Work of Art

Centrally located on Bonn Square facing the entrance to the Westgate Centre, the Art Café is a family-oriented and family-run café where as much produce as possible is local and locally-sourced. The café also caters well for vegetarians, vegans and special dietary requirements, such as gluten-free. As well as being locally-sourced, many ingredients are organic and free range.

Owners, Marcelo and Fabiana, along with manager, Andreea, believe in supporting local companies wherever possible. Fresh produce is sourced from suppliers in Oxford’s famous Covered Market. The Art Café’s coffee comes from local specialist, Bean Bags Coffee. Local artists are also supported with work displayed around the walls of the café.

The Art Café is deceptively large. From the front it looks as though it would be difficult to swing the proverbial cat inside, but spread over three floors it offers seating for 50.

Marcelo has been in the catering business in Oxford for around 25 years. He isn’t a chef, but he can cook, and as a manager who brings ideas to the business he likes to work with the chefs to have an input to the menu.

The menu offers a mixture of hot meals with a good selection of pasta dishes and jacket potatoes with a wide choice of toppings. Food is freshly made and home made. The traditional English Breakfast is a big favourite, but the best sellers are the gourmet paninis, baguettes and sandwiches. A hot favourite is the Sexy Brazilian – marinated chicken breast with bacon and mozzarella. Topping the list of cold fillings is the free range curried chicken with mango chutney served on an organic baguette.

For customers in search of a healthier option, the Art Café also has a wide range of salads and lots of freshly made smoothies. The smoothies are made from fresh fruit, which the Art Café itself processes and freezes, ready to use as required. Choose a traditional favourite, such as strawberry and banana or something more adventurous, such as the Detox Diet Smoothie, with raspberry, spinach, cucumber, lime and apple juice.

The Art Café is popular with students and townies alike. Local office workers pop in for breakfast, coffee or lunch and the café also does outside catering, delivering food to offices and local businesses, catering for meetings and other functions.

The Art Café is open from 7am – 7pm, seven days a week.
