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.

Cafe come bike shop with very good value meals in an unusual setting, using old cable drums for tables and with newspapers etc.. One of the best coffees to be had in York. Scrambled egg and sausage sandwiches are excellent. Will be back very soon.

“You have to visit this place.”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

Awesome food drink and service. Even if you only have a drink you have to go in. I think it's technically a cafe but it's so much more. My favourite is the pie and peas (the meat and potato is like a steak pie - so tender I want to go back and have another) but the wife's favourite is the fresh baked apple and brown sugar cake (with wholemeal flour and fresh apples!)
I was thinking of submitting a picture but it's just empty plates. I couldn't wait.
It's also bicycle themed - with a workshop attached. Staff are always amazing too. Do go downstairs if you can.

“Different”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

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.
