Café Stops

I've listed some favourite Sunday café stops as suggested by local cyclists.
If you know any others in or around Essex and its borders then Andy Ballentyne

Similarly if you have any further comments or info (opening times, telephone no.s, postcode, web adresses etc. ) on those listed here then please let me know.

PLEASE NOTE: There appears to be a gang who are using club websites to find out where club runs are going, and then stealing bikes which have been left unlocked. Please don't let this happen to you and take a lock with you.
