My spouse and I decided to take our family there for breakfast this weekend. Oxford Exchange is beautifully appointed. Great bookstore, gifts, and decor. The food is very good, but the service leaves a bit to be desired. Our waiter tried to sell us on a tea that he states has ten times the caffeine of a cup of coffee, and decided to tell us he had already had three. That was apparent by the way his hands were trembling. After his introduction, it took him approximately 15-20 min to return to take our order. My spouse ordered an iced green tea while the rest of the table ordered various coffees. About 15 minutes later we see a young waiter walking from table to table asking guests "is this your tea?" He finally made it to our table...now it was watered down green tea as the ice has now melted. Our food arrives, which was very good, packed with great flavor. As we our finishing our food our coffee FINALLY arrived. Yes, we had coffee for dessert.
Despite the poor service, we will return to Oxford Exchange. It is a must see in Tampa because it is truly a beautiful design. It has a great selection of books, and a great selection of unique gifts.
