“Lovely for a weekday lunch....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

It had been a while since I had last visited The Jericho Cafe and I was very happy that my family and I decided to stop by last week for a quick bite. The menu is pretty simple, the food tasty and well priced and the atmosphere was perfect. We will be back again soon!

“Good food away from city bustle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Good food, good prices, off the beaten path in Jericho section of Oxford. Food is Mediterranean-English. Nice portions & enjoyable food, but not spectacular. A good non-touristy place to have a meal.

“Sound a trumpet for the Jericho!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

I've been going to the Jericho Cafe for at least six years, and it's gone from strength to strength. It's lively, friendly, and the food is fresh, well-cooked and plentiful. The French "patron" exudes Gallic charm, the coffee is hot and strong, and the breakfasts fully deserve their second-in-Britain award. Visiting academics often lodge with us, and always use the Jericho when they're in Oxford -one commented that the Cafe was an important part of the local scene.Great new loos, too. Veronica, London

“Excellent Place to eat in Oxford”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

I like to explore and find new places to eat, so it is a rarity that I regularly visit the same cafe. Yet the Jericho Cafe is just such a place!
I find the atmosphere here just great and the range of food is fantastic and not badly priced either (but remember this is Oxford where things are generally well overpriced).
The service is very friendly and prompt. I find it a great place to go for breakfast and the lunchtime has a busy but lively atmosphere.
I like the fact that the food is freshly made rather than re-heated or pre-cooked ready meals.

“Terrible and over-priced food. Waste of prime real estate”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

This place need a huge make-over and change of menu. Paying nearly 10 quid for microwaved food offends sensibilities. This is prime real estate and should belong to someone who can run this better. Oxford deserves better.
