Great meeting place for like minded cyclists. Great atmosphere. Food is average. Shame there are not more similar cycling cafes around.

This is an interesting combination of bikeshop, bar, cafe, restaurant and student/writer hangout. A hipster haven of sorts. However you chose to define this place, the burgers are fabulous! Fresh, tasty and interesting! Highly recommend if you find yourself in the area.

This is a hidden gem of a place. The food and drink is good, the staff friendly and you can get your bike fixed here when you are drinking your coffee. The atmosphere is chilled out and there is cycling memorabilia. Excellent place.

The big daddy (basically a breakfast burger) was amazing! The chips that came with it were great as well. Coffees are good too. Hard to get seating inside at peak times though

Seats are a little packed but the bike/coffee shop combination is a cool concept and well executed. Didn't seem like the best place to work. Better for socializing.

Very cool cafe serving food, good coffee and beer. All whilst having the Giro d'Italia on the big screen. What could be better for a cyclist?
