On the morning of the Cowley Road Carnival, I felt in danger of missing the street procession due to the length of time it took to - no doubt - "lovingly" prepare with artisan style, a toasted sandwich, here. (Here, with no particularly large number...More

This is a fantastic addition to the city. The coffee was good and its a chilled atmosphere where you can chat or do some light work. Just get some chess sets to match your theme and you'll get the full marks.

I'm a bit of a coffee snob but this place ticked all the right boxes. Beans freshly ground, coffee was hot and strong and full of flavour. The cakes looked fantastic too but sadly we'd just had breakfast! Worth a trip.

Wannabes and just-caught-up-with-the-hipsters mix with people who've reluctantly finally got an iPhone in this now mainstream coffee shop. The staff are genuinely lovely and the toasted banana bread a must. Just coffee and snacks, nice place to rendez-vous.
