Mandrakes A Magical Experience was born out of a love for coffee and cake between Aileen Piper and Gail Usher.

Both ladies had a huge passion for coffee and cake but also for their market town and community of Ormskirk. They wanted to bring something special and unexpected to the area, aimed at families, the young and the old and everybody in between. Mandrakes has something for everyone.
With both Aileen and Gail being big fans of interior design, creative art and of course, Harry Potter, they wanted to open a cafe bar with a difference. Not only is Mandrakes original in its design and decor but it contains all manner of curiosities, from old folklore stories of the Mandrake’s history (first mentioned in the bible) as well as tall tales of friendly ghosts and mischievous sprites.  Ultimately what the girls created is a magical experience for everyone while enjoying the pleasures of drinking coffee and indulging in cake!

Mandrakes is a magical place to spend time with family and friends in an environment that captures the imagination. We are centrally located, only a stones throw from Ormskirk train and bus station. Several car parks are within a couple of minutes walking distance from our shop.
