I can’t figure out what ‘Zer’ means. Does it mean anything? Maybe it doesn’t, but then again maybe it does and I just don’t get it. Whether it means something or not it still sells tea and that’s all we’re concerned with here. I like Cafe Zer because it’s the only cafe in the area (as far as I know, if you know of another one please let me know!) and also because it opens at 8am. I’ve stuck it on the map so you can see where it is.
Cafe Zer is warm and cheerful. It has a big window overlooking the road and lots of people coming in to eat breakfast. There are red and white checked plastic table cloths and 4 versions of fried breakfast on the menu. At 8am on a cold misty morning in October it was very welcoming. BBC Radio Berkshire plays constantly and there are newspapers as well so even if you’re by yourself you feel quite at home. They bring your order to your table, which didn’t seem like anything until I realised all the other cafes I have reviewed so far didn’t do this. I really like this cafe, it’s not got the best tea and there’s no cake – but it’s open and warm and it exists. It’s good enough for me.
Leaf tea? No idea. The tea came ready made in a mug.
Milk jug? No, but as the tea came with milk in I’m guessing it was fresh milk.
Price? £3 for two teas and a Cafe Latte.
Cake? Danish pastries and KitKats, but no cake.
Go again? Yes.
