When a growing group of cyclists routinely met at Cassis Bistro, owner and avid cyclist Gilles Brassart (owner of Cassis Bistro, Suzette Bistro and Market 17) saw the need to create Vélo Café, a space dedicated to their lifestyle and sense of community.
Brassart has teamed up with co-owner Joel Goralski (owner of Market 17). Goralski brings his passion for cycling, food and coffee to Vélo Café, as well as his experience (he runs a cycling tour company in Bucerias, Mexico).
Velo Café is one of Calgary’s first true cycling cafes, a cozy meeting place for cyclists to chat with other enthusiasts, sip on great coffee, eat healthful café fare and watch live cycling events together.
All dishes are lovingly prepared by Chef Stephanie Bayer (Head Chef at Cassis Bistro) and Chef Kazumi Sato (Pastry Chef, Cassis Bistro).
