Nice seat in the window. The staff were very friendly.
Sandwiches had some tasty fillings (one with sundried tomato and basil) instead of the simple ones you typically get, and nice change to have a little quiche as well!
Cakes were tasty - only one of each but easy to halve and share. And of course warm scones (not sure if they were freshly made or just reheated).
Best of all was the choice of a tart/slice of cake (rather huge!) to take home as part of the voucher deal!

Very busy café, but the lady behind the counter who was serving and making the coffee's, did a sterling job. She maintained her calm manner and was polite and efficient. Good selection of cake and pastries available. A welcome stop in busy Oxford.

Dropped in for breakfast on Saturday morning. Seemed quite quiet - we soon realised why...
Table service took ages, nobody came to take our order so we ordered at the till. Meals came out after 40mins freezing cold and the order was incorrect. I waited a further 20mins for a vegetarian breakfast which was cold and undercooked.
The staff kindly agreed to remove the coffees from our bill after we requested a discount.
The cafe is tired and needs an update (or at least some music to drown out the sound of the refrigerator generator.....)

We dropped in for lunch. Both ordered croque monsier. Both burnt on the outside and not cooked in the middle, with a wilting salad.
I should have said something at the time but didn’t feel like a confrontation. Last time I visited here, about 1 year ago, service was extremely slow and various customers were grumbling which didn’t make for a relaxing atmosphere. I won’t be visiting again.

Very nice staff. Tasty patisserie . Nice tea. Entertaining flies buzzing around and noises from refrigerated display. BUT refreshing afternoon tea stop.
