“Fresh flavourful food-spot”

Starling and Hero Bicycle Cafe
Ranked #1,471 of 2,933 Restaurants in Cape Town
Price range: US$ 35 - US$ 95
Description: Simple, healthy, delicious food. And bicycles! We are a classic café with a small bicycle Co-Op, situated at the Woodstock Exchange in Cape Town. At the café we whip up coffees, various freshly made juices & smoothies, and a variety of on-the-go foods and healthy snacks. Omelettes are served all day and are a definite must. Every Friday we have beers & boeries and if you come to the café by bicycle, you get 10% discount (but please remind us when you pay). In the same space you will also find a small workbench and bicycle tools, available for anybody to use during our business hours. The idea is to provide a space and the necessary tools for basic bicycle maintenance. We also sell various new and second hand bicycles, as well as some accessories.

We went a-walking in Woodstock to get abreast of recent developments in the area and found this comfortable little place in Woodstock Exchange for lunch. The thirst was semi-quenched with a sleceted combination drink of ginger,apple and lemon served in jam-jars. This just needed to be more ice to really do the trick. However the salads were creative, fresh and delicious. We rounded off with home-made grenadilla ice -cream...oh my... that was a bit of heaven! Friendly, engaging staff and flavourful food meant a second visit was called for...this did not disappoint. Just think of the drinks being served COLD.
