COFFEE AND CAKE
ambrosia of the peloton
At Spoke we live and breathe coffee as much as we do bikes. Our iconic 1964 Citroen H van with its corrugated sides, familiar to cycling fans as the broom wagon from Le Tour de France, sits alongside our workshop but, rather than offering anyone who has climbed off an ignominious lift to the finish, the SpokeCyclesCC van produces arguably the best coffee in the County, as well as delicious homemade cakes and made-to-order toasties.
Our attention to detail on the bike is reproduced in our approach to coffee. We select the freshest Arabica beans from our supplier Campervan Coffee Co then grind and extract them to perfection. This is the perfect place for cyclists to hang out and shoot the breeze with fellow riders over a cup of caffeine and a cake.
Whether you’re dropping or collecting your bike or looking for a ride stop, pop in for a sip of cyclists’ nectar. In the winter, customers are invited to dry wet kit over our large wood burning stove. In summer, we boast a large sun terrace with lovely views of the surrounding countryside.
Our café is not just for cyclists – we cater to all! Walkers, horse riders, children, animals and the rest are all welcome! We also have plenty of parking available for those who wish to drive up.
Each weekend the café offers a highly anticipated weekend special alongside its regular offering. Our mainstay cakes are lemon drizzle cake, barmbrack (a spiced Irish fruit loaf), banana loaf, two types of flapjack and gluten-free brownies. We offer a full range of coffee, an extensive tea selection and cold beverages. In addition to this we offer our locally famous made-to-order toasties. With various fillings and gluten-free options available everybody is catered for.
At Spoke we offer a variety of toasties, made with sourdough bread and a range of filings, all made fresh to order! We also offer a gluten-free bread option!
