John Lewis, Broad Street, Reading, Berkshire, RG1 2BB
We’d made the mistake of watching episode of Friends where Rachel and Chandler eat a lot of cheesecake and so we were on the hunt for cheesecake and tea. It’s more difficult than you think to track down cheesecake in a cafe and we were running out of time before my brother had to catch a train so we headed for the most reliable of the department store cafes: The Place to Eat in John Lewis.
There was no cheesecake, but there was a selection of cakes, pastries, scones and gateaux, so we were happy. The only odd thing about John Lewis is that they are happy to give you pots of hot water and china cups and saucers and lovely cake, but they still insist in serving milk in the stupid tiny plastic pots!
