Cafes To Cycle To

With the rapid growth of the cycling community, what good is it to have a bike, a bell, the biking manners to go with it, but nowhere to go? Here we have compiled a list of rad cafes.


The Grind Coffee Company

Cycle your way to The Grind Coffee Company located in the stunning Melrose Arch. With draught coffee and coffee-in-cone as some of their cafe options – who would not want to have a taste of that? So why not enjoy a great cuppa coffee while your bicycle is safely locked outside?

Warm & Glad

Nestled in the quiet area of Craighall Park, Warm & Glad is a great cafe to which to cycle. With car guards and  security teams on guard, you can rest assured your bike is safe while you enjoy a rich coffee or hot chocolate – among other cafe goodies.

Park Cafe

Cycle your way to Park Cafe to enjoy some coffee and light meals. Popular with journalists, gallerists, ladies-who-lunch and other artsy people, start a conversation about your bike and who knows, you might start a new trend in Parkwood.

Bolton Road Collection

So maybe it’s not exactly a cafe but more of a contemporary restaurant and cocktail bar but, we absolutely had to include it here. Located in the coolest spot on Jan Smuts, who wouldn’t want to cycle to Bolton Road Collection? It’s a definite must, no question about it.

Delta Cafe

Why not take a group bicycle ride to the family-friendly Delta Cafe located in Craighall Park? Offering delicious cafe goodies and divine coffees, it’s a fabulous treat for everyone. With a secure parking lot, you can rest easy while you enjoy your morning or afternoon.

Father Coffee

Located in the trendy area of Braamfontein, Father Coffee is a fabulous cafe. Loved by hippies and bohemians alike, if you have not already cycled to this cafe, do so asap and be one with the people. The cafe is also secure enough to leave your bike locked outside.

Doubleshot Coffee & Tea

Also located in Braamfontein, Doubleshot Coffee & Tea is a slightly bigger cafe with a bit more seating and bike parking space. Serving great coffees and teas, peddle over there and enjoy a stunning cup of yumminess in the inner city sun.

Origin Coffee Roasting

The Maboneng Precinct is a cyclists hub so make your way there and be sure to pause at Origin Coffee Roasting for a phenomenal cup of coffee or hot chocolate. Their staff members are very friendly and accommodating so if you want your beloved bike right next to you inside the cafe, it’s no stress!

4th Avenue Coffee Roasters

For gourmet coffee before you enjoy the Joburg sun cycling on your treasured bike, visit 4th Avenue Coffee Roasters in Parkhurst. With tasty goodies included on their menu, it’s a must-cycle-to cafe when ever you’re feeling for a strong cup of brew. Please consider the locals and their precious hounds who take to the streets on foot.

The Whippet

The Whippet not only serves amazing coffee and cafe nibbles but it’s located in the quirky, and safe, area of Linden. Serving everything with passion, cycle your way to this nifty cafe and have yourself a stunning experience.

Soul Souvlaki

We are all pretty much obsessed with The Maboneng Precinct so cycle back there and check out Soul Souvlaki. With a designated space for cyclists’ bikes. Enjoy your cafe experience while your bicycle is securely parked right next to you.

One thought on “Cafes To Cycle To

  1. Another Café that we as cyclists frequent is Café Rossini Eagles Landing. Situated in Randpark Ridge in Eagles Landing Shopping Centre, cnr Christiaan de Wet and Scott Street. They have a Low Carb and High protein dishes and the ambience is just great with a view over the Eagles Canyon Golf Estate, just off Beyers Naude. Their Lemon Meringue Tart is to die for:-)
