Somewhere in the not-too-distant past, coffee and cycling became BFFs. Whether cafes made the first move, spicing up their walls with a trendy classic frame, or perhaps, bike couriers realized that a workshop-cum-cafe was a more fitting winter-time pursuit – we just don’t know. Either way, the two wheeled-caffeinated combo doesn’t get much better than at Standert.
Quick espressos are at the ready to propel weary legs straight back onto the tarmac. Having said that, if you want a good and proper rest, you can while away the afternoon on their cracked leather sofa with organic coffee, toasted bagel and homemade ice lolly in hand – all yours for about a fiver. And should any of the bike parts on the walls tickle your fancy, they can whip them together into a custom-built racer for you in no time.
