Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This convenient and comfortable cafe boasts a prime location beside the beautiful Baroque town hall. It's name reflects the quirky & fun local tradition of "bun throwing" to celebrate jubliees and events. The service was courteous and efficient, the choice range on the menu, impressive for a small cafe, offering savoury lunchtime snacks as well as teas and cakes. Prices are very reasonable and the ambience relaxed and with character. We were very glad we opted for it, rather than one of the generic chains, and will no doubt visit again.

An enormous thank you to Olga for the wonderful cream tea for five of us which we enjoyed in our home during lock down. Together with the service received, the quality and quantity of these delicious offerings far exceeded expectations and were up there with the very best of afternoon teas which we have had anywhere In the world. It is wonderful to have such quality in our lovely town.

This is a lovely little gem of a coffee shop within the heart of Abingdon. The name is a simple but effective and is a reference to Abingdon's history of bun throwing, which is now a 400-year-old tradition. There is a cosy feel to this small cafe, with a lot of old fashioned memorabilia on the walls. The seats and solid, yet comfortable and the customer service is very friendly. There is also seating outside for approximately 10 people, and the same again inside. If you like somewhere that is a little more quiet compared to the large number of coffee shops within close proximity within the town centre, this the perfect option. The main gentleman who works at this establishment is friendly and always smiling. There tends to be a lot of younger adults employed as well, working the odd hour here and there, this is nice to see as it shows support for the local community. Our favourites include the follows; spiced chai or vanilla chai latte, flat white and mocha. Portion sizes are good and there are some simple breakfast/lunch options available as well.

Just popped in, having walked into town on a Sunday morning, for a coffee and bite to eat. We were warmly greeted and swiftly served. The cafe is in a beautiful old Tudor cottage, with low ceilings and exposed beams. There are several tables with comfortable seats. We actually sat on an old leather sofa, where I enjoyed a fresh warmed almond croissant and my husband had a bacon and sausage bap. There are a selection of hot dishes available and yummy fresh cakes too. Situated behind County Hall, this independent cafe is well worth a visit

Sat outside on a damp day, which could have been a bit dismal, however we both really enjoyed our meals here , overlooking the Market Square and the atmospheric County Hall. Pay as you order, and then waiter(ess) service. Good Coffee and excellent Teas ( in a bone china teapot). Bacon and brie role was outstanding, and the only down side was an inconsiderate smoker. Well worth giving the national chains a miss and supporting a local based coffee shop.

Two customers, we ordered two coffees and seat in a table. After 20 minutes a member or staff rushed to the table and stated that if we are not going to order more, we need to leave because other people waiting. We found this very rude. Coffees are expensive these days. We cannot enjoy it if they rushed you out . Very poor customer service. You just lost two customers. I don’t recommend it

Lovely cafe bar and staff. Rather spoiled by its restricted table layout and size. Wherever you sit, it feels like other customers are right up close, which makes it quite claustrophobic.

When travelling down the A34 I detoured into Abingdon for a coffee and cake stop. I found 'Throwing Buns' and got a Latte and Banana Cake to go and it was fabulous coffee and nice cake. They had plenty of tray bake cakes to choose from and the interior decor was great, a shame I was taking mine 'To Go'. Staff were friendly and prices reasonable. There's outside seating as well which would be great on a nice day to sit and sip coffee, nibble cake and watch the world go by. Highly recommended.

We have recently moved to Abingdon and wanted to find a local coffee shops (that wasn’t a large chain), we found this little gem on Sunday morning. The coffee is delicious! Dog friendly and breakfast was lovely. Staff are very friendly and cannot wait to return!

Lovely people but truly horrible coffee. I thought because they had an expensive Italian coffee machine that the coffee would be good but it was like dishwater. yuk

Coffee and sandwiches are fine and good value. Friendly staff. Nice outside seating area. Inside could do with a refresh.

Coffee and cake isn’t just what they sell but an experience for one to remember friendly staff and an inviting atmosphere will be returning
