Café Velo, Beverley
Café Velo, Beverley opened in July 2014. Beverley is a bit close to home for a coffee stop but today was a short morning ride and we added a few miles just to justify going there.
It’s a cycling geek heaven. Retro caps, steel bikes and woollen jerseys adorn the walls – along with unusual prints – some of which I have since added to my own collection after seeing them in there. There are quirky touches such as table numbers fashioned from bike chain and a toilet flush made from a gear lever. There is always a velo-themed film playing on the big screen and various cycle magazines scattered around.
World championship stripes are in abundance including across the chest of staff members. There are bike racks inside for about a dozen bikes. There are a range of cakes (including gluten free) on offer, and the coffee is quite good. Prices aren’t cheap but I’m more than happy to pay the extra for the ‘geek factor’.
