I live in the neighbourhood and have been coming here for years. The breakfasts and baked goods are fantastic. Lunches are fresh and imaginative. Everyone who works here is friendly and efficient.

Sadly, the reason we don't serve tea in pots, is that we simply don't have the space to stock them. As I'm sure you've seen, we cram a lot in to a pretty tight space behind the counter and we just don't have anywhere we could conceivably put teapots. To be honest, the growth of the coffee industry in the... More

What a great find! Cool, unique feel. Gentle and attentive staff team. Fresh produce used used for our lovely brunch. Tasty coffee and cakes. The sort of place you could stay for hours! Away from the hectic busy streets of the city centre of Oxford.

Great place for breakfast, lunch or just a cup of tea or coffee. Well worth the short walk out of central Oxford.

We have been visiting the Jericho Cafe for years. We cruise along the Oxford Canal, Moor up by the footbridge in Canal Street walk up the road to Walton Street and get the outside view of the cafe as in the photo. Yes, it is NOT the Randolph interior, but it is the people that make it such an interesting... More

Always to a good standard, this independent cafe is usually busy with a steady stream of students and locals. There is wifi and news papers, fresh cakes and some great food, which has daily specials covering both veggies and meat eaters. Plenty of space downstairs if its looking busy when you look in the window, so don't be put off.... More

Go here for a very yummy, well-priced breakfast. Great food. Great service. Quickly turned around. What more could you need?

We had a few minutes before our bike tour started so we thought we'd get a coffee. Everything looked so good we ended up with a full English breakfast! Very local...off the tourist track. Definitely a place I would go to everyday if I were a local (wish).

Our meal last night was extremely disappointing. We ordered two lamb feta and mint burgers, and received an undercooked flat grey burger in half a pitta bread, a small portion of chips and a mouthful of salad, each for just under £10. When we complained we were told that the burgers are always microwaved. The burgers returned with a little... More

I'm so sorry that your meal on Tuesday evening did not come up to our usual standard. It's not just the customers who expect more from our cafe - we do too and I will most certainly be looking into this incident. Rest assured though, our burgers are most definitely NOT cooked in the microwave. Your meal on Tuesday evening... More

This place looks very nice inside and out and was very busy when we visited. my wife and I both had coffee and a different cake each, We were lucky enough to get one of the tables outside the front. My lasting memory though is of the cake. Not the taste just the experience of getting it! The older lady... More

Oh dear, I'm sorry about that. Occasionally when we reach the end of one of the cakes, the last slice looks a bit small so staff will normally claim this slice as their own and helpfully eat it.. If a customer orders the last slice of any particular cake before we've had a chance to snaffle it, however, we sometimes... More

Regularly tip up here when I'm in Oxford ... Can get a quick cafe meal, or linger longer over a drink in the friendly, informal atmosphere ... Veggies well catered for, nice wine, interesting menu in the lovely Walton Street environment ...
