Attached to a cycling shop, this is a comfortable space with limited but good-quality food and drinks.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Although attached to a bike shop, this quirky café also attracts many non-cycling users including parents, local residents and passers-by. Cycling images and memorabilia and a library adorn the walls, while a large screen shows the big races. The handwritten wall menu lists two soups from Union of Genius as well as a range of teas, coffees, hot chocolate and soft drinks. Pastries from Au Gourmand sit on the counter alongside cakes from Suki Bakes that always include one vegan and one gluten-free option. Saturday sees a regular visit from their cycling club, while occasional talks, poetry events and major bike races on television create their own atmosphere.
