We’ve all read many articles online about biker cafes in India but sadly most of them hardly fit the bill. A majority of these biker cafes are just ordinary cafes disguised to look like they offer something for our biking community, when in reality they don’t. Furniture made out of motorcycle parts, stickers and posters of motorcycles or racing legends doesn’t make a biker café.
A true biker café should be one of two things – either a rendezvous point solely for bikers or provide biking related offerings like riding gear, moto touring classes, a workshop, or custom job services. In that sense, I collected a list of the top biker cafes in India that not only serve some lip-smacking food but also create a space that is exclusively for the biking community.
6000 Miles to Isle of Man, Bangalore
Bangalore is probably the biking capital of India with countless motorcycle groups, the endless list of destinations, and a biking culture that other cities dream of. And a popular watering hole for bikers in Bangalore is 6000 Miles To Isle of Man. Fancy name, huh? The popular hangout for bikers can’t be termed a café but it does offer a live screening of MotoGP races, jamming sessions, live concerts, motorcycle meet-up events, interactive tours, and ride sessions.
If you like bikes, then this is a haven for all those who want to be connected to the their favourite hobby. Their Biker’s hub is a family of riders, experts and manufacturers which organises happening biking activities, all year round – for riding enthusiasts who want to explore the unexplored, and share the same love of riding with fellow riders. Whether you’re interested in casual riding or attending sportives and race events you can count on them for some truly memorable experiences.

Motorcycles and food, now that’s a great combination and something that Bikes and Burgers seem to have executed really well. This biker themed café and service centre in Kolathur, Chennai is growing to become one of the coolest biker hangouts in the city.

Already an immensely popular place for bikers, Throttle Shrottle is a motorcycle theme café nestled on the Gurgaon Faridabad highway. It’s a regular haunt for weekend riders who ride out of the busy city taking out their bikes for a quick spin to meet like-minded riders. It initially started out as a workshop but gradually moved on to become a top biker café in India as well where riders meet to show off their bikes, make ride plans, exchange tips and share their pictures.

Now this one is a little formal as the Royal Enfield Garage café in Goa is run by the company itself.

The garage cum café looks quite funky with tall columns of glass, cosy lighting and a full menu café spread over a sprawling space. The venue also features a full-fledged garage along with the official Royal Enfield store.
Even if you don’t own a Royal Enfield or even don’t like one, you could still visit this lovely café for some of the best burgers, plates of pasta, pizzas, and salads in town. And you never know. You might just bump into someone you ride with pretty soon!
