When it comes to authentic, locally owned eateries, it doesn't get any better for bicyclists than Capitol Hill’s reCyclery coffee shop and restaurant.
If the unique tables and chairs made from bicycle parts (all one of a kind built by the owner and his friends) doesn't knock your socks off, then the food will.
From gourmet coffee drinks to unique salads wraps and Czech-inspired kolaches, the reCyclery has good food and a chef (Francis Rojas) that is gaining momentum. The stuffed-dough kolaches range from sweet to savory and work well on a plate or on the run. I've never had anything but good service, and although the food isn’t the fastest in town, it’s worth stopping off before work or after work, before a ride, or on a leisurely weekend.
And while you are there, you can get your bike fixed or do a little shopping in the adjacent bike shop. Heck, you can even buy a vintage cruiser bike out front. It’s hipster heaven.
The location is also very convenient right on 14th and Ogden -- not quite as convenient for vehicle parking but still easy to find.
