The Best Places in Reading for Your Morning Pick Me Up

Here at QV Offices we are passionate about our coffee, from cappuccinos to espressos, and macchiatos to mochas. We love them all! So, to celebrate International Coffee Day we've picked our favourite coffee shops in Reading town centre.

Tamp Culture Coffee

This authentic cart of joy has been voted by the public as Reading's best coffee shop. Tamp offers a truly unique experience, with its exceptional coffee, trendy layout and passionate staff. Their beans are carefully selected and are roasted in-house, in small batches to get the very best flavoured blend. There is nothing tastier than a freshly brewed Tamp coffee. Try it for yourself!
Must have: flat white
Location: 3 Gun St


We have to admit, this independent gluten-free coffee shop is our guilty pleasure! On arrival, you will notice how pretty and pink the place is, but blokes don't let this put you off! It's our favourite place in Reading for coffee and cake. Their coffee beans are locally roasted in Winchester by a speciality micro roaster. The coffee is a medium, sweet and aromatic blend. To accompany your coffee you just have to try their scrumptious gluten-free bakes!
Must have: cappuccino
Location: 26 Cross Street

My Kitchen

Just two doors down is a fantastic independent coffee shop that sources all of its produce locally. The coffee is a medium blend with a rich after-taste of cocoa. At My Kitchen you really feel a sense of community. You will always be greeted by friendly and welcoming staff that are keen to give you a superb experience. This cafè also supplies the best panini in Reading town centre, so if you've forgot to bring lunch, you know where to go.
Must have: cafè latte
Location: 29 Queen Victoria Street

Manhattan Coffee Club

If you want nothing more than a delicious filter coffee we recommend going to Manhattan Coffee Club. It might surprise you that this coffee house is independent, given its modern décor and established branding, which makes it feel more like a fashionable chain. Manhattan Coffee Club is all about making high quality, ethical coffee, whilst supporting farming communities. 
Must have: filter coffee
Location: U6 Upper Level, The Oracle


Nextdoor to our offices we have a Starbucks, we kid you not! As many of our office clients have experienced, this convenient coffee shop will tempt you indoor everyday. You are probably aware that Starbucks have a huge variety of coffee roasts, sourced from all around the world, from Guatemala Antigua to Columbia. Their standard coffee is a soft and flavoursome blonde roast.
Must have: iced caramel macchiato
Location: 21 Queen Victoria Street
