Visiting Southport anytime soon? Well make sure to swing by and check out the unique and quirky café that is Megafauna. The independent vegan café, based inside Cambridge Walks, aims to educate and inspire people whilst also help demystify the plant based lifestyle so that anyone can enjoy it regardless of their own personal lifestyle choices. The café offers locally roasted coffee, irresistible loose teas, Megafauna's own blend of hot chocolate and some very special latte infusions too. Oat milk is used as standard in their hot drinks but they always have gluten free options available too.
Megafauna started in 2017 as a small producer making cakes and catering for events by owner and head chef Ben who had been vegan for over ten years. In 2018, Ben found Megafauna's first official home nestled within the independent shops on the beautiful Wesley street in Southport. The Megafauna café opened its doors and had a sell out first day on the 1st July 2018 serving unique vegan sandwiches, fresh and seasonal salads, gluten free cakes and of course their famous brownies. In just three years Megafauna had made over fourteen thousand sales - now that's what we call a vegan victory!
During those first three years, Megafauna are proud to have given hundreds of people the opportunity to try some great vegan food after catering for five weddings, eight festivals and creating over three hundred birthday cakes! Megafauna have also held three exclusive annual Christmas dining experiences and ran two hugely successful Veganuary events as well.
As Megafauna's community and customer base grew, Ben decided it was time to find a new home to upgrade to. Their new site would sit just around the corner from Wesley Street located just off Chapel Street positioned within a beautiful Victorian style covered walkway with lots more space to offer and safe from the elements.
Megafauna offers customers the chance to kick back and relax or simply grab a coffee and go. They also offer catering services and sell their famous celebration cakes made to order with a huge selection of flavours to choose from - so now you really can have your cake and eat it too.
