, meat eaters and lactose intolerant so finding places to eat can sometimes be challenging. So many places the choice is limited, puddings and treats are often off the menu but most definitely not here, EVERYTHING is Vegan. We all indulged (a little too... More

Peaceful atmosphere, friendly staff, delicious food. All vegan, all tasty and lovely. I travelled 180 miles specially to visit this place, knowing it's run by vegans, and the takings go to the sanctuary. Hard working people, giving an excellent service. Definitely recommend.

Such a big variety of food, desserts and drinks you're spoilt for choice. You can even buy vegan goodies to take home. They make lots of nice homemade stuff, but as I've seen a review mention they also use branded food such as Fry's burgers. This is to show people how to easily eat more cruelty free meals at home....

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
