We offer bikes for rent and for purchase, bicycle repairs, sporting goods and apparel, local Dunedin coffee, beer, wine, and so much more.
Meet Our Owner
A few years ago, Jan wanted to do something outside of just racing cars. He put a lot of thought into what his next move would be but never pinpointed a specific idea. One day out and about in Dunedin he heard there was a bike shop going up for sale (formerly Dunedin Cyclery). After a few conversations with the owner, he made Jan a deal and so, Kafe Racer was born. Kafe Racers inspiration comes from Jan's Belgian roots and lifelong love for bikes. The modern black interior features a collection of beautiful racing bikes and a deconstructed Porsche to show off Jan's career as a professional race car driver as well as his passion for cycling. Jan and his hard working staff have put a lot of time and effort into Kafe Racer over the last few years. Jan hopes that Kafe Racer's design provides customers with a comfortable space to wait on bike rentals + repairs, while the Kafe was created to give the Dunedin community a spot to enjoy local roasted coffee, beer + wine, homemade pastries, live music and more.
