I’ve travelled far and wide but the Mad Cucumber Vegan Lounge in my hometown of Bournemouth will always remain one of my favourite vegan cafes in the whole entire world.
Serving breakfast through to evening meals, Mad Cucumber sources fresh, local and exciting ingredients with an ever-changing menu reflecting the flavours and nuances of the seasons.
Currently, I’m obsessed with their pumpkin specialities for the Halloween season, and comforting vegan bangers and mash for these cold, drizzly autumn days. If you’re visiting on a sunday I highly recommend the roast dinner, but you’ll find a constant array of treats and surprises whenever you visit!
Mad Cucumber was established in Bournemouth’s triangle in 2013 by the loveliest Kamil and Ewelina from Poland. Together they wanted to bring positive changes to Bournemouth’s vegan scene, and the quirky café was born!
With 100% all vegan food Mad Cucumber also has the loveliest friendly staff on hand to help with anything you need. There are also some hidden plug points and free wifi making it a dreamy writing spot too.
I’ve written so much of my projects here and it will always be so sentimental to me. In fact, no doubt when my new projects are released a huge big thank you will go to Mad Cucumber! I’m also so inspired by the community at this cafe and the endless array of talent coming in and out of the cosy surroundings.
Since 2013, I have watched Mad Cucumber grow over the years, from a quirky cafe to a favourite amongst locals who only recently began dinner service.
I have no doubt the next few years will see Mad Cucumber blossom even more as they dominate the vegan scene in Bournemouth whilst creating opportunities to build and develop the vegan community as they go.
How many of you are regulars at Mad Cucumber? I so highly recommend a visit to all my friends in Bournemouth or in the surrounding area.
It’s a truly wonderful spot to escape the world for a while whilst enjoying the very best of vegan food you could ever, ever find.

I also have a whole Eateries tab on my blog full of gorgeous cafes and restaurants I find that serve up a huge portion of whimsy!
