First Look: MegaFauna's café is back in business

Gigi's Café has finally opened this week after MegaFauna's big move last month. It's much larger than the cafe in the original location, and has quite a few more dining options.

It's raw; it's not quite finished, but it's open.
With breakfast and lunch options -= and even delivery thrown in -- Gigi's at MegaFauna is definitely getting the neighborhood's attention. "We're really seeing it early in the morning and then late afternoons -- which is kind of when people drink coffee," explains MegaFauna owner John McCaskill.
Without the window, customers still have to come through the store for their drinks. But that's not a bad thing, right?
Open Tuesday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., the café still needs some some construction work completed, like the the drive-thru window, but McCaskill says MegaFauna is well on its way to completion. "Believe it or not, it's hard to find someone to do it. Apparently, the drive-thru window thing is a challenge," he explains.
And with any luck, even the trees in front will be in soon. He's waiting for a frost-free week -- but this is Colorado in November.
