Serving breakfast, lunch, cakes and snacks, this is more than your average garden centre cafe. Open from 9.00am-4pm Monday-Saturday (Kitchen Hours 9am-3pm) and 10.30am-3.30pm on Sunday (Kitchen Hours 10.30am-2.45pm), visitors can grab breakfast on the go or enjoy a hot drink and a tasty treat after you’ve stocked up on plants and compost – visit Oxford Garden Centre Cafe for a delicious and wholesome bite.

True to Oxford Garden Centre’s roots, and our belief in supporting our fellow independent Oxfordshire businesses wherever we can, our cafe serves everything from full English Breakfast to sandwiches and paninis that are lovingly made from seasonal and local produce.

Always striving to keep the menu offerings fresh, flavoursome and competitively priced, we also offer a range of delicious cakes, biscuits, seasonal dishes and our renowned daily tray bakes in addition to our set menu of hot bites and sandwiches.

Free hot drink and loyalty offers

If you are 60 or over, from Monday to Wednesday every week you can enjoy a FREE small hot drink (Latte, Cappuccino, Americano, Traditional Tea) when you purchase any slice of cake/traybake (excludes tea cakes). Sounds like the perfect excuse to get together with friends to enjoy a treat and a natter.

Our café is the perfect place to meet in Oxford

Since taking over Oxford Garden Centre in 2018 we have completely revamped our café and, in summer 2018, we added our spectacular outdoor area. This lovely split-level patio was created by the landscaping team from our sister business AWBS and features large seating areas surrounded by raise beds and colourful planting by our horticultural team. Customers can now enjoy tasty bites and great hot drinks in the sun while admiring our plants and watching the world go by.

With an extensive indoor area and our lovely garden patio, the Oxford Garden Centre café is perfect for individuals, friends and family, but it is also a great venue for groups and larger events. Seating 40 indoors with space for another 20 outside on our patio, Oxford Garden Centre Cafe can also be used as venue. Whether you’ve got a weekly crafting club, you’d like to hold a local produce tasting event or you’ve got a horticultural book to launch – contact us for more information on using our cafe space and catering options.
