Coffee is locally roasted and delicious. Cafe has a good view onto Turl Street so fun for people watching if you sit in the front window. Friendly staff.

Lovely cafe in Oxford. I am a big fan of chai latte and at the missing bean I had a fantastic one. I also tried the toasted banana bread and I highly recommend it!

I went there with my friend last week and had a really delicious pumpkin cake with chai latte. The interior is indeed very photogenic and magical. I hope I will have a chance to visit The Missing Bean at least once more.

I admit that I'm a bit of a coffee snob and will hunt out the best haunt wherever we go on holidays. The Missing Bean is supposedly an Oxford 'institution'. We bought coffees here (flat whites) on a Sat and Sun morning in Feb and on both occasions it was packed to the gills with tourists and students alike. We... More

Reasonably priced drinks. We had a delicious chai latte and spiced pumpkin cake. Atmosphere was good and we did not have to wait long for a table. We returned twice during our visit.

Wonderful coffee, relaxed ambience and delicious cakes and pastries. I especially enjoy their almond croissants - fresh straight from the oven. Tucked away down Turn Street but well worth a visit.

I recommend missing bean to... More
