A bike shop selling coffee and jaffles? Say what?!
Whilst their main business is selling some pretty cool cycling machines, Get Ya Fix is also sorting out your caffeine fix at their bike shop-come-cafe with some pretty darn good coffee and delicious foodie treats.
With only a small lounge and couple of comfy chairs, there’s plenty of opportunity to browse the shop or even take away and set up camp in the near by Hyde Park. If you choose to take a seat, the guys do love a chat about anything really! We discussed music, boutique hotels and of course COFFEE.
Like riding a bike, eating food is about balance and they have it perfected here in the food department. There’s a selection of sweet treats including raw and vegan options and doughnuts from Glazed and Confused, bagels, healthy granola from the Granola Girls and the best damn jaffles you’ll ever eat. EVER.
For $7 or $8 you can choose from sweet or savoury toasted parcels of yumminess. Think fillings like nutella, banana and scotch finger biscuit or avocado, spinach, pesto and feta. Me being me, I went with the “nicey spicey” – paprika, chilli and cheese. Holy WOW – yum!
Jaffles come served with a pickle and some corn chips and a dose of knowing you’re supporting local. They grow their own herbs and veggies here, as well as using local suppliers where possible.
Even if bikes aren’t your thing, Get Ya Fix is worth a visit for coffee on the way to work or a lunch time jaffle and sweet treat. Or here’s an idea.. get off the bus early and grab a coffee from these guys and find your 30 mins of exercise by walking the rest of the way to the city! You might even buy a fixie to cycle to work next time!1/471 William St, Highgate
