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....

This must be our fourth visit and lived up to previous visits. Stock of vegan stuff to take out (nooch, Mayo, squinty cream etc.) is much improved. Hand made chocolates for sale, lots of tshirts, hoodies and Christmas cards and prints featuring duke and friends. New hot drinks available. Fancy versions of hot chocolate type drinks. Lovely! Peanut butter slice... More

Although it's good to find vegan restaurants on my travels I was disappointed with this one. My meal was presented excellently but I believe most the goods are just bought in whereas I like to try freshly cooked vegan foods. Having said that I'm happy to eat packaged foods but I believe the price is a little high for packaged... More

We enjoyed a delicious meal with vegan friends at Calf Cafe. There was plenty of space available when we visited, so found a table for four. We ate there on a Sunday. Perhaps the cafe will extend their opening days and times to include Monday to Thursday..?! Anyway we highly recommend this cafe.

Popped in for a take away burger as I was in the area and had spotted it the day before. Do not be put off by the menu; everything is vegan! I got the chicken burger which came with skin on chips and a side salad which was dressed. It was absolutely fantastic! Great texture to the burger. If I... More

The food was fantastic as was the service and ambience. This is my new favourite cafe in Scarborough. Plus some of the proceeds go towards upkeep of the animal sanctuary. Love this place!

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

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
