Having read LMNH's reviews and wanting a good place to sit and do work, my boyfriend and I came all the way from North Greenwich to check it out. So overrated - if you want to use your laptop you have to sit at an uncomfortable bar at the side of the restaurant and they have a "no laptops" policy... More

Great coffee, beer and odd bits of good food (salads, burgers, toasties etc) in a basically furnished no frills style. It doubles as a specialist cycle maintenance, spares outlet. Very well patronised and staffed by happy staff so it was fun to visit. Beer was a change from the usual and very enjoyable - these seem to change all the... More

We always visit LMNH on Old St when we're in London. Great food, relaxed atmosphere, plenty to read and great LMNH souvenirs. This morning we went for breakfast and as usual, service was great and staff very friendly. I almost want to have a bike problem so that I can get it fixed whilst I wait...shouldn't tempt fate!!

Bicycle Workshop plus Café. We're from Germany and *surprise* we were looking for an alternative non-touristic location to enjoy a nice breakfast. It was pretty close to our hotel (easyhotel) and we went in. Later on, I read on the Internet that "look Mum non Hands" sells one of the top 10 best coffees in London :) We definitely agree... More

A place where you can relax, have a beer or tea - a fantastic homemade cake - and maybe ask the staff to fix your bike... I love it!

I've been a food and cycle workshop customer of LMNH since it opened around 6 years ago. It's a very well run business for both food and repairs. I've spent at least £1000 here on cycle repairs where their full service mechanics perform on the spot minor repairs / adjustments or complete overhauls one of which I had last month.... More

LMNH is a bit different from most others, but it's not much difference really. Cycles? OK. But for coffees, sandwiches, etc., it's pretty much of a clone. Nice place. Pleasant. Good stuff. But nothing special, really.

I use this restaurant/coffee shop/cycle shop quite a lot and always find that it is great. On this occasion I popped in with my wife. As usual, the staff were friendly, helpful and the coffee wonderful. The pasties & biscuits were great too! They offer great meals at lunch time and the atmosphere is always buzzing. Highly recommended.

A client of mine suggested we et here because he loves his coffee. What an unusual and cool place to chill, even on business. The name of shop naturally attracts cyclists but anyone will feel at home here so long as you don't mind the rest if the clientele rolling in on cycles - even into the cafe - and... More

In the area for the first time. The place looked quirky enough to make it appealing and was also convenient. Lunch ticked all the boxes, and atmosphere was lively enough. Not sure where others are eating to say it's expensive, but I thought the price for two hot lunches including drinks for less than 20 quid was reasonable enough.
