Nice coffee and cake selection

Yeh a nice place to sit and mull - food looked good but we just had a coffee. Upstairs is great. Downstairs a bit echo-ing and if there are noisy people in (like lots of coffee shops) it can be quite deafening. Would return though.

Love dropping into the Jericho caff for a late Sunday morning full English breakfast. Decent value and good quality ingredients and food.

Having recently returned to Germany after a 6 month stint in Oxford, I find one of the things I miss the most is this lovely little cafe. The friendly staff and charming owners made my stay in Oxford a very enjoyable one. So much so that I never missed to start a day at The Jericho Cafe. The cafe is... More

Great neighbourly place for breakfasts, light lunches and coffee.  And good quality coffee -- a most appreciated rarity.  No culinary marvels here but a reliability of adequate quality.  My only complaint is their dreary and dry cakes.  They have them supplied by two local mommies with a part-time baking business. As much as I want to support working mommies everywhere,... More

I'm sorry you don't like our cakes. Julia Atkinson, local mummy and all round rather lovely person, has been running her very successful baking business 'Happy Cakes' for several years now and supplies many other local independent businesses as well as having her own cupcake trike in the City Centre. 'Happy cakes' do not supply all of our cakes, in... More

A beautifully located little cafe, with a fantastic interior. It has a wide range of options available, from cake to a full cooked breakfast. Really good, wholesome food. Full of lovely goodness. Bit expensive, but the quality of the food is really good. The downstairs area is nice and relaxed, with a lot of students choosing to take their coffee... More

Living locally as we do, The Jericho Cafe is one of our favourite haunts. A great all-rounder whether you're looking for a nicely cooked full English, (I would agree with previous reviewer that the poached eggs are to die for), your morning coffee and read of the newspaper or a pre-cinema meal. The staff are unfailingly friendly and polite and... More

We took our toddler for an afternoon hot chocolate and were quite disappointed by the selection of cakes given how great the reviews are... maybe our timing was bad bad everything just looked a little bit 'sad'. We ended up going for a cup cake and a brownie. The cup cake was dry and the brownie portion a tad stingy.... More

We're very sorry you didn't enjoy your cakes. We have had a couple of reports recently that the quality of the cakes, in particular the cupcakes, has declined somewhat of late and we are taking steps to ensure that future quality will not disappoint. We hope you'll try us again soon and be better impressed! More

Visited for cake and coffee. I wanted filter coffee and before I ordered I checked how long it had been standing on the hot plate....50 minutes and counting!!! I politely informed them that coffee kept for that long is undrinkable. The response was amazing, "we can't throw it away because it is a jug, but it doesn't matter because most... More

I'm not sure how you ascertained that the filter coffee had been put to brew 50 minutes earlier - did you ask the waitress or sit and watch? I'm intrigued. But you're absolutely right, coffee that has sat for too long doesn't usually taste very nice which is why we do usually chuck it and start again if the filter... More

Breakfast, lunch and supper - there is always well cooked and presented food on offer at the Jericho café. The vibe is relaxed and friendly. The best place to eat is upstairs - and especially for people watching - with some chairs available outside in Summer months but also good for coffee and computer below stairs! I like to bring...

I visited this cafe last night with a group of friends, about 20 of us in total. We had a very pleasant evening;, the food was lovely, reasonably priced, and served promptly. Only problem was that we enjoyed ourselves so much that we could have stayed all night! Unfortunately they close at 9pm so we had to drag ourselves homewards... More

We're really glad you enjoyed your evening out at the cafe - your party certainly seemed to be having a good time! For future reference, we are open a little later on Fridays and Saturdays - till 10pm - and always allow a little extra 'drinking up' time for lingering folk. Hope to see you again soon. More
