My husband and I have started using this coffee house regularly. Damn, now everyone will know about it. Lovely coffee - my only quibble is that it could be a bit hotter - but my husband says that's how it's meant to be.

I've been coming here regularly since the cafe opened in 2011. Buzzing atmosphere and friendly service. What more do you want?

We live centrally in Oxford and only frequent Zappi's or The Missing Bean for the best coffee in the city. Wonderful staff and amazing quality coffee. First class cappuccino"s along with a small but good quality and relevant snack menu.

Zappi's bike cafe is an absolute treat. They serve amazing coffee, the staff are really friendly and know all the regulars' names and they are bike friendly. It's a nice mix of people chatting, working on their laptops and people coming in wearing full road bike gear for a drink after a ride. I love it because it's different, quirky and it works. If you love your coffee give it a try.

This cafe was by far the best I found on a recent overnight trip to Oxford. The coffee was excellent, the service was friendly and the cafe itself was light and airy. I also tried their toasted banana bread, which was delicious. There were not endless options, but then it was clear that they make their cakes in house (we saw some brownies going into the oven), and the prices were very reasonable for the quality of what was on offer. It is a deservedly popular spot, and therefore quite difficult to get a seat, but I really cannot recommend this place highly enough.
