Frogtown’s Spoke Bicycle Cafe Adds Beer and Wine to the LA River Experience


The onetime coffee stop and tuneup shop gets an all-day makeover

Frogtown’s shine continues with the reemergence of Spoke Bicycle Cafe. The once-quaint riverside outlet for coffee and a tune-up has become something much more, with a full lineup of beer and wine to complement an all-day menu.

As LA Weekly notes, the opening of the cafe space is happening today, under the direction of owners Laurie Winston and Rich Latronica. Laura Parsley-Gonzales is in as chef, following a stint at vegan Highland Park cafe Kitchen Mouse.

That means the food has a healthy-ish bent, with lunchtime bowls, a veggie burger, and morning tofu scramble. You’ll also find burgers, a full lineup of breakfast plates, plus coffee and drinks. The full daytime menu is below, and the restaurant plans to expand into full dinner hours in the coming weeks.
