The kind of place that once you discover you hope remains largely undiscovered. Perfect little hideaway from the usually rammed Oxford streets and serving some of, if not, the best coffee in the city. Friendly staff and a great atmosphere are icings on a pretty perfect cake.

Unquestionably one of the best coffee houses if not the best coffee house in Oxford. The staff are extremely friendly and informative and always happy to answer any questions for us coffee novices.

They always have a great coffee selection on the go with different coffees being made available from different roasteries, but love the fact that they champion a local coffee supplier as their house coffee blend which I must say is probably one of the best coffees I have had the pleasure to drink and certainly the best flat white you will get in Oxford.

I cannot forget to mention the toasted banana bread which is just too good to mention.

So all in all a cracking this gem in the heart of the city.

I really like the location of Zappi's inside a bike shop. The interior is fresh and clean with nice staff and a good atmosphere. The toasties and hot chocolate are lovely! Love the tables by the window!

Had a slow puncture and headed to Bike Zone to get it checked. Was pleasantly surprised to find out about the free coffee while waiting for the express puncture repair. To top it off, it was one of the best cappuccino I've ever had!

Delicious coffee and Bara Brith, and not a chain in site! The bike memorabilia kept my husband entertained in this relaxed and bright café while I read. The staff were laid back and we felt welcome to chill for as long as we liked. We visited twice during our stay and will be back!
