Every single time I'm in Oxford, I come here for the Millionaire Bars. They are remarkable and memorable. The service is also excellent and the place super great. Wonderful place/cause.

They do really nice cakes and sandwiches and the servers are always polite and friendly. The place also has a really nice atmosphere and a community vibe about it.

I love cafes where people who don't get many chances can learn to serve and then go on to bigger and better jobs. This is a great example of that. Everyone working really hard to make sure it all works. ANd the food is amazing!
