Owner Dan talks about why he started Velo, the area he loves and what keeps him rolling.

A chilled atmosphere and a welcoming community spirit is what you’ll find when you walk through the doors. Situated in Southbourne on the grove along the SOBO mile, Velo Domestique doesn’t only cater for those inclined to travel by two wheels, it’s all about family, from the cyclists to the freelancers, the foodies to the coffee lovers, the dog walkers to the families young and old, everyone is treated equally.

With a non pretentious artisan feel to the decor, up-cycled furniture, concrete counters and some clever details, the cafe itself sets the perfect tone between productive workshop and a relaxed venue for delicious food, great coffee and carefully sourced craft beers.
