Maximus Athlete’s Shop Cafe is a special cafe and a specialty retail shop for cycling, running, and swimming all rolled into one. They opened on February 2016 along Pioneer Street, Mandaluyong City with the hope of breaking away from typical neighborhood cafes and traditional sports retail stores. Situated in the Sparta Complex, the Maximus Athlete’s Shop Cafe has become a hub where athletes and fitness fans can enjoy outstanding great food and top-quality coffee.
Although putting up a specialty cafe wasn’t initially part of the plan, after continuing a coffee crawl across Los Angeles, shop owner and cycling coach Andy Leuterio said that if he were to serve coffee, they might serve only the best – similar to the rest of the sports of cycling, swimming, and equipment that he sold at the specialty retail shop. With that in mind, they took up coffee classes at EDSA Beverage Design Group so they can start serving their patrons specialty coffee.

The store sells all sorts of specialty gear that cyclists at any stage, from just starting out to competing professionally, may want to have as part of their arsenal. The most expensive bike they have costs as much as a second-hand vehicle – about a couple of hundred thousand dollars! The shop also has a bike fit studio and a bike spa.
It is pretty amazing how Maximus Athlete’s Shop Cafe blends the concept of part coffee shop and part specialty retail store beautifully. The atmosphere is great since it is quiet and is just a nice place to either grab a cup of coffee before a working out or just to hang out with friends and get some food after an intense session at the gym.
