The neighborhood’s many cycling geeks bring a genuine sense of community to this charmingly makeshift bike cafe. Vintage prints and tasteful bric-a-brac lend Aran a creative edge, while baristas dedicated to the slow-bar technique ensure coffee that’s fruity, light and packed with flavor. Route out new bike gear in the adjoining showroom, or simply kick back and enjoy the free Wi-Fi with a homemade muffin.
Aran Bicicletta, the owner found the perfect way to marry his love for fixies (both vintage and modern) with his family’s coffee business. Coffees start at B50, best enjoyed with cakes like dark beer Horlicks (B90) and their brownies (B95). There’s free Wi-Fi so bring along your notebook. This retro house is the ideal space to get some work done—you’ll feel like you’re sitting in a library nook and there’s also a cute beagle to keep you company.
From 6;30pm this venue is also home to a cozy restaurant and bar named Barka.
