Whilst out on my solo ride today I had the misfortune to require the help of ‘Head for the Hills’ cycle shop in Dorking (part broken chain link). Whilst waiting I asked if they could tell me where the nearest Coffee Shop was. The said the The Dorking Deli was just a few doors down the road.
What an excellent recommendation it turned out to be. The staff were very helpful and the coffee and cakes where very tasty. It has a good ambience. It not only does hot beverages and cakes, but a large range of other items you would expect to find in a Deli.
Bikes can either be left outside the front of the Deli, however with the tables on the pavement, it would make it a little tricky to get pedestrians passed or there is a small gated yard at the back of the Deli where bikes could also be left.
This Café would make an excellent alternative to the Café at the top of Box Hill.
The Deli are currently working on a couple of exclusive Sunday Cyclist breakfast/coffee & cake deals but if there was anything in particular you wanted to request please don’t hesitate to get in touch and there’ll see what we can do. In the meantime, should any members visit the deli, please let them know that you are members of Dittons Velo and the’re happy to take card payments with no minimum spend required – to save you the weight of extra coins!
