I can only agree with other reviews - the coffee is much better than 'chain' coffee shops, the cakes are TRULY home-made and delicious, and the service is unfailingly polite, friendly and efficient.
If you are on a train journey through Reading, or you are in Reading town centre, you really should give it a try. Ignore the obvious choices of Boots, West Cornwall Pasties and Costa that flank them and support independent, quality small business by using Tutti Frutti.
I'm not an ice cream fan, but my wife and son tell me it is superb.
I hope that when the new revamped Reading station opens in 2014 this place goes from strength to strength.
