Attached to Mellow Johnny's Bike Shop in the Warehouse District, Juan Pelota Cafe is a biking community hub — people wearing Lycra will often meet up there for a quick espresso before going for a ride. The coffee is from small, independent producers, and conveniently you can also get your bike fixed, because you have no idea what you’re doing when it comes to bicycle repair. It’s dog-friendly, and if you want to get some work done while you’re here, there are very solidly-built tables with built-in outlets., If you’re hungry there are smoothies, breakfast tacos from Veracruz All-Natural, and pastries from Quack's. Happy Hour starts every day at 3pm with discount wine and $2 beers.
