Fresh. Simple. Local.

Our food is fresh and simple with the focus firmly on quality and where possible we work with smaller, local producers throughout our menu.

We have lots of interesting dishes, from small mezze plates though to delicious soups, pastries, salads and freshly prepared artisan toasties.


Our Food

At the core of our menu you will find our charcuterie selection, where you can build your own board of cured meats and cheese.


Charcuterie boards are perfect for enjoying with friends with a bottle of wine or as something to excite your taste buds whilst exploring our Enomatic wines.

We also serve a selection of artisan toasties, crostinis and snacks, perfect for a lunch on the go, or a lighter dinner.

Finally we change our menu for the weekend to bring you some delicious dishes for breakfast, brunch and also dinner.

Book a table




We want weekends to be fun, relaxing and different, hence why we run a unique menu from Friday evening through to Sunday afternoon. We focus on comfort food for everyone, freshly prepared by John using quality ingredients. We have breakfast, brunch and dinner covered, with an emphasis on sharing plates, especially in the evening.


Our Menus

Our menus will change to reflect the seasons and are constantly evolving to include new and exciting ways to enjoy coffee alongside the traditional options that we all know and enjoy.

We choose who we work with very carefully, focusing on local producers and social enterprises, and using natural and organic products wherever possible.

We hope to see you soon and look forward to welcoming you on our journey to create something truly special in the heart of Reading!
