We love a nice piece of leather and a good cup of coffee so when we heard about a motorcycle shop that doubles as cafe we knew we had to check it out.
In 1948 2620 Rock Bay Ave. was an auto repair shop. Today it’s home to Wheelies Motorcycles, a full service motorcycle shop and gourmet eatery. The smell of espresso with a hint of worn leather and motor oil gives the entirely refurbished space a warmth you won’t find at any other garage, and an edge you won’t get at your regular coffee shop.
We’re not exactly well-versed in motorcycle culture and we won’t be making use of the u-wrench service or talking shop with the mechanics, but anywhere that serves up Baked Mac n’ Cheese and Braised Pork Sandwiches with house made ice cream and Bows & Arrows coffee is a win our books. And it’s not hard to tell that this place is already a favourite with bikers and hipsters alike – the cool practically hits you in the face the second you walk through the door.
