Whether you’re on to two wheels, on four wheels or on foot, this friendly hangout attached to a bicycle repair shop is ‘wheely’ good – sorry! Solid fuel comes from burgers, lasagne, meze plates, wraps and salads plus light bites including pastrami and emmental toasties – although the hottest ticket is breakfast (try the full English, ‘three eggs your way’ or creamy mushrooms on sourdough toast). To drink, perhaps a glass of Chardonnay, a pint of Smog Rocket from the Beavertown Brewery or a smoothie – if you’re in charge of the wheels. All-comers park up here (especially at the weekend) and the whole place is a joy with its ample food, knowledgeable baristas, full-time mechanics and pretty courtyard.

Great coffee. The atmosphere is great and it is nice to have somewhere with a theme, but one that isn't overbearing. The cycling shop angle gives the place character. We went at the weekend and it was very busy but there are lots of tables. Thoroughly enjoyed breakfast here.
Wonderful cosy atmosphere. Delicious food. Wooden furniture and bike theme. Great for those who enjoy a homely atmosphere and are enthusiastic about cycling!
Great place, not sure about the name though. What if you really had no hands, like war veteran for eg
Great little cafe in a good location. Coffee and breakfast were bith great and priced pretty well for central London.
Loved that there was a workshop on site as well as the bike shop. Perfect place for cycling fans (although also fantastic if you just wanted a coffee and something to eat!)
Soo friendly ,really good atmosphere when cycling is on due to the big screen ,they have movie night's ,knitting nights, amazing food especially the healthy cakes and the only place I can find that does Chelsea guns,also the mechanics are really helpful and try and fit you in in an.emergency one time my bike broke and I was stranded and they booked me a taxi to bring the bike in.
And also there's always something going on new gadget launches etc so theres always something to watch .
And the coffee is perfect ,just right ,
Amazing place , so helpful
Horrible milky tasteless coffee!! I gave them the benefit of the doubt and tried multiple times as I live nearby but it is consistently awful coffee!! The nail in the coffin is that I tried the big breakfast here and it was absolutely disgusting - watered down eggs, soggy bread and sloppy uncooked bacon. I saw a few people trying to politely finish their eggs and cannot believe this place doesn't have bad reviews?! Definitely not worth visiting, although people seem to like to hang out here, don't come here for the coffee or food!!!
Such a good cafe. Huge, sofas, wi fi, power points. Full of bikes and poncy hipsters on Macs. Amazing coffee that you will pay an arm and a leg for (soya latte = £3.35). Pies are good too, and salads. Sausage sandwich a godsend when hungover, ditto coconut water. Cakes are also incredible. Have I sold you on it yet? It's also open late and sells beer.
