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

Delicious vegetarian breakfast with proper soda bread toast. The poached eggs were perfect. Plenty of room to sit on a Sunday morning in their room downstairs. Nice clean toilet (that's important!) and friendly waiter. Prices reasonable. Coffee was pretty good too.

Had the veggie breakfast and was ill for the next 3 days. I should have just returned the food as it did not taste good at all. But was in a rush. Other than that the atmosphere was rather bleak. I wont be returning.

I'm sorry you were taken I'll recently. It is highly unlikely that your food poisoning, if indeed it were food poisoning, were as a result of eating a veggie breakfast in our cafe, however. For one thing, food poisoning is nearly always as a result of eating contaminated meat or dairy produce and symptoms occur 8-48 hours after infection, typically... More

Best breakfast in Oxford! Perfectly poached eggs, nicely cooked bacon and really tasty sourdough toast thrown in for good measure. The full english is fantastic value, which is why this place is always rammed. The only down side is they need more tables.

Enjoyed breakfast, but it is not my favourite place for coffee. It was a bit weak and none descript I had a bacon roll, the bacon was very nicely cooked and was served with a huge floury bap. Unfortunately it was not buttered which made it a touch dry. Overall nice atmosphere.

Hello, we don't butter the bacon baps as 'default' as most people seem to prefer them unbuttered. We are very happy to apply butter on request though - let us know next time and we'll do it for you, or just stick a couple of pats of butter on the plate. We have recently changed our coffee beans and cup... More

Food is pretty good (nothing special but fine), chocolate flapjacks are special - yummy. Best thing is the Oxford atmosphere - cosy and chatty. Pleasant staff and building.

I was today asked to leave the Jericho cafe (the downstairs floor) due to increased demand for tables, despite the fact that there were three free tables around me. I live in the Jericho neighbourhood and intend to live here for many years to come, seeing that I have a permanent job in the area. I am a regular customer,... More

Thank you for sharing this topic on a public forum - we welcome the opportunity to put across our point of view too! Firstly, to say that you were 'kicked out' is grossly misleading. My exact words to you yesterday (1.30pm on a Sunday) afternoon were 'I'm very sorry, but I'm afraid we are going to need this table in... More

Came here for coffee and a little bite and had a great time. We sat close to the entrance but there is seating space available on the floor below as well. That makes the total restaurant space fairly decent. The place is not too noisy so if you are looking to find a cafe which is not thronging with tourists,... More

My student son and I had elevenses here recently on a wet Saturday morning. The service (at the counter) was good - polite and expeditious - and the coffee, tea, and cakes were excellent. The accommodation is on two levels - ground floor and basement - and is comfortable, with a pleasing ambience. The restaurant is out of the city-centre... More

The cafe may seem small, but there's lots of seats in the well lit lower level. I had lunch here recently, and the food was lovely and fresh. If you can, try one of their flapjacks (a moist, oatmeal type granola bar) with a cup of tea. Lovely!
