This small cafe is an unsophisticated little place in terms of decor but nonetheless comfortable enough and relaxed. One can drop in for a drink, snack or smallish meal at a reasonable cost. Individual and different from the chains which is a nice change. Staff very pleasant.

I have had takeaway coffee and sandwiches from Greens a number of times and decided to take a colleague for lunch. We both ordered rustic baguettes as listed on menu and coffee. Both came with white baguettes with a few pieces of meat and a poor side salad. The seating area upstairs is pretty shabby and in need of a... More

Although there are a variety of traditional breakfast options, my boyfriend and I were pleasantly surprised that we found a restaurant that served both vegetarian and gluten free items. We both tried the vegetarian traditional English breakfast, and he was able to get gluten free toast on the side. Very delicious and reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend.

I had never noticed this place before and came in for a coffee and cake. Both were very nice and not too expensive. This is a small cosy cafe with very pleasant staff.

Popped here for breakfast on Friday whilst working round the corner.Full English was good and tasty and reasonably priced. My mate had omelette and said it was great. Lots of guys on the site use the café, they can't all be wrong.

Late on a bank holiday afternoon we needed somewhere to sit down for a quick drink and cake. All the selections on display looked nice but the date shortbread my friends choose was really dry and not at all nice. Upstairs the tables and chairs were really plain and one table was very wobbly and despite the place being empty... More

It's very rare that you find a shop that uses the more expensive higher-welfare meat in their products, but at Green's all their chicken is free-range, which means I will go out of my way when visiting Oxford to get lunch here. This doesn't mean that their prices are extortionate though. A lovely range of baguettes and sandwiches, as well... More

A great variety of good-quality food and drink, including many options for vegetarians and also vegans. A great selection of gluten free cakes, too! I had an apple and date shortbread (vegan)and a soy chai latte, both of which were very nice. Friendly, fast service, reasonably priced, and a good amount of options make this a great place to visit!
