I guess it's the same the world over: wherever there are bikers (or cyclists) there are bikers' cafés. Dunnies (Wharfe View Café) is one such, pleasantly situated just by the river bridge in Otley. It's been there as long as I can remember and there are always bikers there, either just starting a ride, having a pit-stop in the middle of one or congregating at the end of a day out. It's what's known as a 'greasy spoon' and 'full English breakfast' (eggs, bacon, fried bread, beans etc) served all day, bacon or chip butties and strong tea are the mainstays of the menu. Let's hope such places never die out, as they do add colour and life to the local scene.
