Purple Pickle at ANU is pretty good. Spill the Beans at Dickson is good too. Velo Republic at Kingston is worth a look even if just for novelty value as it has a bike shop out the back with lots of bling parts!

Slightly OT, but did you hear about the Brissy cafe that banned cyclists for being bad for business 2 weeks ago? Maybe carry deoderant :)

I'd be happy to find one that made a decent coffee without charging more than the cost of my Roubaix for the privilege. Guess I'll just stick to the home roasted beans and the coffee goodness that comes out of my Diadema Unico Splendor/ Mazzer Super Jolly combination.

South Side
Weston - Sakeenas (seems to be good food, ok coffee and close to stromlo)
Kingston - Velo Republic (Bike shop / cafe)

North Side
Dickson - Praga (Used to have a range of eastern european / russian team jerseys for sale)

Other
Gundaroo - Cork St Cafe
Gunning - The Old Hume. Merino Cafe is ok too, but service has been *slow*. In both need to ask for a strong coffee.
Braidwood - Cafe Albion
Murrumbateman - ? On the left as you ride in to town in an old yellowish house with a bull nose verandah.

The recently opened Lonsdale Roasters (next to Lonsdale Cyclery and opposite the Lonsdale St Ride Shop) seem to be full of lycra clad cyclists every morning and there's bikes hanging up on the walls, so would say they seem bike friendy ; )

Prices are decent too... I've been going just because it's the best coffee around (imho), but the treats are better at Cornucopia. Solution: stop off at cornucopia for take-away, eat while walking to Lonsdale Roasters, get coffee.

Roasters hours aren't great though in the afternoons or weekends (close 2 on Saturday, not open Sunday) but they do open early, so alright for the earlybirds.

Roasters make a great hot chocolate.

+1 Roasters... around the corner from work!

While the coffee isn't the best, the gelato is great in the little cafe in Parkes Place. Central location means its a good halfway stop.
