We were pleasantly surprised by this lovely spot and fabulous food. I always say you can tell how good a restaurant is by the number of patrons... especially after 2pm. This one was full. We stopped here for a late lunch and we’re not disappointed....Being vegan and gluten-free there were plenty of options on the menu. I had the Whole bowl, it was fantastic! They also made a dairy free smoothie for me. Do take a turn around here when you’re in the area, it’s well worth it.More

Absolutely love their fresh food! I have been there many times and have always had exceptional food! The food is fresh, crunchy and delicious. I’m not vegan, but love all their vegan dishes as they are made with love!

We spent a wonderful relaxed morning at this beautiful cafe. The cafe is set back from the road so be on the lookout for the sign. The trek over the mountain from Claremont in itself such a treat. We were greeted by very friendly staff...and could choose our table either on the verandah,indoors or the courtyard adjacent to the covered indoor seating. Breakfast menu has all the usual suspects and hands down as the best cappuccinos ever. Quality ingredients have been used and portions are a generous size. If anyone has travelled to ubud in Bali this place reminds me of the cafes dotted all around the town. One could easily spend a few hours just enjoying the the peacefulness and beauty of Scarborough. I love finding these little gems in our backyard and look forward to returning very soon. I always have a peek at the bathrooms in an establishment as it usually is a very good indicator of the cleanliness of the staff and management and how comfortable I will be consuming the food....the bathrooms are extremely clean and tidy. See you soonMore

What is not to love about this lovely, quaint restaurant in Scarborough? If you don't live in Scarborough, the drive there alone is incredible... On arrival, one is always greeted with a smile. In the winter you can sit cozily inside by the fire, in...Summer, on the verandah, dog at your feet and the smell of the ocean to accompany you. The coffee is luxurious, how do they get the milk so silky? The menu is exciting. All the items are delicious so it's difficult to choose! They have something for all taste buds and cater extensively for vegans and vegetarians. Not to mention, the portion sizes. Talk about generous! Thank you Whole earth café for existing. I live for my next visit.More

Excellent friendly healthy spot where we indulged in a vegan breakfast. Dog friendly. May need to reserve a table over weekends (there were reserved signs on a few tables)

So this quaint little spot had the most cozy atmosphere and lovely decor. The coffee was great, service was spot on....and the food! We shared a Shroom. It is a mushroom sauce on a type of hashbrown made with all sorts of veg but not...potato. What a lekker little spotMore
