A Secret Spot for Cyclists and Scenic Spectators

It’s a spot in the middle of nowhere, but that’s what makes it so great. Located in Scarborough, it’s a real hot spot on weekends with cyclists and sight see-ers. During the week, the deli downstairs packs out with locals buying their organic supplies and freshly baked bread.


I made the mistake of going straight upstairs and missed on the entire deli downstairs. In the deli, they’ve got freshly baked breads, savoury treats and some salads to ensure you’re kept fed. It’s cheaper than upstairs but the quality of the food remains the same, absolutely exceptional. I had a bacon frittata while I was there, and it was tasted like the piece of bacon wrapped in an omelette.

Don’t forget to explore out back behind the Dave Stubbs board shop which is currently being built. They’ve got an outside chill area with space for bikes to be stored for a couple hours. Additionally, they’ve got cookies and cakes to complement your coffees. If coffee ain’t your thing, then I’m sure they can hook you up with an array of different kind of teas.

Coffee & Food:

The coffee is real good, supplied by a company called Uber Coffee, a new roaster located in Paarden Eiland. The coffee comes served simply in white cups, decorated on top with a lovely little latte hearts, to ensure sippers smile first.

Upstairs, there’s a restaurant which sells breakfast and lunch. It’ got amazing views of the surrounding Scarborough scenery and has some real great lounging areas out on the balcony too. The menu is a little steep, but the food is absolutely divine, some real culinary creations to be proud of.

This time it wasn’t a solo trip, with Maxine from LivingintheCity.ct having this to say: “The Hub Cafe is a sweet little spot for a day out of the city. Great coffee, wholesome food and I think it’s fantastic how much they’ve grown in a year.” It’s a great spot if you’re willing to make the trek out to Scarborough. If you’re cycling around in the area, it’s a no brainer and an absolute must. Check out The Hub Cafe located on 2 Watsonia Lane in Scarborough.
