The food served here is average and expensive for what it is. Service is good. I have been to different branches if this venue and I would now only order coffee & cake

“Left without a cake!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

Stood waiting for ten minutes - no acknowledgment from staff members. Approached a female waitress and politely asked if I could just get one cake to take away - waitress responded by saying that she was 'busy with other things right now'. Left the patisserie without a cake and feeling bemused by the attitude of the staff member. Yes they were busy but a polite acknowledgment would have sufficed as opposed to the tone received. Will not be going back sadly as the cakes looked delicious.

“Delightful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

Delightful little patisserie in heart of Oxford. Super pot of Earl Grey Tea - no tea bags! And a delicious Belgian Apple tart, slightly warmed. A really nice and unusual place. Loved it.

“Wide choice, good quality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

A wide choice of delicious-looking pastries. Not my thing, but my companions enjoyed them. I had a scone, which was fine. The coffee was ok. Service was ok.
