What an interesting venue for a cafe. Coffee was great and seeing gardens with herbs & veggies just outside was wonderful

The title says it all really, definitely worth a visit if you're a cycling tragic like me. Not so for the wife and kiddies, although the quality of the coffee, service, and food makes up for it.

They get their beans from one of my favorite roasters in Melbourne. The place is popular with cyclists and has relaxing environment to enjoy a coffee. I ordered a double espresso and it is quite good. Try the other drinks and food next time.

I had a chicken focaccia and it was lovely. Sitting by a lovely fire. This is a cyclists paradise with a tacked away. It is a great spot to have a quiet drink. Dinner and drinks and maybe a light live band.

A cosy, welcoming nook in the High Country with a Brunswick Street vibe. A great meeting spot for cyclists and anyone else.

Run by cyclists for cyclists we are unashamedly laid back and easy going. Plenty of bike racks and lots of like-minded people. We are the only cafe in Bright serving Padre coffee. No smoking inside or out.
