Massive portion, brimming with olives and a really tasty sauce every time I come back to the cafe the food is superb, sometimes there is a small wait but for the quality of the food that is a small price to pay.

Very good coffee and tempting cakes served in this peaceful place just off the bustling Cowley Rd. A great place to either be alone or meet up with friends. It is perfect for Garden Cafe Runners after our Wednesday morning run!

Escape the stresses and strains of life at the Restore cafe. I love coming to this place. A little oasis away from the world despite being next to one of Oxford's busiest roads. Staff friendly, food good. Parking very limited. Better off walking. Peace and quiet needed? You're in the right place.

To die for. Bursting with flavours that have been grown at Restore's Fleetmeadow Project at Didcot. What a dish!

Their melon, lime and Cucumber iced cooler does exactly what it says on the tin! It was a life-saver in 33 degree heat. The garden is a real oasis with cool shade and a lush lawn or a couple of shaded areas where kids can play safely in the willow dome or the gazebo.

This was my second visit to the Garden Cafe. Today I spent time here catching up on some work, having lunch and then having a business meeting. The food is excellent, especially the cake, and the coffee hits the spot which is important to me because I am a bit of a coffee snob. There are two reasons for me... More
