This place has enough variety to satisfy anyone. Pastries, breads, and the best coffee in town. I spent a week in Oxford and tried every shop I came upon. Missing Bean hands down the best, and the friendliest. Small and crowded yes, but get it to go.

I have to say I think I had my best cup of coffee in Oxford at the Missing Bean. Based only on my one visit it may be suffering under it's own popularity. It was very crowded with only a single seat available at the window. The volume of conversation is very loud and there is no WIFI available. On the positive it has a nice wooden floor and black beamed ceiling making for an attractive interior. They provide a wide range of pastries, breads, fruit and sandwiches. It is a lively place.

On our third attempt one rainy Saturday afternoon we were able to stop here for coffee and a bite to eat - this place is always super busy even though it’s on a back road. The coffee is very reasonably priced/cheaper than the main high street chains. We’d definitely return if there wasn’t a scrum for a table.

We have made a number of visits to both the Missing bean in Cowley where they roast the coffee & also to the Coffee shop in Turl street.

If you enjoy good coffee this is really worth a visit. The guys where they roast the coffee (Magdalen street) are extremely helpful & knowledgable when trying new blends or buying coffee beans

Would certainly recommend a visit if you enjoy good coffee & are in Oxford.

Wet and windy outside, but friendly and cosy inside. Service was swift and good. Only gave an average for food as there isn't an option for not having any! I would visit again.
