The Courtyard, Cains Brewery Village, Stanhope St, Liverpool L8 5XJ, UK
Tucked inside the renovated Cains Brewery conplex, Ryde has something for coffee lovers and bike enthusiasts in their humble cafe. It has taken up residence right in the heart of the sprawling former brewery, along with dozens of other independent eateries and boutique clothes shops in a developing area of Liverpool city centre. The coffee is served simply inside the stripped back inside area, or on the bespoke sun trap outside areas, which has already become popular with local cyclists.
One outside area is at the entrance to the cafe, the other as part of a courtyard, shared with a adjacent to a neighboring wine bar. Pumps, equipment and all sorts of bike paraphernalia are on sale alongside a breakfast/lunch menu that includes scrambled eggs and avocado, black pudding and chorizoon toasts and even delicious waffles and quesadillas.
They also offered cycling geared snacks including energy drinks and protein bars to gear up their customers for their next ride.
