A good sized breakfast. Toast could be better ( seemed very cheap). Place is filthy though. Splatters all over the walls, dirty tables and floor. I wouldn’t return as it makes you wonder what the kitchen is like. Staff were friendly. Has vegan options

There's plenty of places to eat around Oxford - but it's always good to search out independent places. Greens is just that - decent coffee, good range of food to eat in or take out. Next to the Eagle & Child on St Giles.

After not being able to get any gluten free food at the cafe in the Ashmolean Museum we came here. Lots of gluten free options and very good coffee.

Small self-catering cafe with really tasty glutenfree cakes. I would really recommend the place for it's cake and nice juices. But, only for take-out. The sitting area wasn't that great.. really quite unclean, with sticky seats. Such a shame.

I recommend this place - self-service, brisk and busy, but full of atmosphere. One chooses and pays at the entrance, whilst the seating areas are small interconnected rooms on the first floor, reached via a small wooden staircase. Wide choice of sandwiches and other light...More
