Bicycle Thieves

Light, fresh, timeless. Bicycle Thieves café on High Street Northcote designed by Pierce Widera is a celebration of modern Australian minimalist design. The floor to ceiling windows and polished concrete floor ensure that the whole space is bathed in natural light. We also love the stunning custom lighting fixture which runs the full length of the main counter and the tiled detailing of the counter itself. It’s the perfect spot for your next Sunday brunch!
