Independently Owned & locally operated

Jo and her team will look after you and your friends whilst you while away your time for a well deserved treat.

Just in case there's any confusion over the name!
Vivienne took over The Village Cafe and it still has that name on the outside, but inside you will find a complete change. A new floor was opened with lots more seating and you will see people wearing Chocolate Cafe aprons.

Our local Goring folk love the new setup and we welcome new visitors too.

Penultimate Hot Chocolate

We are famous for our chocolate for a reason and not just because we use melted down Belgium chocolate buttons. Here we have hot chocolate with whipped cream and flakes.


We came in for breakfast, was lovely but wish we realised the seating area upstairs as it was a bit chilly and busy to sit and chat. Was lovely tho, great looking cakes!

I was a big fan of the triple chocolate parfait. Sometimes I would even dream about it. However, I gave up dairy this year and now just have to remember it fondly. So I was thrilled when I discovered you did a vegan blueberry and chocolate cake (which is yummy). Thank you for making the transition to vegan easier for me. What is life without cake?

I am a regular customer of this busy friendly cafe. Have both eaten in and taken out. Food is very tasty and good value for money. Service is excellent and staff are friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend.

Jane Lindley

Fantastic service and quality of food, would strongly recommend.

Kayleigh Hines

Went here for the first time today. We'd been walking and had really muddy boots, said we'd sit outside with them but pooh poohed and told to come inside and enjoy the warmth (broom and mop and bucket would solve muddy footprints) so inside we went, lovely coffee, pasty, pannini and millionaires shortbread. Great service and warm welcome. Will be back again. Thanks.

The start of a morning walking I and my friends stopped here for breakfast. Was a cold sunny morning and the cafe was cozy and warm. The staff were very nice and polite and our food set us up for the long walk ahead. My poached eggs on toast with beans really hit the spot. Took home some chocolate cake for later too, which was amazing...lovely service, will definitely be back.

Susan Coggs

Thank you for making my girls so welcome today. My youngest has given you the envious title of “the best cafe in the world.” Must’ve been the awesome lunch we had today. Thanks again

Tom Robinson

Had a delicious "All day breakfast" at the café. I especially enjoyed the poached eggs as I find them difficult to cook - these were perfect. The staff are so friendly and welcoming, providing prompt and professional attention in a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Thank you.

Lovely Cafe in the centre of Goring shopping area. Conveniently located for cyclists, walkers and vistors to the village (which has 1 hour fee parking down a pathway off the High Street , near to the cafe). I live in Streatley and visit most days for a coffee, read of the paper, and occaisional selection from the fantastic cakes. I prefer the very large room upstairs, which must be double the area of the ground floor and kitchen. In the summer tI like the alternative of seating outside on the ground floor. Of particular impotance to me is the fact that it is dog friendly, as I now have a new dog. Overall for my needs I can't fault it or the service.
