Visit Our Café!
Megafauna is a unique vegan café in the heart of Southport town centre. We are located on Wesley street which has a character of its very own. Our café offers locally roasted coffee, irresistible loose teas, our own blend of hot chocolate and some very special latte infusions. We primarily use oat milk for our hot drinks but organic soya and coconut milk can be used upon request.
We have a very busy kitchen at Megafauna making the best vegan and gluten free treats for you all to enjoy. Our menu changes daily and weekly but you can always count on there being vegan pastries and sandwiches to eat, gluten free frittatas and salad selections, soup made in our kitchen and of course our famous vegan and gluten free cakes. Our fridge is always stocked with our distinctive Megafauna Golden Hummus as well as a selection of freshly made salads. We work closely with local growers and veg suppliers to offer only the best in local and seasonal produce. We want to inspire our customers as much as we want to treat them.
Who We Are
Megafauna is an independent vegan food business in Southport. Our aim is to educate and inspire people with food through our café on Wesley street, outside catering and workshops. To open the doors to a plant based lifestyle so that anyone can enjoy it irregardless of their own personal lifestyle choices. Megafauna was started by Chef Ben who has worked in and out of the food industry for 10 years. After making the change to a vegan lifestyle 8 years ago with his wife Sarah, Ben has wanted nothing more than to run a vegan café in his hometown. With the beaches and sea on one side and the luscious Lancashire countryside on the other, what better place to show the north west what vegan food can really be like than right here in Southport. We love working with other independent businesses and make it our focus to use local growers and suppliers for all of our veg needs. We are passionate about food, passionate about animals and passionate about our environment. We want to be part of the solution and never the problem.
Party and Buffet Food
Organising a party can be stressful enough without having to organise, cook and arrange the food. At Megafauna catering we will work with you to plan your party food, catering for all tastes and ‘free from’ diets. Below is a sample menu of dishes provided at previous events. Feel free to choose from the menu or to request particular dishes, especially if there is a theme to the event and you want the food to reflect that. We love a challenge at Megafauna and relish any excuse to get the cook books out and design a new menu. We are happy to cater for small or large events up to 50 people. Take a look at our Facebook page for more ideas and images of the food that we have done before or email us to talk to Ben and start designing you perfect menu today.

Priding ourselves in being able to make exceptional vegan cakes. We like nothing more than to astound people with our cakes and hear them asking how we made it without the standard animal products. Ben has been baking professionally for 5 years and has developed a large repertoire of vegan cake recipes. He is always on the look out for new and interesting vegan fillings for his cakes and pastries and can often be found with a stack of cookbooks looking for his next treat to make.
Cakes can be made for all occasions. Ben is more than happy to talk cake so if you have a specific flavour or theme in mind then just mention in your email and we will create the perfect cake for you.
