Naw, not that one.
There's another one.

Is it just me, or is this becoming a cliche?

Maybe in Portland.

Definitely not in the Twin Cities. I can only think of Angry Catfish, but they don’t serve beer, just fantastic coffee.

Also, we’ve been riding in the French Alps, the Swiss side of Lac Leman and the Bavarian Alps the last three weeks and I’ve noticed no shops like the one cited.

Plenty of places to stop and drink coffee and beer though.

Stimulants in the morning; depressants after brunch. Or vice-versa. And if you get too much of one, you can balance it with some of the other. What a time to be alive!

Huh. I'll have to check the place out at some point.

As far as it becoming a cliche, I'd have to ask how common the phenomena really is? Because there are two of them bracketing Inner NE, does that really make it a cliche, or just another of Irvington's lovely conveniences?

I have yet to find an LBS that also does brunch & Mimosas.

We've got one in downtown Phoenix with a cafe, I don't believe they serve alcohol though. And one of the owners rides this:

Okay, they sell beer and coffee. But do you trust them to work on your prized vintage bikes?

Well, I work on my prized vintage bikes after drinking coffee in the morning, and beer in the afternoon.

It's a well known local fact that beer brought to Atelier Gugie can get small jobs done fairly quickly. Good idea to do QC in the morning, however.

fad that came and went in San Francisco: Mojo in the Western Addition used to be a bike shop in the back and cafe with food, coffee and tap beer in the front with a sidewalk "parklet" in the front-front, but they closed the bike shop so now it's just a cafe and beer joint.

Out Here , the Building Owner subdivided what is an old Car dealership,
the Bike shop lost space to the new Bistro , that sells both (prepares & serves food)

LBS still has the basement, The Keg Fridge is down there , for the new Business, next door.

Mimosas? That's what middle-aged women drink when they gather to complain about their husbands who are out bicycling.
I only mentioned brunch because that's the artificial construct some people switch from coffee to beer.

Well there's a local brewery (Grist, here in the southern Denver area) that just built a bike repair shop inside the brewery, right next to the bar.

Breweries fixing bikes, and bike shops serving beer, what a great time to be alive!

We had one for a couple years in Brooklyn, but they recently closed down. It was a nice shop and I liked the owners.

Yes it is. Should be a rule that they are acceptable on an accessorized bike.

@polymorphself I assume that is not Phoenix Bike Co that uses the PBR type logo on some decals? IIRC those guys are mostly into old school cruisers and BMX.

Met them at a bike show at a bar in Glendale and regret not bringing my road stuff. They would have enjoyed and many that attended asked about road.

We also have a brewery that is bike themed but does not sell bikes. Well, they did have some marketing ones I believe, unless something has change. Pedal Haus in Tempe.

Nope! It's Called Bicycle Nomad Cafe, it's attached to the Velo Bike Shop. Have never been to Pedal Haus, but I'm not much of a drinker. When was the bike show in Glendale? And how was it? Any C&V stuff?

I think maybe the local bike shop, in all it's forms, is disappearing. So, if they sell food, or beer, or whatever... to survive maybe, that's a good thing. It's sad, those stories of a "bike shop that sold food" is now just a "food shop".

Ill have to check it out. Getting off topic so will try and keep short. Pedal Haus is on Mill and also serves a full menu. Tour De Fat is held in the area in October. Another place to check out for lunch or to ride to is North Phoenix (on Central) Spoke and Wheel restaurant/bar. It runs along the canal so many riders stop in and has place to keep bikes, hang helmets...

PHX bike co has a FB site .It's a hispanic guy that runs/maybe owns. They do swaps and shows every so often with a DJ present, a bit of a party atmosphere. Yes was lots of vintage but mostly Schwinn and 80s BMX (some beauty's were there).

Most of the LBS here are only one or two doors down from a local brew pup and/or local coffee joint.

When my wife and I were in Ireland, we had a bike shop replace a brake cable on her Raleigh in my cousin's home town. It was a combination trad pub and bike shop. I recall enjoying a pin' o' Smithwick's whilst waiting for the install.

This was in 1985.

The bike is still using that cable, IIRC.
