Palmer Park's popular cage will be reopened at the beginning of next year under the leadership of Tutu Melaku.


A new tenant for the empty Lodge Cafe in Palmer Park in the East Park emerged.

Tutuacaks Ethiopian Table will take over the former Chalkboard Café, which was closed in 2017.

The property is located near the park playground on the edge of Wokingham Road and will be managed by the award-winning Tutu Melaku.

Sarah Hacker, Council Member Sarah Hacker, chief adviser on Culture, Heritage and Recreation, said: er Following the process of allowing our community earlier this year, we found a fantastic new tenant for Palmer Café.

Em Tutu is famous for its delicious Ethiopian dishes and I can't wait to visit the cafe when it's reopened at the beginning of 2019.

"I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the realization of this. The new cafeteria will be of great benefit to the local community."

Council officials are currently working to reinstate the building and predict that the new café will open as soon as possible in the new year.

After growing up in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia in 1991, Melaku moved to Reading.

His food has won a number of awards including the Innovative Business Award in London's Reading Award, London of the Year, from the Habesha Business Association, an organization that recognizes excellence in the Ethiopian business of Britain. Beautiful lunch as the 2013 Retail Awards winner.

The menu offers a range of meat and vegetarian stew presented by Ethiopian traditional pancake.

She added: l I am excited that the Reading Borough Council has given me this opportunity to expand my Ethiopian Desk to this wonderful new venue in Palmer Park Café.

"I look forward to inviting my new and old customers to my beautiful venue where I will offer hot drinks and snacks as well as my Ethiopian cuisine."

The first pavilion refreshment room was opened in 1891 and the cafe still has the original kitchen and fireplace features.

The Council launched a community executive process in early 2018.
