This place has enough variety to satisfy anyone. Pastries, breads, and the best coffee in town. I spent a week in Oxford and tried every shop I came upon. Missing Bean hands down the best, and the friendliest. Small and crowded yes, but get it...More

I have to say I think I had my best cup of coffee in Oxford at the Missing Bean. Based only on my one visit it may be suffering under it's own popularity. It was very crowded with only a single seat available at the...More

Wet and windy outside, but friendly and cosy inside. Service was swift and good. Only gave an average for food as there isn't an option for not having any! I would visit again.

We love going to the Missing Bean for coffee; it's good value for both food and drink, the coffee is aromatic and strong and the views onto Turl Street can't be beaten. Love it!

A lovely coffee place with good Australian style roasting. It is almost always busy with few spare tables which is why I don't see how they can still be charging a 30p card charge for transactions below £5. This used to be the case in...More

This is a very overrated cafe. The coffee was average (I've had better elsewhere in Oxford) which was disappointing because my friend had said how good it was. Food not great. If you can find a seat you're lucky.

A friendly spot on a busy street, the coffee here is very good, just the right place to take a break on a busy day

I got coffee here several times while visiting Lincoln College. It's the only coffee bar next to three colleges and a popular spot. Get there at 10 am opening as it fills up fast! My sister who was studying at Lincoln said everyone goes to...More
