Kofenya
Ranked #1 of 2 Coffee & Tea in Oxford
Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 November 2012

This is a unique place, full of character, good service and comfortable seating. They are open late at night, which is nice, because not much is open late in Oxford.

My wife and I love to visit Kofenya on crisp fall and spring weekend afternoons to people watch from a bistro table on the sidewalk. I prefer to order a seasonally appropriate latte to compliment the environment, whereas my wife enjoys the Highlander Grog.
The dining room is enjoyed by students, professors, and townies alike for purposes of homework, recreational reading and writing, and simple people watching, among other things.
Kofenya does offer some pastries and lunch items, though I can't speak to their freshness as I've never had them...though I've always wanted to try some of their lunch items.
Look for work from local visual artists hanging in the dining room. Make some of your own chalk art in the bathroom. And go see the occasional concert in the evenings. Oh, and let me know how lunch is.

Locally owned and staffed, Kofenya is a welcoming place with a friendly staff and a complete coffee menu. Local pastries are available, but I've never tried them. Clientele is a healthy mix of students and elder sages.

. . . go to Starbucks. Thar's the independent coffee shop bumper-sticker slogan, and Kofeyna is an good example of why that's true. Funky, eclectic and with plenty of seating (except when Miami University students are studying), Kofeyna has good coffee, good food and a good atmosphere.

This is a quirky but cool coffee shop with mismatched furniture (some taken from an old auditorium at Miami University). The place lends itself to quiet reading or web surfing - or sitting around with friends for a leisurely chat. The coffee is quite good, although their pastries are really mundane. There are a few other food items that may fill you up but won't leave you speechless. Overall, a nice place to spend not much money.
