This is a cool place. Mostro Coffee lives inside Truck Store which itself is a very cool place to hang out. There's great music played at just the right volume: enough to give you and your companion a little privacy as you talk, but not...More

After years of dire coffee Oxford now has a glut of fantastic coffee venues, with several being dotted along the Cowley Road. In my opinion Mostro (they've now changed the name) provides some of the best coffee in Oxford. It's located inside Truck Store (a...More

Stopped here just by chance to try somewhere different from Costa! Really delicious coffee, would definitely return for a second visit and recccomend this place to others - the only downside is portion size relative to price. The name has changed - it is now...More

A wonderful cafe. The Keen Bean, inside the Truck Store, has a welcoming atmosphere along with a wide range of eclectic music and incredible coffee. It is a social hub of Cowley Road with locals and visitors alike striking up conversation over pretty much anything....More

The wife and I love coffee and so visited the Truck Store for its beans rather than its vinyl, but we absolutely loved it. The coffee (even a decaf) was fantastic, tasted as good as it smelled and the barista was very impressively friendly considering...More

The place was very friendly and cozy. I also like the service.. The barrister brought my coffee to the table and he was very kind. The music was old fashioned and the taste of the cappuccino was great. However, the portion was poor and expensive.
