  • Visitor Information

From the team behind The Barbary and The Palomar, Jacob the Angel is a trendy little caf in the colourful Neal's Yard. Taking its name from England's first coffeehouse - Oxford's seventeenth-century The Angel - the intimate venue only has seating for ten so it's angled towards takeout, with a daily changing menu drawing the crowds. For breakfast, there's toasted bagels and sourdough topped with avocado (of course), soft boiled eggs and smoked salmon while lunch offers a selection of seasonal salads and specials. For something a little more indulgent, tuck into the banana bread and coconut cream pies.
