Have you ever wondered where cyclists get all their energy from? That caffeinated gleam in their eye and satisfied smirk that comes from having feta and avocado mash with their breakfast.
We've found the source, and the good news is you don't have to be wearing lycra to be let through the front door. Cafe Racer, on St Kilda's Marine Parade, is brimming with bicycles, endorphins and meals that manage to be healthy and delicious at the same time. The creative menu, teamed with great coffee and a selection of pastries and cakes make it the perfect escape from the waterfront wind. An overwhelming array of magazines and Melbourne photography adorn the walls alongside the wheels.
Although it is famed by bike toting early birds for its breakfasts, Cafe Racer also delivers a solid lunch menu. By mid morning the crowd is different to the hype of the morning, full of friendly regulars and coffee lovers who just want to look out over the bay while they sip on their frothy cuppa.
