Independent cafe based in Kennet Island, Reading just off the busy A33, serving up their popular Asian soup noodle pots, delicious homemade wraps, breakfasts, paninis, toasties, pastries and cakes.

Aside from their famous noodle pots you’ll find plenty of cycling pitstop pick me ups too including a sausage breakfast wrap, hot pepperoni or ‘frank n furter’ panini, bacon & egg o’muffin and beef pastrami sandwich.

For those in search of cake I’d highly recommend a slice of their fruit cake, perhaps the best I’ve tasted (although don’t tell mum), moist and with a delicious winter spiced kick. Tray-bakes include a salted caramel blonde, rocky road and thick apple slice. If you’re lucky you might even find a cruffin or two left too! Great coffee – sourced from Clifton Coffee Roasters.

Popular amongst cyclists there’s plenty of seating outdoor for larger cycling groups including secure racking, there’s also limited seating indoors too. Groups are welcome to ring ahead.
