We originally heard Vancouver was getting its first authentic motorcycle cafe this past summer, and now Jammer Cafe Motors is officially open for business.

The spot quietly opened last week and is currently operating its cafe and restaurant from 8 am to 10 pm daily. The business’ motorcycle workshop and service centre will be opening on October 20.

More than just a motor-themed spot to grab a hot cup of Joe, Jammer has a menu chock-full of sandwiches, salads, and hearty entrées like butter chicken up for order.

The cafe area is separated from the motorcycle building, restoration, and repairs by large glass windows, naturally, to ensure food safety standards.

Boasting rotating lunch specials, and full weekend brunch menu featuring classic breakfast staples like sandwiches, croissants, waffles, and more, Jammer should definitely be on your list of places to eat now that it’s open.

The craft brewery tasting room is also fully open and currently offers patrons nine beers on tap along with a cider.

The new Mount Pleasant venue will continue the burgeoning trend where brands house multiple concepts under one roof.

Ryan Valade, the owner and director of the concept, told Daily Hive that Jammer would be “creating a theatre to the lifestyle and craft of motorcycle building.”

Valade also described the 5,400-sq-ft space as a “community workshop and live stage” for motorcycle enthusiasts.

When asked what makes this motorcycle cafe authentic, Valade said it’s all about the experience.

“What I can say we’ve done that nobody else has done, is combine a restaurant that allows the clientele to watch the actual full repairs and restoration process from the comfort of their seats.”

The garage section of the space will feature mechanical repairs and full motorcycle service by Red Seal mechanics, rentable benches so patrons can do their own repairs, and a parts desk for ordering all your motorcycle needs.

With a heavy emphasis on community, Jammer will showcase “the builders, their rides, and their stories” by shining a spotlight on a new bike weekly, and this includes rare bikes of locals and “famous builders around the world.”
