This is slightly more expensive than the standard Debenhams cafe (located on the top floor neartrhe toilets) and it is located right next to the escalator on the first floor but the tea is very nice (proper teal leaves in a pot). Costs £2.80 though.

Was not impressed. Most of the tables were full of rubbish left over from other customers. The price paid for a Coke and Water was expensive.

I had a few cappuccinos here, during my Oxford visit. Were friendly service and excellent cakes available here. A good place to have a drink while shopping at Debenhams!!!

This cafe is located in Debenhams, which makes it lose some degree of charm. Nonetheless, it offers a good selection of cakes and some respite when you've been busy shopping.

If you ever go to Vienna these sort of places are everywhere. Sadly few and far between in the U.K. So when you get the chance hurl yourself at it. Cakes (or however they/you describe them) are the thing, and the coffee. Take other things...More

The pastries, with a distinct French flavour, are mouth watering to look at, especially the fruit tarts and eclairs. They are, of course, delicious. I particularly like the Belgian apple tarts. Yum!
