Opened just six months ago at the tail end of 2020, Nick Motors Coffee is a small little café on Defu Xiang, also known as Bar Street. Opened by a group of friends with a passion for motorcycles, this coffee shop is located right next to the only motorcycle wash in the downtown area. The owners opened the shop so that they would have a place to sit, relax, and have a cup of coffee while waiting for their bikes to get cleaned.
The name of the shop was selected because they thought that it sounded like the name of an old school repair shop, so there’s no actual person named Nick inside, but there are a few seats and narrow tables to sit down and have a coffee. The entire front of the shop is made from glass, so you can look out on the sleepy street and admire the numerous motorcycles parked out front, either waiting to be cleaned or having just finished. There’s even a space inside for motorcycles that are currently for sale, currently being occupied by a 500k beauty of a motorcycle.
The coffee selection is just what you’d expect, with the typical range of espresso based beverages like lattes, Americanos, and the now ubiquitous ‘Dirty’ a shot of espresso pulled over cream with cocoa powder sprinkled on top. The coffee is a perfect pick-me up for a nice day of wandering around downtown. The espresso drinks are also very affordable, all less than 30RMB. There is some limited food at the shop, snacks and other light items, but their availability is dependent on supply.
Beside the coffee and occasional food, there are also some portable coffee pouches available in different sizes. The small pouches are for individual servings, while the larger pouches can serve several cups of coffee. They are designed for people on the go and are perfect for a rest stop while cruising mountain trails on a bike. Each pouch also features a specially designed cover and instructions for use, so that you get the best out of your coffee.
If you’re really into motorcycles, or you’re just looking for a quick pit stop while navigating the downtown area, then this is a place to check out. They open daily from 11AM to 8PM, and will also be planning some motorcycle related events in the near future, so keep an eye open for their next event.
