Good place to have breakfast. The portion is pretty filling. I was happy at the end. I had the Turkish breakfast plate which had a tasty white cheese, turkish pepperoni, 2 sunny side up eggs, beans, some sides (see the picture). All was pretty tasty....More

If you want a good quality low priced (for oxford) breakfast, with decent sized portions of delicious food, look no further! Staff are welcoming and helpful and always seems clean. Only let down (and this is no fault of the cafe) is that oxford students...More

Good 'greasy spoon' type breakfast, just a little pricey for my liking, although I guess that's Oxford for you...

Bright, clean and friendly, The Tick Tock Cafe is a great little cosy cafe on Cowley Road. The food is cooked to order and they have vegetarian options. To top it all, their prices offer the customer the best value for their money.

Excellent cafe food, with generous portions of breakfast food and panini fillings at a reasonable price, Tick Tock is definitely one to visit despite being outside of 'sexy Oxford'. The staff are incredibly friendly, and it is an extremely popular cafe amongst the locals.

Big mugs of tea. Everything cooked to order and reasonably priced (2 bacon, 2 eggs, 2 sausage, 2 hash browns, mushrooms, beans, griddle tomato and toast for £6.95). A favourite with the students and great for a fry up breakfast or Brunch.
