The entire experience was a delight, from the booking to the welcoming and seating. Despite being fully booked for Mother's Day, an arrangement was made for a table situated out of the way of the entrance. The service was quick and efficient, the waiter was...polite, the food was extremely fresh, the salad crispy and size of the portions very generous. This is the second time we visit the place as last month we did with friends and it wad fantastic to see that the quality and the experience has remained extremely positive. Will certainly be back to explore other dishes from your menu, thank you.More

All their food is delicious and fresh. The staff are on the ball and always moving making delicious things happen. The environment is super chilled and easy-going. This is Scarborough! A small and simple menu, however, everything is tip top. They are also more than...happy to chop and change things to suit tastes.More

Easy and relaxed location, wooden chairs and tables, no makeup, very friendly and attentive service. We chose a mixed salad, which delighted us with its freshness, quality and complex flavors. Likewise the chicken wraps, very tasty and wonderfully flavored too. The catch of the day,...on the first day cob, on the second yellow tail, fresh, perfect medium panfried, the vegetable garnishes added to it not overcooked and with a lot of its own flavor. Only regarding the wine there is room for improvement. But overall, delicious, healthy, high quality food with sufficient large portions. Were there on two days for lunch and left it each time highly satisfied. Bravo!More

We visit the restaurant for a number of years. Always the food is very tasty and they did even improve over the years. Just the drinks are also a bit tiny (wine, coke, beer)

Being well-known for the Vegan/vegetarian fare, I was more than pleasantly surprised by the grilled calamari. Beautiful!! Kudo's to the Chef!!

On a drive through the Peninsula we came across Scarborough around lunch time and discovers the Whole Earth Cafe. Set back from the road a little, it turned out to be a real gem. Emphasis on healthy food without it being too much in your...face. the beetroot falafel wrap was a real treat and the salad was delicious!More

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
