Beans and a Spare… A film about the Eureka cyclists cafe

A short film about an English cycling institution: the Eureka Cafe in the Cheshire that has welcomed cyclists since 1929

The famous Eureka Cafe at Two Mills in Cheshire UK (known locally as ‘The Mills’) is a rare survivor of the tearooms and cafes that came into being in the late 19th and early 20th centuries to cater for cyclists.

Its position at a crossroads in the South East corner of the Wirral peninsula, made it ideally placed for Merseyside cyclists wanting to explore Cheshire, North Wales and beyond.
