Elegantly designed showroom with bikes on the backside and a café-bar on the front that serves the best of coffee, espresso style. Old and new items like handmade suede saddle, books, bike accessories, biking shoes, etc. are sold. It is small and dainty, but it has the aura of a place that is more than just a café for its owner. It houses a dream of someone who wanted to do just this in his life – restore old bikes and serve rich, flavorful coffee. The menu doesn’t run long but it offers sandwich, salads, pies, torta caprese, and two varieties of Italian coffee, one among them being the craze among Neapolitan coffee masters, Passalacqua. The bar offers limited variety. On weekdays, it opens at 8am and at 10am on weekends. The rich aroma of finely ground, full bodied coffee and meticulously stored racing bikes will tantalize your senses. Students from the nearby university who go around cycling can stop by for a caffeine-boost.
