This is one of those restaurants that will fool you from the outside. It has a small and unassuming, yet elegant, facade. however, upon entering, you will realize that nothing about it is small. Oxford Exchange is not only a restaurant, but a coffee bar, bookstore and gift store, with an upstairs and a lovely atrium. I prefer to eat... More

Every time I'm in the need for some tea, delicious food, or just a lovely atmosphere, I head to Oxford Exchange. Every employee is so nice and very helpful. It's such a unique atmosphere and very elegant. They have numerous options of teas, and all the ones I've tried have been so delicious. I've had breakfast and lunch there, and... More

Had a delicious brunch with a group of six friends in the atrium. French toast was yummy. The staff is friendly and attentive. They don't take reservations normally even though we were a party of six, but somehow my friend manage to get one.

The Oxford Exchange sits right off of Kennedy across from UT. The atmosphere is half library and half palm house with an old world feel accented by the stone and wood floors. High ceilings channel the daylight from the garden seating keeping the feeling light and comfortable. Overstuffed chair seating areas scattered throughout create relaxed conversation nooks even in the... More

My son and I had Sunday lunch at Oxford Exchange recently. It was a wonderful experience. The restaurant was so busy but the staff were efficient and welcoming. The setting is amazing, and there is great energy! Our meals, prepared with local and organic produce were delicious, and well presented. The fried avocado wedges and the grilled chicken paillard with... More

Absolutely adore the Oxford exchange! I had the Mahi tacos and a pomegranate green tea, both were delicious!! Not only is it a great place to have lunch, you can also enjoy a nice coffee and catch up on some reading. Being walking distance from University of Tampa, there are many students passing the time between classes.

Beautifully restored building, high ceilings with loads of natural light in the dining area; our server was very professional. Separate coffee bar, tea bar, book store, retail shop and a Warby Parker store. Took our 6-year-old granddaughter out for a birthday brunch. She happily devoured her (thankfully not overly sweet) French Toast and I did the same with the best... More

Although it is a little pricey and not a lot of things on the menu, its still in my top. The food. The coffee bar. The tea bar. Always a great time there! Some waiters are not nice and those you can spot before you even have a seat but i never let that ruin my mood there.

Buddy Brew Coffee, great venue, great food - even a bookstore with a variety for everyone! Use Open Table to book your table especially on weekends.
