Expert review of Taylors
Taylors is one of Oxford's privately run mini-chains. You can find their delis in Summertown, the High Street and St Giles. Coffee and sandwiches are also served for those on the move. Taylors is distinctly upmarket; they choose interesting buildings and decorate with clean, understated lines. The staff might be similarly summed up.
Taylors' latest venture is a cafe-deli that serves a good breakfast and will whip up a pasta lunch for you in 90 seconds.
In the past, places to sit down were the exception rather than the rule in any branch of Taylors, but in converting this former chemist-cum-post office the company has staked out its claim to fully-fledged cafédom.
Bright and friendly with solid wood furniture. Taylors always has a certain Quaker class about it.
Very good. The company has a tendency to employ bright young men and women who relate well with the customers, even if English isn't always their first language.
At the very top of St Giles, just as it becomes Woodstock Road, on the corner with Little Clarendon Street, Oxford' s 'Walk of Food'.
Go for the £2.50 breakfast bap, which is excellent early morning value.
There are eight branches across the city. Visit www.taylorsoxford.co.uk/location for details.
