  The Gorge Cafe, Reading
by easyoar

The Gorge is situated just across the road from the Caversham Bridge Hotel, and is widely acknowledged as being Readings best greasy spoon.

As such it has what you would expect, bacon, eggs, sausages and all the rest of the full fry up options.

If you go in mid morning at the weekend, you will find it full of rowers, studiously avoiding the grease and scoffing large amounts of toast to get the high carb intake needed row for 4 hours. There are a lot of regulars that seem to appear in there on a very reliable basis!

Favorite Dish: Toast, but then I am probably in the minority!

Price Comparison: least expensive
