coffee, bikes, smiles

Very friendly service, great location, super coffee, and bikes - perfect combination! It can be challenging to get a table so be prepared "to go".

Awesome coffee and beautiful custom bikes sold here! Plus the people who work here are awesome. But the seating is more than a little unconventional! There's a big table in the middle of the room plus a few seats up front by the window. Great if you know what to expect, or are on the go (or using the outdoor... More

After walking a 5.5 mile stretch of the bike path, we decided to get a good iced coffee. The lines were long everywhere when we spotted the Ride Studio Cafe and decided to try it. There were a couple of cafe tables outside on the sidewalk which is nice on days when there's not a lot of street traffic. The... More

It's two days into your trip, and you've seen every low-ceilinged historic house in town. You've Old-North-Bridged and Alcott-housed yourself to death and you are ready for one thing *just one thing* that is thoroughly modern. Simple and real, mind you, but modern. Well look no further. It's by far the best coffee for miles, served in the context of... More

Ride Studio Cafe is an eclectic place, offering a cafe amidst pricey bicycles. It often attracts devoted cyclists who arrive on their expensive machines. I often meet friends and colleagues here for a casual chat over coffee. Sometimes the coffee is a big hit, and at other times it's not quote right (one Italian coffee aficionado friend refuses to return... More

While I haven't used any of the bike services I like having them around when I drink my freshly made coffee or espresso, and have a bowl of mom-good chicken soup and a chunk of rustic sourdough. Added bonus: I can pick up bags of freshly roasted George Howell coffee.

It's a bike shop that sells gourmet coffee for prices you'd expect in a store with a $5K bicycle on display. Still, the staff are wonderful and always pleasant. It's not something I'd do every day, but when in Lexington it's an better alternative that sitting in a chain coffee store watching the great American novels' getting written and rewritten.

Unusual coffee - individually made. Sometimes it's delicious & sometimes you cam choke - it depends what they're using that day. Go for the cappucino. It's pretty.

Upon arriving I thought the coffee was going to be good, it looked like a dedicated coffee venue, great machine, barista looked like she knew how to make a good latte. The price for a latte was expensive at $4.25 but thought if it was fabulous it would be worth it as I can not find good coffee in the... More

There is no lack of coffee bars in downtown Lexington, with Peet's, Starbucks, and Panera just steps from Ride Cafe. But give your money to Ride Cafe - their coffee is the best, and they're local. The pastries are delish, too.
