The whole earth café is a holistic eatery situated in the heart of the seaside town of Scarborough, Cape Town.
Our ethos is to provide cuisine that is true to nature, promoting a healthier lifestyle, using
only the freshest ingredients that are ethically and locally sourced.

In 1978, Michele and Harold arrived in Cape Town from Amsterdam and started up the Whole Earth Centre – a natural living emporium offering health products and clothing made only from natural fibres.

Once their 5 children were grown up Michele and Harold moved to a charming cottage in Scarborough, a place that had always captured their hearts. Harold’s passion for this quaint, environmentally-conscious village lead him to assisting his friends in acquiring property there. So rather organically, Harold transitioned into the real estate business.  Now, Jawitz Properties is a well-known asset to the community of Scarborough.

Now, nearly 40 years on from the inception of the original Whole Earth, their daughter Aura, home after 7 years in London, has returned to open the cafe in the newly renovated family cottage. With a keen interest in health and fitness, Aura is passionate about combining the best of first-world-hospitality and healthy food trends with the rustic charm of village life in Scarborough.
