2-3 Butter Market, Reading, RG1 2DP 0118 957 3708
We ran out of milk and bread the night before so breakfast was looking bleak. Hey, we thought, it’s Sunday, let’s go into town and have brunch. Little did we know it was the Reading Half Marathon and that having brunch would be easier said than done. We got to town and were faced with a wall of people watching a steady flow of running people. I have the greatest respect for people who participate in events like this, but it was Sunday, the clocks had changed, we hadn’t had any tea and I was hungry. We looked and we walked along the runners’ route and there was no gap to be seen. R tried to persuade me that we should run across the road and I refused, it was too intrusive and was rude. Half an hour later when we still hadn’t managed to cross the road I felt differently and we joined a group of people standing wistfully at a pedestrian crossing and took our chance. We made it across and headed to Munchees.
We hadn’t been to Munchees before but felt that they would be the place to go for a traditional fry up. It was. R had the Munchees breakfast and I had the brunch breakfast. Both were good.
Teapot? Yes, a big metal one.
Leaf tea? Usual unidentified teabag.
Milk jug? Yes.
Price? A bargin 95p each for the tea, £4.50 for brunch breakfast, £5.55 for the Munchees breakfast.
Cake? No, but plenty of deserts.
Go again? Only when I need a fry up.
