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.

“One of the best bacon sandwiches I've ever eaten”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2014

Being a keen cyclist, I knew I had to check this place out.
The bacon sandwich I've just eaten there has to be one of the best I've ever eaten.
The bacon was lightly crisped which shows a real sign of care.
Too many places now just bang sandwiches out with little or no care in their preperation or presentation.
Not this place - THE CHEF KNOWS HIS BACON!

Result.

“Great Breakfast!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2014

We really enjoyed our visit here. Breakfast was tasty, plentiful and freshly cooked to order. Nice to see an imaginative vegetarian option. Quirky decor and friendly staff add to the charm. Highly recommended.

“Shame about the music”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

We went here yesterday (Sunday) morning for breakfast (4 adults, 2 babies in pushchair). Food was good, service friendly. We were a bit perturbed when a man with a portable keyboard arrived, but thought he was just a customer. Wrong! He started to play - and it was only 11.00am - his playing was OK, but totally inappropriate for the time of day and cafe. We would have stayed for another coffee but the playing was very intrusive, so left. We visit York often to visit family and this cafe was a real find as we loved the food and atmosphere. Hope this was just a trial and we won't have to look for a different place for our Sunday breakfast.
