Bike Date Profile: Ryan & Jessica at Cafe Stritch

29 Sep

Ryan and Jessica live in downtown San José not far from City Hall where Ryan works on bicycle and pedestrian programs for the Department of Transportation. They’re big fans of the SoFA district in general and Cafe Stritch in particular. It’s big enough for large groups with mobile furniture that’s easy to rearrange, a great feature since they almost always run into friends there. All it takes is a quick glance at the bike corral to know who’s around.

Cafe Stritch offers a great beer on tap (IPA for him, hefeweizen for her) and outdoor seating that’s refreshing on a warm evening. Stritch offers a variety of well-priced vegetarian dishes, including a vegan french dip sandwich and fries that’s a favorite. They’ve seen some incredible jazz bands perform there lately too.

Cafe Stritch is on the other side of downtown from their house, so although it’s just a short ride away, there are different routes to choose from and they pass a lot of interesting people and places along the way.

The venue: Cafe Stritch at 374 South 1st Street, San José, California, USA
