“More of a coffee shop than a bakery”

Oxford Baking Company
Ranked #1 of 2 Bakeries in Oxford
Restaurant details
Reviewed 18 October 2016 via mobile

Stopped by for some sweet treats for dessert for the family. Inviting front porch with places to sit and flowers sets the scene for what lies within. When you walk in, the smells of sugar and butter waft through the air. Very nicely renovated old home which was transformed into a bright and light storefront with one side showcasing its beautifully displayed baked goods and coffee & teas while the other side of the space is set with cozy tables around a stone fireplace, complete with a portrait of a stately fox, which is its mascot. Cute little fox decor is peppered throughout. The choices of coffee and teas were extensive and the baked goods well done. Scones, buns, cookies, beautifully decorated cupcakes. Not many choices for a group, more like individual selections, but I did see them decorating a large and lovely cake in the back. I only saw one cake in the case for sale, hence the reason I say it's more of a coffee shop than a bakery. We purchased scones and a loaf of carmaelized onion bread, all were delicious but a little pricey for what they were. I would definitely go back for a lovely place to sit with a good friend or some quiet time for a cup of coffee and scone but not as a bakery for dessert for a special dinner.

We enjoyed our visit. It had quite charming decor. They had comfortable seating and a fireplace. The staff was very helpful too. They had fresh baked bread, cookies, pastries, cakes, coffee, tea. We bought chocolate chip cookies and a loaf of sourdough bread to take home. I had a cup of tea and my husband had a toasted roll and butter. When in the area I would visit again.

We frequent this place at least once a week and walk out with a few boxes of goods. This is what a bakery should be. Every thing from scratch, not a mix. Refreshing and better than the chain coffee stops. Problem is it has been some time a real bakery has been in the area and people have gotten used to coupons and second rate baked goods.

Very disappointed. Too Doughy, and way too expensive. The bakery was new. Maybe they are experimenting or need lessons in fine baking. Stop n' Shop or Shoprite bakery products are on a par with Oxford BakingCompany. Sorry!

So expensive, French style bakery less sugar content! Items are tasty but very expensive!

$3+ for scone, $.90 for small cookie that I'll pass on from here on.
