Nice relaxed place for a bite to eat. Good cream teas, good ciabatta and fantastic bubble tea. Staff really friendly and helpful, place nice and clean. Easy to find, right opposite the museum and market square.

A cosy place to visit and the best cafe in Abingdon(if you compare with big brands like Costa!). I totally recommend it.

Order just a plain cheese toasty, the salad that comes with it was just awful the lettuce was brown at the edges the presentation was like it was just slapped on the plate and toasty was cold.

Was really pleased to find this cosy cafe on our recent visit to Abingdon. I love the link to the famous bun throwing in the town. I went for the Elvis sandwich which was divine! The staff were very helpful :)

Just off the town square, we stopped here for a cream tea which was fairly average. Staff were friendly but a bit slow with the service (and it wasn’t even busy).
