The Grand Café (Oxford)

If you happen to be visiting Oxford, I'd highly recommend a refreshment stop at The Grand Café.

Not only is it, as promised, rather grand in a sort of Viennese way, but the food is excellent. Sandwiches, teas and a vast range of homemade patisserie abound – but the fully stocked bar with cocktail happy hour gives this place a bit more of a buzz than a funereal Betty’s Tea Room.

Service is attentive, the oversized wicker chairs lend an air of colonial lounging, and the clientele is a mix of bumbling tourists, students and locals in ‘sweet’ harmony… (boom!)
