As everyone says, this is a coffee house with a laid-back friendly vibe. Not Starbucks (also in town) which is a plus. They serve pastries (including gluten-free) and, if memory serves, lunchy type foods. Coffee is very good; I haven't tried their triple pumpkin rum raisin chile pepper macchiato or anything other than a latte, but if you're into those... More

Great alternative to Starbucks, and has room to study or visit with friends, and have coffee or tea.

Do you like funked-out college town coffeehouses? Then this place is for you. The coffee is good, and there is usually a selection of pastries to eat, but mainly you hang out in this place to be part of the intellectual college atmosphere. Everyone has their digital device on the wi-fi, checking their email or finishing a paper. Oxford in... More

Excellent coffee, ice tea and fruit smoothies. Lots of seating indoors, plush sofas and chairs in addition to tables. Outside seating also. Inside make sure to look up. The ceiling is gorgeous. Although painted black you can see the craftmsnship detail in the molding and plaster sculpted ceiling.

Kofenya is a local coffee shop that creates a sense of community in this small college town. There is a limited selection of food available as well.

I went here all of the time as a student at Miami University (2007-2011). Now that I am an alum, I must come here. The atmosphere is amazing and is everything that an independent coffee shop should be. It has character unlike other places that are chains. What I recommend: hot chai latte, iced chai latte, and the hot apple... More

This is my favorite place in Oxford. It's a hopping independent coffee shop (with lots of other hot drinks and baked goods). There are lots of places to sit and work, and the wifi is free and works well. The folks are nice, and the atmosphere is conducive to working or chatting with friends. In short, this is my first...

It's a coffee shop with baked items and not a whole lot else to consume, but that is what attracts a lot of people to this street-corner location in uptown Oxford. Every other table or sofa is occupied by people who obviously intended to meet there for conversation, whether business or pleasure. On the perimeter, especially on the high stools... More
