This has to be one of the best cafes in Oxford. Great coffee and cakes. Good choice of fresh salads and wine by the glass. Staff are friendly and helpful.

An oasis of calm in the tourist madness that is modern day Oxford! Great coffee and hot chocolate and tasty cakes. Waiters unphased by requests for soya milk too.

In the Modern Art Gallery you'll find this pleasant, airy and mostly quiet lunchtime cafe. Food all made on site and fresh. Inventive menu. Not a wide range of choice but that keeps things simple. Great salads, soups or toasted samdwich. This cafe is a...More
