There is a range of seasonal food on offer to refuel the hungry urban cyclist, from vegetable pies and salads to homemade cakes and cookies. You can’t go wrong, however I’d advise getting food before 7pm, by the time I got there in the evening there wasn’t much choice left.
I am not a coffee fan (I blame my youthful taste buds), but this place has a selection of coffee by the local company square mile, which I have heard is very tasty. Apart from a wide selection of fresh juices and soft drinks, Look Mum No Hands! also serves alcohol. I give their Belgium beer a big thumbs up.
Nice bicycles decorate the interior and exterior of this cafe. There are a couple of people on hand to offer bike maintenance, however this doesn’t look too extensive. I’d say this place is better for food than for fixing bikes, however without trying the bike service myself I can’t be too sure! There is also a decent selection of bicycle accessories on offer to buy.
Yes! This wonderful cafe frequently hosts a range of cycle related events and exhibitions. For example, they showed the Tour de France on a big screen, hosted a cycle poster exhibition (ARTCRANK) and even offer a monthly jumble sale. It's these continuous bike related events which places Look Mum No Hands! well and truly in the heart of the London cycling community.
I present to you on Jemma’s amazing cyclometre that Look Mum No Hands! scored.....
