Woodlawn Cycle Cafe was a restaurant and bar located at 5530 1st Avenue South in Woodlawn.

It was opened in January 2016 by Armand Margjeka and Kyle Campbell, in renovated space leased from REV Birmingham, across the street from Margjeka's Open Shop boutique. The concept for the cafe was built around the culture of cycling, specifically as practiced in Europe. The business featured espresso drinks, pastries, fresh breakfast and lunch dishes, and a small assortment of cycling apparel for sale. Wall racks were installed for customers who preferred to bring their bicycles inside.

The Cycle Cafe closed in August 2020, during the Coronavirus pandemic.
