Don't miss out on this venue, delicious teas (we had fresh ginger and lemon, superb) and the best tasting coffee I bought in Oxford over two days.
The food is delightful, as are the cakes either to follow it as an afternoon snack.
The inside is beautiful and the patio area looks out over Radcliffe Camera.
Altogether a worthwhile and very reasonably priced experience.

This cafe is in a mediaeval ecclesiastical vault with the original stone ceiling still visible. The food and coffee is very nice, (try the rarebit) but as it’s Oxford it’s a little pricey.

I have been here several times now and always love to come back. Nestled in the cellar of a church it’s an atmospheric, charming place typical of Oxford. Great veggie and vegan options and delicious desserts.
Cafeteria style self-service means you can see what you want to order. Great for a proper breakfast/brunch or lunch or a short tea break.
Laptops are banished at lunchtime making the atmosphere more convivial.

We had brunch here during our stay in the city - it's in a lovely room and has a great outdoor seating area. It's not luxury by any means but the food was good and the setting alone makes it worth a quick trip.
