visited here a couple of years ago with my nephew. Quite compact inside the restaurant, but still very pleasant atmosphere.

An excellent example of an independent cafe competing with the chains, one of my favourite places to visit in Abingdon. The service is excellent and the staff friendly led by the owner Richard. Can highly recommend the club sandwich and the cakes are cheeky treat not to be missed. Love this place.

Met a friend for coffee and croissants. Nice little outside seating area. The man who served us could not have been more helpful, offering water in an enormous dog bowl for our dog, on a very hot day.

Delightful little cafe. Warm welcome from the boss and two enormous scones with our cream tea. More cream than we could possibly eat (we did try) and a selection of teas to go with it. A must for any visitor to Abingdon.

The café was quite pleasant and bright with friendly staff and the baguettes and capuccinos were fine, but the toilet really brings the place down. Heading down the stairs the environment became decidedly shabby compared with the café itself. The floor of the toilet was unswept and dirty and the washbasin clearly hadn't been cleaned for quite a while. Although... More

I love Throwing Buns and they serve great coffee. I regularly call in for both takeaway and to sit in. This place is by far my favourite coffee shop in Abingdon.

Having recently moved from the north to Didcot, we decided to explore the beautiful town of Abingdon. We had a scope around and saw this cute and beautifully painted exterior "throwing buns". We popped our head round the door to see if there was a table as it looked busy. We got a fab seat on the lovely thick wooden... More
