If you haven't tried it yet, I really recommend that you do. Simple and oh so good. Nothing I've tried elsewhere in the area comes close.

A small 'pop up' style coffee bar that was originally run from the back of a TucTuc. A regularly changing range of interesting roasts and attention to detail mean you'll always get a great cup of coffee. Some limited alfresco seating available so you don't have to drink on the move. Give all of the cloned chains a miss for... More

This is by far the best place for coffee in Reading. Even if I'm working on the other side of town, it's worth the walk. Keep doing what you're doing. If you fancy opening a branch in Didcot I'll be even happier 👍
