Greens is situated near the Eagle and Child pub (of Tolkien and CS Lewis fame) on St Giles which is in the heart of Oxford. Tick. It has an ordering area downstairs and seating upstairs. It's rustic and a bit higgledy piggledy but this adds to its charm. The walls have loads of information about upcoming events in Oxford which... More

We stopped for lunch and enjoyed both our food - a ciabatta sandwich, a panini and a millionaire shortbread - and the nice atmosphere. The staff were lovely and we found a table easily, although it did get busier around 12.30pm. We will definitely come back!

My daughter and I stopped in here for coffee, and were tempted by the chocolate shortbread. We ate upstairs, where there is plenty of seating, good wifi, and a nice view of the street. Pleasant and welcoming staff. It's nice to see independent premises, and it's gratifying to support them. Give this place a try.

Large group visited for breakfast to celebrate a family birthday. Delicious food, excellent service. Great layout with different rooms which made our breakfast feel like a private party

Great wifi. No idea how to make coffee. Sandwiches are fine. Panninis are pretty good. No whole milk which means the coffee is terrible.

This small cafe is an unsophisticated little place in terms of decor but nonetheless comfortable enough and relaxed. One can drop in for a drink, snack or smallish meal at a reasonable cost. Individual and different from the chains which is a nice change. Staff very pleasant.
