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.

Lovely unique cafe. I've been here several times for breakfast and lunch and always tried something different from the menu. Never have I been disappointed! I have also taken several different friends and they also have loved it as much as I have. Reasonable prices, I would recommend.

Lovely place to come for breakfast when your in the area. It's fairly small inside, but there is some outdoor seating if the weather is nice. Their scrambled egg is by far the best I've ever tasted before - absolutely delicious. Friendly staff and a nice atmosphere, would definitely recommend

After checking a place for breakfast we found the café Yolk on TripAdvisor with loads of great comments. So we go.
The place is nice, small Manhattan café style, with a terrace for beautiful morning (it was pouring rain for us) and there is an excellent service.
Coffee was really good.
With all of that and knowing other great places for breakfast I was disappointed by the waffle.
In such ace I would have expect waffle to be fresh made. No! They are waffle bought in supermarket (with sugar bite inside).
This was a big down side to me.

Overall, it is a nice place to have breakfast, they can considerably improve by making fresh sautéed potatoes and waffles.

Just wanted to add to the great reviews. Have eaten here many times and there's a reason it's always busy and not just with students. Polite staff, good coffee and great bacon pancakes. They've set the bar.

came here for the first time this weekend and was extremely surprised at the quality of the food and coffee on offer here and the very reasonable price was a bonus. I ordered the Canadian breakfast, a doubled up fry up with a side of pancakes... it was amazing, the only complaint to be made is that i may have gone up a couple of jean sizes but it was definitely worth it. Cafe yolk is now my new favorite spot in Reading I would recommend to anyone.
