At the risk of sounding like a self-appointed judge, here's an updated list of cafes that I believe qualify, please feel free to argue the case if I left one out that you think should be there. Emily's Tea Rooms - jury out, Zappis, didn't seem to me to be the same establishment for example?

I have not been to Emily's Tea Rooms in Whitwell, Herts. I understand they sell bike spares, which doesn't make this a bike shop...

I didn't know that, but I don't think they do enough to really qualify. Our club hilly goes past their front door next week, maybe I'll pop in and check (no, I won't be racing at the time...)

Agreed, which is why I qualified my reply.

I think they also have a variety of domesticated farm animals for added interest.

Locally roasted coffee and the hottest shed in Sussex - literally, it is like a sauna - perfect during a winter ride so you don't get cold and clammy when you stop. (Cooler in summer, obvs)

(The only financial arrangement I have with them is that they make me pay for my expresso :()

Edit: Not strictly a bike shop, as in selling bikes, doh, but they do various spares, Lezyne tools, and a bit of neat clothing. Must read topic title fully in future......

Last night, the Cubs and I went to the theatre in Cycle Heaven, which is one of our L(ish)BSs.  Cafe, shop and now venue.

Zappi's bike cafe in Oxford (now above http://www.bike-zone.co.uk/) is well known locally and even made the Guardian top 10 bike cafes a couple of years back.

It's changed hands and is now titled 'The Handlebar'.

Not quite as cyclist friendly as before, very hipster. But, you can awkwardly ask Bike Zone (downstairs) to look after your bike for you.

Another shop with a cafe: Rides On Air - Wallingford, Oxon.

Banjo Cycles in Newbury have a café in the shop - no dedicated barista/baked beans server, but they have a coffee machine, tea pot and a range of sandwiches and cakes which will be served by one of the normal staff, and a few tables and chairs both inside and out.

Proper Cycling & Coffee in Hassocks, W Sussex.

Recommended, if a little pricey (but then I'm a renowned skinflint).

Three Peaks Cycles in Settle recently added a cafe and better bike parking facilities, though it's so new that they seem to have not added the fact to their web site as yet.

I was looking at another business but, so far, neither the right premises nor business partner has surfaced.

I might be daft but not bloody stupid . . .*

And to the East of Ditchling on the Lewes road the old car sales showroom has been turned into a cycle cafe and charity cycle shop (Cyclists Fighting Cancer).

Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire. This used to be the TT cycles shop. I think they're still affiliated, but the shop has moved round the corner now and the old premises is a cafe and cycle/canoe hire place. Anyway, they do ace cakes, milkshakes and I'm reliably informed (cos I hate the stuff), coffee.
