A cosy place to visit and the best cafe in Abingdon(if you compare with big brands like Costa!). I totally recommend it.

Order just a plain cheese toasty, the salad that comes with it was just awful the lettuce was brown at the edges the presentation was like it was just slapped on the plate and toasty was cold.

Was really pleased to find this cosy cafe on our recent visit to Abingdon. I love the link to the famous bun throwing in the town. I went for the Elvis sandwich which was divine! The staff were very helpful :)

Just off the town square, we stopped here for a cream tea which was fairly average. Staff were friendly but a bit slow with the service (and it wasn’t even busy).

Ordered 2 coffees. Took over half an hour to be served. Complained and they had lost our order. We also saw them serve us using cups that were taken off a table and only rinsed under the tap. Sadly will not return.

Ordered normal tea - when it arrived it was Earl Grey. Ordered soup - not a difficult job to heat and serve, but we waited a long time (over 20 mins) for it. 3 members of staff and the cafe not full, but service slow....More
