Good morning and welcome to a brand new week!

This week on IR, we’ll be looking at how you can shake up your week to break the working-from-home monotony that so many of us are in the midst of. The good news is, we still have heaps of wonderful indie businesses ready and waiting to help make our week extra special. The reality-check is that they need your support more than ever.

So today, why don’t you drag your bottom off your chair and away from the laptop screen and treat yourself to a coffee. A good one. You know, like you used to do when you didn’t work at home. If you live in walking distance of your favourite indie coffee shop, you can combine some of your daily exercise with a delicious, warming caffeine hit. Plus, you will genuinely make the day of the person serving you.

Here are some places you could try, but I really recommend popping in to your favourite indie coffee house because they all need us.

Town Centre

Anonymous Coffee


Lincoln Coffee House




Kennet Island

Fidget & Bob

Tilehurst / Calcot

Dee Caf

The Avenue Deli



The Collective




The above is most certainly not an exhaustive list of indies serving delicious coffee in Reading, it’s purely there to provide a little inspiration. Why not share a picture of you with your cuppa and tag IR on Twitter or Insta?
