About Bike & Bean

Durban’s ‘coffee culture’ has been taken to another level by the Bike & Bean group, so named because pre-Covid, a bike hire service was also on offer.

Each of the four shops offers an eccentric, vibrant destination for Durban residents and visitors to the City, to meet and mingle over the perfectly brewed cup of coffee, fresh baked goods or a simple, delicious meal. While coffee is at the centre of what we do, the community is at our heart. Starting with our own Staff, renowned for their service and customer-centric attitude, to the communities/ small businesses and suppliers with whom we work. Our environmentally-sensitive practices make our entire operation sustainable, an aspect we are incredibly proud of.

The Bike & Bean epitomises the City’s warmth and welcome, promoting an all-year-round outdoor lifestyle Durban is so famous for and the ideal base from which to explore the city through its cycle paths and pedestrian network. Through what we do and how we do it, we hope to promote a renewed sense of community and be ‘the place to be’ in Durban, with each of our shops an integral part of the City’s regeneration and development programme and its vision for the future.
