Great coffee and custom bikes in the middle of Melbourne

Welcome to The Little Mule bicycle cafe! Sip a coffee, grab a bite and browse our bike shop in the laneways of Melbourne CBD.

Our cafe serves breakfast and lunch, with a focus on slow cooked, satisfying home-style food that you won't find anywhere else in the city. Find out more on our Cafe page, or come in and say g'day to our team behind the bar making all the amazing coffee and ridiculously tasty food.

Tucked away at the back of the cafe is our custom bike shop, where we design and build our very own fixed gear and singlespeed bikes. We stock a small range of cycling essentials and can order just about any accessory or component you can think of. We do repairs too! Check out the Our Bikes page, browse the online store, or stop by and have a word with Hugh and Andy in the workshop.

See you soon!
