Food was good, toasties and cakes. Coffee also good, however one of our party was served the wrong sized drink and two others were forgotten about until we mentioned it to staff.

Their jacket potatoes are to die for (great selection of toppings) and the selection of cakes would tempt anyone - all at very reasonable prices. Outside seating area overlooking the main square - altogether a lovely... More

This is a nice pitstop if you're not a fan of the coffee giants (I spotted 2 Costas in Abingdon which is 2 too many for me). It is certainly larger on the inside than appears from the outside, but still quite cosy. The staff were friendly, the decor had a faint whiff of market town oddness which felt appropriate... More

An excellent example of an independent cafe competing with the chains, one of my favourite places to visit in Abingdon. The service is excellent and the staff friendly led by the owner Richard. Can highly recommend the club sandwich and the cakes are cheeky treat not to be missed. Love this place.

Met a friend for coffee and croissants. Nice little outside seating area. The man who served us could not have been more helpful, offering water in an enormous dog bowl for our dog, on a very hot day.
