Without doubt the best place for a tea or coffee in town.Friendly helpful staff combined with good quality food and drink.Top notch ! only minor gripe is I wish they would play 80s and 90s music but hey can't have everything!

Stopped off for coffee, served by very rude girl all too much effort for her and no please or thank you when serving customers. Then stood behind the counter slagging customers off to other staff

A few months ago they withdrew their lovely bacon and egg pie, big shame. So today the only savoury plate I thought I would like was the leek and mushroom tart. I don't think it had any more than quarter of a small mushroom in the whole thing, the leek (what there was) was tough and chewy and the pastry... More

Having sampled the chocolate frappe in Leamington Spa my grandaughter chose the chocolate milkshake in Banbury. The snacks are very nice and the muffins tasty and lots of choice. The loyalty card is a great asset. Would happily recommend.

Came here today just to try here for a birthday treat. Quite pricey for a cafe. My husband liked his mango smoothie but my Vanilla milkshake was very bland. His Apple and cinnamon muffin was great but my chocolate chip muffin was a bit dry but nice. Our panninis were ok even though no sauces were available. Don't think we... More

I would not have chosen this place from the sign over the shop, thinking it was just muffins and probably expensive. My daughter dragged me in and I had the best pannini I have ever had. It was real Italian texture, just crispy enough on the outside and soft in the middle. They are baked on site fresh every day... More

Muffin Break (next to the entrance to Marks & Spencer within the Castle Quay shopping centre) excels in what it does. The coffee is superb and served up impeccably. The range of food on offer is very tempting and does not disappoint. I had a slice of the spinach and feta pie which was excellent. The cakes and pastries are... More
