Supplying coffee and servicing bikes for the people of South East London.
A bike repair shop with a small cafe, London Velo can be found half way down Deptford High Street. With minimal decor, plant pots a plenty and small piles of cycling books; this place is on a slightly different page to the other cafes in Deptford.
We spent a few hours enjoying their garden, filled with plants, cushions and pallet furniture. LV is a dog friendly venue too and with their own resident dog Maurice wandering around, there's a lot to love about this spot.
London Velo also have their own onsite bike mechanic, making this place super popular with south London cyclists. Their menu is simple but tasty. We ordered one smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel (bagels imported all the way from Brick Lane) and a slice of sourdough topped with goats cheese, avocado and dates.
Whether you've got wheels or not, if you find yourself in this part of London, it's definitely somewhere to check out.
