Review – Whole Earth Café, Scarborough

Address: 257 Main Rd, Scarborough Hours: 8:30am-5pm Mon, closed Tue, 8:30am-5pm Wed-Sun Website Facebook In the quest to try to cover as many vegan restaurants as possible I have literally tripled my petrol budget for the past month.

Address: Unit A112, The Old Biscuit Mill, Woodstock Hours: 8am-4:30pm Mon-Fri, 8am-2:30pm Sat, closed Sun Website Facebook Saucisse is French for “little sausage”.
