If you wanna try somewhere genuinely a bit different in Oxford, this is the one. It's extremely down to earth with a very small but always wholesome and interesting menu - all the food i've tried here has been great, and it makes a big...More

This is a great cafe especially for vegetarians. The food is always delicious, with massive portions and a really relaxed atmosphere inside. The coffee is great and they have a good selection of cakes available.

I Generally like the magic cafe, it is a relief from the overly hip cafe down the road. Today I had a takeaway curry. It was all pretty average with a LOT of rice and not much of the curries. Really grumpy staff!

A vegetarian/vegan menu which changes daily. This is one of my favourite places to go with my toddler - neither of us veggie/vegan but the food is great. As it is all cooked fresh and out on a serving counter there is no waiting; perfect...More

This is one of my favourite cafes in Oxford. The price and quality of food is extremely good and the coffee is ok. It is not pretentious and over the top like other cafes in the area, and provides a very friendly atmosphere

Always keen to find vegan options in Oxford was keen to visit and try what they had to offer. I found the interiors a little scruffy, tables need a clean and overall it was shabby. My friend had the pasta bake, cold and pretty tasteless...More

Loved the soup, salads, and veg lasagna. The myriad of flavors was overwhelming. One downside is they can run out of food fairly quickly so get there early. I'm guessing this is a symptom of the quality and demand for the product they are making....More
