Description: Café YOLK offers a wide range of Breakfasts, Omelettes, Pancakes, Waffles, Burgers, Sandwiches, Sides, Teas, Coffees, Soft drinks and Smoothies.Born from Alexandra's passion for food, the concept for Café YOLK was developed in 2012. Alex and husband Sunny decided the people of east Reading deserved more choice and a good value eatery to enjoy when venturing out for food. The Erleigh Road location was chosen for it's great position and Sunny’s local community ties and the journey began – now Café YOLK offers a stylish and affordable alternative to the usual fare on offer in the area, from breakfasts to burgers, waffles to pancakes, coffees and smoothies Café YOLK provides a cut above when it comes to taste in a chilled out atmosphere with service to make you smile.

“Best place to eat in Reading!”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

If you're around Reading, you really need to visit this place! My breakfast was cooked to absolute perfection, staff are warm and lovely, atmosphere is great and the service is so quick! Cafe yolk is definitely the BEST place to eat in Reading. I'm looking forward to coming back and trying the rest of the menu :) Thank you Cafe Yolk and see you soon!

“The Mexican Omelet is inspired”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Lovely place, chilled friendly service. Welcoming staff make it a home from home, without the washing up!
Have tried most of the menu, delicious burgers, fantastic breakfasts - but my favourite, and first love, is the Mexican omelette !!! ;)

“Superb”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Fantastic job done here, lovely food, really done the place up nicely, friendly staff. Only complaint is that I have order fried eggs on five different occasions asking them repeatedly to be solid, only once did I not have to send back. But other than that perfect. One of my favourite places in Reading.

“I think we are missing something.”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

We recently visited this establishment and are at a loss to see how it occupies the top spot. The young lady who served us was very pleasent but when i ordered a flat white she did not realy know what i was talking about. The place is clean and the food selection good but the place has high levels of ambient noise, sounds like you are in a large hall. This did not make it a restful experience.

“Really lovely. A little bit of a trek from the centre.”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Had a lovely meal here with my Danish Girlfriend, because I wanted her to experience a full English breakfast!! The food was yummy, every part of the meal was great, and the price was very reasonable. We afterwards had a cup of coffee and a cake, and since the Filter Coffee machine was acting up, we were given an Americano for the same price. Very polite staff.

Only downside (which is of course no fault of the restaurant) is that you have to walk about 25-30 minutes from the centre of Reading to get there. I think it was worth it, but depends if you have time or not!!
