Just of the high street next to a church is this little gem. They have everything from tea and scones, to soup, to full English all day. Ofcourse there is much more on the menu but you get the idea.

The News Café has never let us down. Great tea. Delicous cakes and scones. Check the specials board for daily specials that don't disappoint. The staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating. You really have to try hard to not have a good time here.

We came here whilst being classic tourists in Oxford, I had the all the day breakfast and a latte. The service was great, Cafe was clean and the atmosphere was fine.

Don't particularly recommend the coffee but nice selection of quick bites. I like the smoked salmon bagel. Quick service, and nice with it.

Very warm, relaxing cafe, food was nice and well priced Only gave 4 stars due to lack of salad we got with our meals. 1 leaf and 1 cucumber slice :-) This could do with being addressed Other than that , a nice spot for a quick bite to eat

Been infrequently popping into the News Café for years. Staff always helpful and cheerful. I have my occasional naughty fry-up here and look forward to it. Not keen on the tea, I'm a tea bag person but the coffee is good. Wife a very slow eater but we are never rushed. Toilets spotless.

Just off the main shopping street. We had a lovely coffee and panini and our daughter enjoyed the tea cake. Nice and cosy and perfect stop for a rest and recharge. Good food at a reasonable price.

Visited on a Friday tea break with friends, had a decent cooked breakfast and a latte, would probably go there again if I was nearby

Surprisingly uncrowded for Sunday lunch. A nice central cafe to eat/drink in relative peace and quiet! Recommend their full English breakfast for £5.50. Great looking cakes, too, and free wifi.
