    Called in at Byards Leap cafe today - not overly impressed
    Great location - just off the A17 newark to sleaford road near RAF Cranwell (opposite speed camera at Ancaster turning). Loads of room for bikes, seating outside.
    I was the only one there and asked for the bikers normal - burger and chips and a coffee. Food was very mediocre and got a tea instead of a coffee. As I drink both it took me half the cup to realise I'd been drinking tea

    Would I go again?
    For a coffee sat outside in the sunshine, yes. For the food? No.

    There's a much better cafe a few miles further towards sleaford on the A17. Not sure of the name (used to be called Big Al's or something similar). Its the one next to the filling station. Much better food and very friendly staff

    Nottingham

    Gusto has the best coffee in Nottingham and it's a good place to relax or work - no wi-fi though

    They also do fantastic home made Pizzas and a quality full English...

    Sit outside and you can watch the procession of humanity pass by... and keep an eye on the bike

    Lovely people work there, and you can shop in the food hall next door, or walk down to Central Market for middle eastern food shopping.

    Highly recommended

    Gusto Food Hall.

    For a decent mug of tea/coffee in a real mug use the kiosk opposite McDonalds, Skegness. Has tables outside and free bike parking to boot

    Near Willingham woods, Market Rasen. Coming from market rasen, go past willingham woods and about 1 mile on left just as you enter village - great little cafe!!
    Decent food, coffee served in proper cups, loads of outdoor seating and some great views

    Willingham woods, though good for meeting other riders, serves crap coffee/tea and overpriced mediocre food - maybe they think bikers can't tell the difference

    Paid a visit there yesterday, freezing cold, really looking forward to a brew.... but it was CLOSED and looked as though it had been for some time, no furniture inside but all the signs are still up. Web site shows it is up for sale... One to watch in case it re-opens

    "2-10 Cafe" 210 Narborough Road, Leicester

    Visitied today. Confirmed it is still excellent food and good value, a relief as it was even colder today than yesterday! Shop front not that appealing or easy to spot, but it is much more attractive inside and is easily found if you look for it under the railway bridge. Bike parking in easy view from your table as it is directly outside the shop (free for 60 mins)
