Apart from the smell of freshly brewed coffee to welcome you as you enter the Grumpy Cyclist, you'll also see bicycles parked inside. Yes, that's allowed here.
Coffee and cycling come together at this neighbourhood eatery in KL's Taman Tun Dr Ismail.
TO think that The Grumpy Cyclist was almost called The Grumpy Barista is just unimaginable, because it wouldn’t explain its concept as a cafe for cyclists, and the baristas there are anything but grumpy!
According to Alex Iskandar Liew, one of the founders of The Grumpy Cyclist, the cafe was inspired by the close relation between cycling and coffee in countries like America, Australia and Europe, where cyclists would meet at the cafes, hang out and go off for their rides.
“We built it for the community within Taman Tun Dr Ismail (in Kuala Lumpur) and the cycling community as a whole,” said Liew.
