First Review by JLGoodenough

Great place for vegan food in Oxford - Edit

We returned to the Art Cafe about a year from our first visit and were really pleased that the number of vegan options on the menu has increased and that they are all clearly labelled. There is a lot to choose from and everything we tried was tasty!

There's also a good selection of drinks, too and you can get them with soya or almond milk.

The cafe itself has a really chilled atmosphere, too, with artwork for sale on the walls spread over three floors.

You're pretty limited when it comes to vegan options in Oxford, so we really recommend stopping by the Art Cafe!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Reasonable prices, Friendly staff

mixed feelings - Edit

It's a nice place, central location and outdoor seating, with vegan options clearly marked. Lots of falafel, tofu, roast veg on baguettes, wraps, jacket potatoes and salad. They also do vegan chilli and pasta. They have almond and soya milk, and at least one cake/bar suitable for vegans (apple and date shortbread this time).
My marinated tofu baguette with peppers and olives was lovely and tasty, on a very fresh granary baguette. My partner's falafel and hummus wrap (although I was certain I ordered it as a baguette they didn't take the "customer is always right" mindset!) was dry and underfilled and a bit disappointing.
Worst: both came with a side of coleslaw, definitely not vegan, which they removed when we complained. This shouldn't happen on a vegan-marked dish!

Pros: marinated tofu, decent range of options, fair pric

Cons: (not) "vegan" coleslaw, poor falafel

Good place for a coffee or food to go - Edit

Went there a bit desperate for some plant based options. Had a nice cappuccino (they had both almond and soy milk available) with cookies (vegan). The cookies weren't on display or advertised anywhere and were rather chocolate chip cookies, as I had read here - which is what made me ask for them. The place is quite lovely, good for a stop, full of art and light. We bought some baguettes to go but it was upsetting the amount of options full of animal products. The one I had was quite nice - with marinated tofu, olives and roasted peppers.
They were nice but someone actually told me they didn't really know what veganism means.

Pros: Nice people, Plant based milks

Cons: You see meat everywhere while choosing, Check all the ingredients

Nice, high-quality café - Edit

Been here a couple of times and they've actually started doing vegan chocolate chip/double chocolate cookies! They're marked as such, you can't miss 'em.
They also do things like a marinated tofu & olives seeded bageutte, vegan versions of lots of their drinks (I think I have a soy chai vanilla latte there?) and a few nice flapjack-y type things. It's a good spot for lunch, either to eat in or take-away and it's very central (next to Bond Square, opposite the Westgate Centre).

Pros: central, quality food, showcases local artists

Cons: A touch expensive for regular outings
