Some friends arranged to meet me here for a coffee and bite. How can I not have been here before? It's a great place with quite a lot of space and a cosy 'village feel' atmosphere. The staff were friendly and welcoming and gave great service with a smile. There was a pile of newspapers to browse through if you... More

I called in to the Jericho Cafe sort of 'between meals' as I'd just arrived in Oxford and it was too early for dinner but I was a bit hungry. I loved the atmosphere in this place ... seemed like lots of 'regulars' meeting up and chatting in a friendly way over tea and coffee. Some solo people sitting quite... More

The orange and ginger polenta cake is good isn't it? Nice and moist is what we like. Thank you very much for your kind review, we hope to see you again soon. More

Brilliant, we go back time and again! It's colourful and packed full of interesting people on a Sunday morning for brunch.

I really like the Jericho Cafe. The staff are friendly (pretty, too!), the location's ideal, the cakes are delicious, and the prices are generally quite good. I wouldn't bother with anything more than tea or coffee, though; as several reviewers have commented, their breakfast, lunch, and dinner fare really isn't great value. Just grab a coffee and people-watch!

We are from Melbourne Australia and were looking for somewhere with good food and coffee. Maybe we have high standards, but I would say the coffee was very average, weak and milky. Meals were extremely basic and spartan - especially for the price. I ordered beans on toast with a 'free range' poached egg and Cumberland sausage. Maybe I am... More

Nope, not off the mark at all - our baked beans are canned, because that's the way the vast majority of our customers like them! We did try the home-made variety for a while, but switched back to Heinz about 18 months ago after due consideration of our customers' feedback. I guess you can't please everybody.. And yes, I would... More

I enjoy spending time in Jericho Café. They have a great selection of cakes and the menu is small but has some good options for lunch or a small dinner. I've enjoyed their aubergine parmigiana and their sausage flatbread. It's a nice work environment, but they prefer to not have laptops upstairs (there is a downstairs area) and there are... More

So pleased you enjoy the time you spend at the cafe. We do ask customers who are going to work for long periods to sit downstairs, especially during the busy lunchtime period, so that our many elderly customers and parents with buggies can find a spot to sit! Hope to see you again soon. More

This cafe is my first choice for breakfast, brunch or lunch in Jericho. The food is always of a great standard with decent size portions, but try to save room for one of the delicious cakes! Prices are reasonable too. The upstairs and outside are lovely but often very crowded due to it's popularity. There is additional seating downstairs. The... More

We came here based on a review from Trip Advisor. I ordered the "Bacon & Avocado Salad" for £8.95 (over $15 USD). I had to do some digging to find any bacon OR avocado in this rather small salad. I thought there was no avocado at all, but then my friend spotted a tiny piece about the size of a... More

I strongly suspect it is our chef's brain which is pea-sized, rather than the avocado :-) We put half a large avocado in each salad, along with the baby gem lettuce, tomato, cucumber, croutons, crispy bacon, parmesan shavings and a poached free-range egg. Except that one of our chefs has been known to forget to put in the avocado entirely..... More

We went to the Jericho Cafe every morning for breakfast, when we stayed locally. The food was very good, the service quick and the atmosphere was congenial. On a fine day, you can sit outside, too.

Food always looks delicious but I mainly have tea. Coffee occasionally too weak even for me. Location is in the middle of Jericho and open late (9ish) Very clean

Watch this space - we're changing our cup sizes in the next couple of weeks and will be offering a regular and a large size. Or you could always try our flat white, that's a stronger coffee.. We'll get it right next time! More
