In the April sunshine the garden was full of people relaxing and enjoying their lunch and it was just lovely in such a busy area to have such tranquil calm.

A slice of the peaceful side of life. Not fast paced and rushed like so many chain coffee shops. This cafe is incredibly homely with handmade products available to purchase. They have a lovely garden with outdoor seating. It's kid friendly (yay) but not over run with little ones (not noisy - my boy stayed sleeping in his pushchair, when... More

Restore restaurant's food is simply amazing: delicious, flavorful and healthy. The portions are generous (and the prices small!). The menu provides a good range of options. The place is warm, friendly and peaceful, just like the lovely staff. I wish I had a place like this back home!

Massive portion, brimming with olives and a really tasty sauce every time I come back to the cafe the food is superb, sometimes there is a small wait but for the quality of the food that is a small price to pay.

Very good coffee and tempting cakes served in this peaceful place just off the bustling Cowley Rd. A great place to either be alone or meet up with friends. It is perfect for Garden Cafe Runners after our Wednesday morning run!

Escape the stresses and strains of life at the Restore cafe. I love coming to this place. A little oasis away from the world despite being next to one of Oxford's busiest roads. Staff friendly, food good. Parking very limited. Better off walking. Peace and quiet needed? You're in the right place.

To die for. Bursting with flavours that have been grown at Restore's Fleetmeadow Project at Didcot. What a dish!

Their melon, lime and Cucumber iced cooler does exactly what it says on the tin! It was a life-saver in 33 degree heat. The garden is a real oasis with cool shade and a lush lawn or a couple of shaded areas where kids can play safely in the willow dome or the gazebo.

This was my second visit to the Garden Cafe. Today I spent time here catching up on some work, having lunch and then having a business meeting. The food is excellent, especially the cake, and the coffee hits the spot which is important to me because I am a bit of a coffee snob. There are two reasons for me... More
