Everything they do seemed to have an eye on quality and doing things properly. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast, delicious coffee, amazing breakfast roll, superb granola etc could not fault it. If you want cheap and fast then this is not the place for you....More

I had the best chai latte in my life at this Gail's (and I've had a lot). It was hard to choose from the many sweet and savoury items but I had a brownie "bite" and it was delicious. They do tiny versions of sweets,...More

Possibly my favourite hangout in Oxford is Gail's Bakery Cafe. It's close by but off of the main street, along Little Clarendon and makes all of its goodies in-house. I visited a few times for my lattes and baked goods. The butter fried blueberry pancakes...More

Another great lunch at Gail's - I've finally tried the new menu and sauted mushrooms are absolutely delicious (as is everything else). The store is rather busy, so ordering may be a challenge and you may have to wait for your food, but it's definitely...More

Great to hear. Thank you for the feedback.

Whilst the food is good here, as are the coffees, it is definitely overpriced - £3 for a fairly standard cappuccino is not ok! Yoghurt and granola is yummy though.

Indoor seating space is very limited creating an unpleasantly crammed feeling to the cafe; the food offer looks interesting but fails to please. At a recent lunch, the ciabatta with roasted veg was dry, chewy and largely devoid of roasted veg. Prices are excessive for...More
