A newish niche bike shop with a small café and bistro that repeatedly wins plaudits from its enthusiastic local fan base. Increasingly, its great relaxed atmosphere and top-notch vegetarian and vegan food is becoming known to visitors to York, too, as word spreads. An eye-opener for non-veggies, it would seem.
Whether for a snack or bistro style meal or fresh salad, or just a drink of its continental beers, the café has the knack of changing its character to suit the time of day. Coffee and cakes highly recommended!
Just be aware of the limited opening hours. (Tues-Wed 9am – 5.30pm, Thurs-Sat 9am – 8pm) Hot food and other meals till 3.30pm, cakes and drinks in the afternoon, meals and snacks from 5pm.
Tip One for road cycling enthusiasts, particularly during the classic events, which are available on the big screen.
Tip If you are on two wheels, narrow pavements mean there is no bike parking outside. Go to the workshop side entrance, where you can leave your steed safely inside.
