Very overrated deli. I had a sandwich with gluten free bread as I am very gluten intolerant. It was awful. The bread was more like cake and like so many GF breads instantly fell apart with the first bite. I had to eat with with...a knife and fork and even then it was near impossible. Two sandwiches, two packets of crisps and two drinks in cans for over £25 ! I know it’s the centre of Oxford but it wasn’t worth the money whatsoever. Avoid if you want a decent Gluten Free lunch !More

Spoilt for choice as a vegetarian, including all day breakfasts, but we chose salad bowls and sweet potato soup which came with really nice bread. It was all delicious, and organic too, and also really competitively priced. The owner was charming and friendly, and really...helpful and careful about a particular allergy. Very nice venue, good but discreet music and interesting art work on the walls, and the shop is pretty impressive too. Look forward to eating there next time we're in Oxford. Thank you!!More

We stopped by after a graduation ceremony for a quick breakfast. We had the avocado toast on GF bread, granola with fruit and yogurt, plain toast, and coffee. The GF toast was good, the granola was too seedy and hard to chew, the coffee was...not great. An OK place for a Quick bite if you are on a gluten free diet and wants something other than gluten free pizza while In Oxford.More

Absolutely loved the place! Everything spot on. From the moment you walked through the door you were made to feel welcome. Very happy and helpful guy behind the counter.(we visited on wed 23rd). He even offered to store our cases if we wanted to look...around Oxford! Breakfast was delicious. We had two different types of Eggs Benedict,one with bacon and one with salmon, and a full English.All dishes delicious, and the best eggs ever. The little shop also had loads of stuff to buy but sadly no room in cases!! Definitely a must visit place in Oxford. Was the perfect start to our visit.More

This deli cafe is a great place to start off your visit to Oxford. The people who run it are very friendly and helpful. In previous visits I've had sausage sandwiches, a bacon sandwiches and the full English breakfast, not all at the same time,...and been very pleased with my selection. Today I had a delicious vegetarian breakfast. The latte was very good too. Definitely a place to go to.More

Turned up here because of the good reviews on trip advisor. But im sorry to say that our experience was pretty poor. The coffee was not very good at all. And i ordered scrambled eggs on toast which really wasn't good either. My girlfriend said...the homemade granola was fine though. Altogether nearly 20 pounds spent and disappointed :( shameMore

Super find, we just happened across this and so glad we did. I had the pancake which was amazing, the others had sandwiches and soup all declared delicious. Teas and coffees also good. The service was lovely and the family pushing past us and trying...to take our table (they didn't!) couldn't ruin our time here. Lovely place for lunch.More

This cafe was close to where we stayed and we were lucky to get a weekend walk in table, great options for vegetarian/vegan and dairy free requirements and the meat was good quality too. Nice coffee with alternative milk selection. Juices also freshly made. We...all bought something from the products in the shop downstairs too stocking a selection of eco products and food items. The cafe is upstairs so not great if mobility is an issue. We also stored our bags here for the day for a small fee.More

I dont normally leave bad reviews but this one really disappointed me I had booked this place a few weeks ago, for lunch at 13:30 after running the half marathon. Turned up but they said they had run out of food and their kitchen was...a mess hence their kitchen was now closed. They said they didn’t have my booking on the system, but I clearly had a confirmation email, which they didn’t give me an opportunity to show it. They should really accomodate for what people have booked for! They should have atleast informed us the day before or even on the day! even by a simple email so we could’ve arranged another place for lunch. The last thing you need after running a half marathon!It’s a shame because I heard really nice things. I understand that they were busy and they were looking after staff but customers do come first as well If you book online never trust it! Maybe give them a call instead. Really disappointed and upset. Especially on a busy Sunday where everyone else was fully booked”More

The organic deli looked after us so well for a hen party brunch - we had our own area to ourselves for nearly 3 hours and allowed us to put up bunting and do some little activities. The service was great and the food and...drinks were delicious. I would highly recommend!More

Somehow this question, that I am unable to answer, has been addressed to me rather than the Organic Deli / Cafe. Anything that helps the homeless especially at this time of year is a really noble thing to do. Best wishes... More
