Breakfast in Oxford: The Grand Café

The Grand Café in Oxford is a place I can warmly recommend. We went there for breakfast and were just stunned by the beautiful, opulence interior. During the day they serve breakfast, lunch, cream teas and high teas. In the evening you will be able to enjoy some cocktails with locals and University students. According to Samuel Pepys’ Diary (1650), The Grand Café is the site of the first coffee house in England and now an Oxford institution. In the pictures you can see the Scrambled eggs on toast (£4.95), the Grand English breakfast (£8.50) and two Lattes (each £3.25). It was all absolutely delicious!

Dinner in Oxford: Jamie’s Italian

While staying in Oxford my boyfriend took me to the restaurant Jamie’s Italian. What comes to your mind when you hear this name? Yes, it’s Jamie Oliver, the famous british cook. The concept was founded in Oxford which is why we here have the first restaurant of this kind (but he himself was not there of course). However the dinner was absolutely delicious and don’t expect inflated prices. I enjoyed the salad called Market Superfood (small £5.95 / as main dish £10.95).This salad was filled with avocado, shaved fennel, candied beets, pulses, Italian sprouting broccoli, creamy cottage cheese, pomegranate, smashed nuts and seeds. Served with a fennel blossom Sicilian harissa. A real heaven! My boyfriend ate an italian steak with Italian-spiced skinny fries (£15.95). As drinks we head a non-alcoholic ginger mojito (£3.25) and a homemade lemonade (£2.95).
