For the Best Kind of Bikers

Sweet local place with the most imaginative slogans. Great bike shop, excellent Java and right at the trailhead. For not-those-kind-of-bikers.

Coffee was fantastic. Panini sandwiches filling and the home made muffins were excellent. Inside is very eclectic and nice area outside as well. Service was excellent

We love this place so much we went three times while we were there for breakfast, and to enjoy a wonderful bike ride on the trail. The service was good in both the restaurant and the bike shop. Great choice.

Great spot to hire a bike on the Rails to Trails route - good quality bike and helmet. Good shop with cycling gear as well. Also a great spot to have a coffee and baking after your cycle ride!

My husband and I biked the rails to trail starting from this spot. It was one of the most endearing times of our Nova Scotia trip. Super charming, friendly and obliviously a great hangout as a reprieve to biking a distance. We had a late lunch and had Panini's . Nicely priced as well as delicious. The scones were excellent...

We rented bikes for 5 hours for 18$ per bike. They didn't charge us for overpassing the 4 hours. Friendly service. We biked 2 hours from the bike and bean to the trellis cafe along the rails to trail. It's mostly in the woods with some nice seaview. We came back on the highway but ultimately i would recommend to... More

This is a good place to stop either going to Peggy's Cove or coming back and the food is Homey and wholesome. There is not a lot of seating but the staff are quick and good value for the money.

Stopped on way to Peggie's Cove with guests. Limited tables and seating. Tried the Peanut soup which was excellent and the Brie sandwich. The service was friendly and efficient. They even had unsweetened home made Tea which I haven't had since leaving the USA south. It isn't fine dinning but is a good cafe.

What a great little place, muffins to die for! We used this cafe a few times on our two week stay in Nova Scotia, such a welcome oasis on the dusty trail to rest after a long cycle or even a short drive!! Hired bikes from here too, great service. Would highly recommend.
