Today was a public holiday and was supposed to mark the start of spring, but upon waking up early this morning I was surprised to see it snowing so I guess spring is not quite ready to appear just yet. As I've been cycling most days this winter since Jan 2nd today was rather easy even though it was snowing and what better way to start the day than a nice cup of Longwood Coffee from Cafe Velo. Cafe Velo is a new bicycle theme cafe that is open from 9am till 5pm every day except Thursday and has fantastic locally roasted longwood Coffee and great daily lunch sets, home made bread, Quiche, Cottage pies, hand made chocolates and other fantastic food. If you are looking for a place for a coffee or need some lunch drop by and check it out. There is also a covered bicycle stand outside the shop which is handy if you don't have a kickstand on your bicycle. Pictured above is my Kona Jake cross bike covered in snow after my commute into the city this morning and some pictures of Cafe Velo and a map of where it's located.
