Joy, passion, crafted.
Nibsy's is tucked away on Cross Street, just a stone's throw from busy Broad Street and first opened in September 2014.
We're Reading's first coffee shop to provide exclusively gluten-free food, where everything is hand made right here in our little kitchen and served by our friendly team. The business was set up by Naomi Lowe who has a gluten-intolerance and wanted to create a coffee shop where everything was free from gluten.
For now, our selection of sweet treats and savoury options is a bit smaller than it used to be, while we find our feet again.
As well as being a lovely place for you to pop in for your favourite hot drink and treat, we can also make whole cakes for special occasions. We're very proud to also offer gorgeous afternoon teas, either to eat in or take-away. We can cater for most allergies, and we usually need just few days notice. And everything is made right here, in Reading.
If you're not local enough to be able to pop in and see us, we do have a DIY gluten-free and vegan donut kit that is sent nationwide. With the kit you can make your very own replica of our best selling donuts, in the comfort of your own home, when you like. Check out the donut tab for more info.
Naomi is also working on writing a recipe book, which should be ready sometime in 2021 and will include many of the sweet and savoury things made at the coffee shop over the years. The recipes are tried and tested, and we believe the book will be a thing of joy! To keep up with the latest news on when it will be available you can follow us on social media.
We are so grateful for the support from all our wonderful customers and we absolutely love being a part of Reading.
We hope you get chance to drop in soon.
