Two very popular locations in the Peak District, both bike friendly and popular with bikers:

Wardlow, Yonderman Cafe - https://www.yondermanncafe.com/

Monyash, The Old Smithy Tearooms - http://www.oldsmithymonyash.co.uk/

(I saw Foggy in Monyash, he'd been trail riding in the area)

Both surrounded by excellent roads too.

Cracking breakfast in the Yonderman. That's a regular for us. Monyash is OK but the service... I've seen faster glaciers. Certainly not somewhere to drop in for a quick anything.  If you've never ridden in the Peak then you should. It's just fantastic.  Incredible roads and breathtaking scenery. Far more than you could possibly do in a day. I know, I have tried.

Old Home Café in Pisgah, Iowa. (Think CW McCall)  Old home filler up & keep-on truckin café...https://www.facebook.com/Daves-Old-Home-342044905329/ They've got great food & some of western Iowa's best riding in the Loess hills region.

Do you have a link to Yonderman please?

No I am sorry I don't. But good news, Google had one! They also have evening sessions where they do gourmet burgers and such, but I think you have to book. There is a camp site opposite and a pub with dangerous beer. The Three Stags Heads. IIRC they also have music nights on in there

Just past the famous Seaways cafe on the road between York and the coast at Bridlington is the village of Fimber. 

And hidden in the woods just to the south of the next roundabout is Fimber Tea Cabin where you'll find the best mug of tea this side of the Pennines  and some fine home-made cakes and scones.  And pasties.  And fruit pies.

Just watch your footing in the car park as it's hardened earth and gravel - best to paddle bike into your space backwards so that you can ride off in a very cool fashion, and not  find yourself scrabbling for a foothold and dropping the thing as the hot exhaust pushes your jeans up your shin and touches your bare flesh - not a barbecuing technique I'd recommend.

Another for Yonderman, though I haven't been for a good while now.

Lynn's Raven Café (Biker/ Transport Café).

Scratch that, just found out they've closed down  :155:

If you ever find yourself in the Denbigh area of North Wales, try Sam's cafe. It's situated next to A. and D. motorcycles on a small industrial estate. The food is good value and the cafe caters for the motorcycle fraternity with wall posters and free mags to read.

Are you sure Lnn's raven cafe has closed, that's a massive blow, epic place for summer ride outs.
If your in Leicestershire, Rutland or Northants, then try Hungry Hogs at Hillside cafe. It's on the A47, by the turn for  Belton, near Uppingham.  Run by Su, she's a bonkers biker with attitude, fabulous place to visit.
Also Two flags at Morcott, Iron horse ranch house at Market Deeping, chris Walker Kawasaki cafe, All seasons cafe, Billing Northants.
All great biker destinations
