Been there a couple of times at deferent times around the week and found it good at every visit. Been there for breakfast, dinner, and for drinks too. ①reakfast is good, the drinks are decent without being great, and the waitresses are good looking without being sexy. Attaching a couple of photo's of the place and the food- its bigger... More

Went in for breasfast this morning and walked out without one. When it was my turn to be served the waitress walked out from behind the counter and went downstairs without any acknowledgment, she did not say a word The management need to invest in some customer service training or some polite and friendly staff

I'm sorry the waitress concerned did not tell you where she was going. I expect she was responding to the kitchen buzzer to take food out. On busy weekend shifts it does occasionally happen that the counter is left un manned whilst staff take food out or clear tables and wash up. Very rarely for more than a moment or... More

Cool place to 'hang out'! Great for informal meetings, getting homework done, and generally watching the 'world' go by!

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

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
