Well worth a visit, but very small and very busy. They take great pride in their coffee and roast their own beans, the coffee is excellent and during our visit we enjoyed muffins, these were delicious and very light.

Great coffee tucked away off the main drag. Was following google maps to get to the Visitor Info and came across it just in time for my morning fix - if I had been hungry would have eaten - they had vegemite bagels - kiwis...More

... rich, well roasted beans with complex flavours, expertly prepared. Proper third wave coffee. Genuinely delicious drinks. Accompanying cakes don’t meet the same high standard. Seating is not comfortable - be prepared to perch on a cheap wooden stool if you sit in. Worth it...More

Went here for an afternoon delight. The cafe didnt have a spare seat or table indoors, but seeing as it was so hot inside, we were happy to take little stools outside on the pavement to enjoy our coffee. Cappuccinos were nice, quite a creamy...More

I haven't been here for while, so I can reflect on its good and not so good points. The main good thing is the coffee, which is amongst the best in Oxford. There is more competition now than when I last reviewed it two years...More

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...More

So sorry, don’t know. I did not see any and don’t remember any outside tables. It is extremely small so if not; that would be the only reason as staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
