I went there last week and absolutely loved the food; it's very tasty; and I was very well looked after by the waitress. Place is small and cozy, with a small shop downstairs and restaurant/cafe upstairs. I will definitely be eating there very often as I have just moved to Reading and miss having some Brazilian food from time to... More

I went here today with a friend. The restaurant was very busy so the service felt a bit slow. However, as we were not in a rush, this was actually perfect for us. The food was delicious and we will definitely come back

I visit Pau Brasil at least 2x a month. It a simple place, no frills place, but probably thats why I like it so much. Food is great, service is great. I highly recommend.

Authentic Brazilian food with a friendly vibe, Ivie has made a cosy and inviting place to get away from high street sameness. Whether you're here for a full on meal (try the feijoada), coffee and cake (custard tarts - yum!) you can't fail to be charmed by this place.

For a while we have been to visit this place, so much we heard about it and indeed worths everything told. This is not a big restaurant or business, but an independent business lead by a great lady. A home feel restaurant and grocery with typical food and goods and the food has a very nice home-made taste. Great food... More

Recommend this small cafe. We only had the smoothies which was so fresh and different. Really enjoyed my passion fruit smoothie. The lady who ran it was so gentle and polite. She encouraged us to come back to try their food which looks really inviting and good. Really recommend this nice little cafe to anyone bored of the high street... More

We popped in the late morning and had coffee and a couple pastries and it was delightful. The lady who runs the place is very friendly, service is fast and the coffee and snacks... More

If you want to support independent businesses in Reading, this is one of them! One of the best coffees in Reading that's for sure and the Custard Pastry is amazing! This is for people who love homemade food! Honest service and after all atmosphere. This is for the people who enjoy life and who enjoy simple things and love the... More
