Awesome food and friendly staff. The interior is colorful and u cant stop looking at every detail. I had the burger which was decilicous and my friend had the piri piri, grilled chicken with rice and raisins! It also tasted great. We had pavlova for desert which was one of te best non chocolaty dessert i have ever had. I also had breakast there a few months back. It was a nice typical english breakfast but i would recommend to go there for lunch. They gave more choices.

Found by chance on a rare visit to Reading. Apparently they have a few other branches and were obviously well known by the locals. 10 mins after we arrived at lunchtime on a Saturday, there was a queue out the door. This is an historic old building on the outside in a nice quiet spot off the main drag facing a churchyard. Plenty of tables outside. Inside it is all exposed brick and steel downstairs with high wooden shelves packed with jars of stuff to buy in one room, an open cooking area and the overall impression being of buzz and colour (the decor, the packaging of the things they sell and even the sample Bill’s cookbook on the table). Up a huge old staircase and there’s more seating with exposed floorboards.
Quick pitstop for a bacon sarnie and coffee, and Mrs B. had a beetroot salad thingy with mozarella and thyme. Bacon sandwich right up there with the best. It’s all in the details. Good bacon, lovely fresh bread and the bacon filled hot into the buttered bread. Yum. Very very good (though Cafe Coho in Brighton still my fave). I don’t like beetroot all that much but Mrs B’s lunch was delicious too (see the pic).
Service is good and staff seem happy which always helps.
First visit and very impressed. Funky, relaxed interior with happy staff, I had Bills Burger which was lush and my girlfriend had the fish finger sarnie which was even more yummy! The pink lemonade and vanilla float was the best bit though, highly recomend for a nice shopping lunch pit stop.

This cosy and comfortable restaurant is located a bit away from the bigger highstreet chains and the Oracle shopping mall. But it is definitly worth a visit. The decoration is very nice and done with love, the staff is welcoming and very helpful.
Also they had some issues to prepare our food in the usual time they offered free drinks as an apology for the long waiting and everything was very easy and not annoying at all. During the waiting we used the time to explore this nice restaurant, had a look at the enclosed produce store etc. When the food arrived it was nicely presented and very tasty. Portions are very generous, freshly made and perfectly seasoned.
Overall we spend and enjoyed a very nice evening in a relaxed atmosphere and a very much recommendable restaurant. We would go there every time again.
Excellent cafe/restaurant combined with produce store. Small and popular, so crowded, but lots of seats outside in fine weather. Probably the best burger in Reading. Lots of variety and lots of veggie (if you like that sort of thing). Generous 'snacks', so you need to be hungry. Great breakfasts all morning.
