We had lunch here on Saturday. The pizza's were really really good as was the pulled pork burger. Service was friendly and efficient. Try and get a seat by the window, it's a great place to watch the world go by on the Cowley Road.

Went a for breakfast on a Saturday. Got a table right away even though it was quite busy. Ordered breakfast with fresh orange juice and coffee. Tasty food, cool place (perfect for weekend brunch). The prices were OK, mid range. Quick service.

Much too far away. Head to George Street where there are lots of restaurants. Walking distance or very short cab ride, lots of choice. Or short cab ride to the Ashmolean museum which has a lovely restaurant.
