We stopped in for breakfast on Tues morning.The waitress was very miserable.I had eggs with grilled bacon and tomatoes and my wife had the full vegi breakfast.Both were supposed to come with toast,they do but apparently new rules mean you only get one slice each.My eggs yolks were not to my liking and my bacon was as crisp and hard...

A visit to Jericho wouldn't be complete without a visit to The Jericho Cafe. It's a welcoming place with great food that caters for so many tastes... The staff are always polite, calm and friendly. My only gripe is that I don't get here as often as I would like!

Decent enough café in a good location but please clear up the tables - very annoying having to sit surrounded by dirty plates and cups.

Good food, but please give more.....good for kids, space downstairs, wish the priced were more reasonable, can't help think that they are trying to make as much money as fast as possible without having a core

Smashed avocado on toasted sourdough with seeds and cherry tomatoes - the tomatoes are bursts of flavour in your mouth. If you really want a treat add in poached egg and bacon on the side. Plus a great flat white! Everything served with a smile. Double thumbs up from me.

On the wall is a charming frieze of all the shops on Walton Street circa 1997 - what is noticeable is that most of them have changed names or identities in the past 20 years. One that has not is the Jericho cafe ... it continues to cater to a largely local clientele from its sunny corner location as it... More

Thank you so much for your lovely review. Yes, things have changed a bit along the street in our time, but we do try to keep our lovely, faithful clientele happy with a corner of continuity and consistency. It's good to still be here after all these years! More

Heard great things about this gaff. It was good but due to past glowing reviews I was expecting a tad more. Maybe a victim of its own success... Coffee was really awful, egg a smidgen over cooked but the sausages were a meaty delight. I'll give it another go but I'll be sticking to a safer cup of English tea.

I met three friends at 2:30pm on a Saturday. I saw a group get up to leave and grabbed that table while waiting for friends. No one came to wipe down the table which had lots of crumbs and sugar all over it. There are no menus in the windows, which is why I've never been in in four years... More

I'm sorry your visit was a disappointment. Our review in The Guardian 50 Best Breakfasts supplement last week made us incredibly proud but also incredibly, crazy, madly busy and we were rather overwhelmed at the weekend, as you no doubt saw. We are actively seeking more staff for weekends and I'm sure we will be back to our usual high... More

Delicious bacon bap - everything looked really tasty. Well worth seeking out on a rainy Monday Oxford morning.

Ive often visited the Jericho cafe for meet ups and once or twice for brunch. I generally think its a great place for coffee and cake. The brunch/lunch is a bit of a let down though. Its not that great, very basic things you could easily make at home yet quite priced. Just nothing special about it! I did once... More
