ABOUT US

Visit us for a quick stop productive meeting or a long lazy afternoon enjoying a expertly pulled espresso and check out some beautiful bikes or chat about coffee and moustaches

Alley Cat is a social hub and creative workspace fused with speciality coffee and a great passion for bikes. A challenge to the traditional coffee bar or bike shop. We are an exciting environment that aims to provide unique brands and products that cater to the needs of life in Maastricht and beyond. We encourage all people to come together and provide a place in which they are comfortable to stay as long as they like.

Superior espressos and third-wave brew methods are served in collaboration with local roaster and Q-grader Dutch Barista Coffee Company. All of our coffees are being subjected to the Q-grading program which is the only certification in the worldwide coffee industry based on quality. We can proudly state that our roaster has the skills to be named the only Q-grader in the country.

Our baristas train for each brew method and only serve what they believe has been brewed or poured to the best of their ability. With our range of homemade food, drinks and high quality products from local producers, it’s easy to keep yourself fuelled all day long.

ALLEY CAT WORKSHOP

Alley Cat hosts a popular and fully equipped workshop in-store at our location in the middle of the city centre of Maastricht.

We aim to provide the highest quality not just with our specialty coffees and homemade pastries, but also with our workshop. Rather than cutting corners, we believe in giving your bike the attention it deserves and ensure it leaves our hands in the best possible condition. Our business model is aimed at building personal relationships and introducing customers to unique and quality products. We have the knowledge and the tools to take on anything from a flat tyre to a full rebuild. Whatever the problem is, we’re going to help you out.

A number of experienced professional mechanics are on site most of the time during our opening hours. No booking required, just pop in – we generally aim for same day service (bikes brought in by midday are usually ready by the end of the day), or if you need anything specific – we’d be more than happy to help and book you in.
