Hot choc served on the deck was quite nice, but felt this place was a bit out of the way. No real atmosphere here, it was ok but nothing special.

Lucky to have had a couple of breakfast (best milkshake ever) and lunch here and loved it. Great atmosphere and on a nice day lots of tables out side and the food is great, will happily return next time we are in town.

What an interesting venue for a cafe. Coffee was great and seeing gardens with herbs & veggies just outside was wonderful

The title says it all really, definitely worth a visit if you're a cycling tragic like me. Not so for the wife and kiddies, although the quality of the coffee, service, and food makes up for it.

They get their beans from one of my favorite roasters in Melbourne. The place is popular with cyclists and has relaxing environment to enjoy a coffee. I ordered a double espresso and it is quite good. Try the other drinks and food next time.

I had a chicken focaccia and it was lovely. Sitting by a lovely fire. This is a cyclists paradise with a tacked away. It is a great spot to have a quiet drink. Dinner and drinks and maybe a light live band.

A cosy, welcoming nook in the High Country with a Brunswick Street vibe. A great meeting spot for cyclists and anyone else.

Good morning, we were regulars over the past few years and usually turn up almost daily(4-5 days)y with 2-3 families for breakfast often after a bike ride. Your breakfasts were hearty generous and well presented.The venue was relaxing and a great place to visit for coffee and cake through out the day and even read a newspaper This year we came and were really underwhelmed compared to prev. years, so much so that none any of our family groups revisited. Did you take holidays around mid January as we can't understand the difference. The breakfasts were very basic and uninspiring and muffins were either rock cakes or doughy under cooked I only ordered Iced coffee (as i was late).and didn't bother ordering after seeing other serves. I wished I had ordered a milkshake after having the coffee. The service seemed to be quite young compared to the 20/30yr olds experienced previously. Sorry thought we would ask a question in case it was a family health issue or similar.

Hey Darren hope you are well. Bright Velo is undergoing a change of management at the moment so there may be a few teething problems as it gets sorted out. If you ever have a bad experience please let the staff know as... More
This review is clearly not i tended for Bright Velo It is clear from the wording of this review that the reviewed establishment is in Tasmania. See how the reviewer says that most of the guests were from Launceston (a city on the island of Tasmania) and they themselves had come over (crossed the Tasman Sea) from Melbourne. You don't "come over" from Melbourne to Bright you come up as it is NE of Melbourne. If you look at The reviewer's other reviews you will see this exact same review for a place in Tassie. It looks like they realized they had the wrong place and so copied it to the right one. And then didn't delete the one on our page.

Run by cyclists for cyclists we are unashamedly laid back and easy going. Plenty of bike racks and lots of like-minded people. We are the only cafe in Bright serving Padre coffee. No smoking inside or out.
