Description: Your Bike Shed Café is a unique place. A comfortable and friendly meeting place for food and coffee enthusiasts whilst supporting cycling culture and the experience of riding. Our light and airy café offers plenty of room to unwind and relax with seating for just over 100 people. Our open plan kitchen sends out delicious home cooked food from breakfast onwards. There's so much to choose from: a good old Yorkshire breakfast, freshly baked home made cakes, soups, salads and mouth watering sandwiches and of course our daily specials. The cafe is not only a meeting place for cyclists but also a great alternative for your morning meeting or weekend coffee spot. The workshop - Need a Repair? Getting ready to ride and discovered a flat tyre? Hit a pot hole and your wheel is out of true? Sometimes you can't plan when your bike needs attention. From fixing a flat tyre, to some comprehensive bike love, we can have you road ready in no time. Estimates and check overs are always free, just bring your bike in and we'll take a look at what needs to be done. Many repairs can be fixed while you wait. We'll give you an estimate let you know how long it will take and make sure you get back out on the road as quickly as possible. If possible, we do it while you wait. If we can fix it on the spot, we will. And if we need more time, we'll let you know when to stop by to pick it up. Come in, call or e-mail us soon so we can get your repair or adjustment completed for you and get you back on your bike.

Found this place as we got caught in heavy rain. Perfect for cycling enthusiasts with different bikes displayed from the ceiling, & they not only have the cafe, but you can have your bike repaired there too. Prices quite reasonable & friendly staff.

Stopped here by chance as we were walking past and needed some refreshments. What a lovely place. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the cafe is spacious and relaxed. We bought drinks and cakes on the whole but one of our group could not resist the lovely and unusual salads on offer and she wasn't disappointed. As well as the salad the cakes were all home made and difficult to choose between. I love coffee and this looked like a place that knew how to make a good coffee. Unfortunately we were all needing a cold refreshing drink to quench our thirsts on this hot Saturday afternoon. Again a delightful and unusual choice was on offer.
I will certainly return and sample the coffee with lunch and a cake!!

We came here for a coffee before watching the Tour in York and enjoyed it so much we came back for lunch. The food and drink were great. The staff were friendly and cheerful although rushed off their feet as it was very busy! Downstairs was huge and the big screen great for watching the Tour! Loved the wallpaper in the very clean toilet! Will definitely return next time we're in York.
