We love Oxford Exchange. Two of us had the flatbread for breakfast and it was delicious. One had eggs benedict and was completely surprised how much cumin was used (not their fav) but we all shared our dishes and all were happy!! Suggestion to put that ingredient on the menu in the future.
In the past I loved everything about OE. The food, the ambiance, the service, gift shop, coffee shop, book store and the tea shop had me very excited to go to Oxford Exchange. Things were not to the usual standard on Monday. The banana nut pancakes were very heavy, not light and fluffy. The maple whipped cream was just too much on top of the pancakes. Also, I prefer to control the amount of syrup, but without me knowing, they pour the syrup on the pancakes before they are served. We waited over 10 minutes for a server to acknowledge us due to a server not having yet arrived. We paid $10 for parking at the church across the street due to construction. At least the money went to a good cause, but to have less than a good experience made it seem steep. Also, the egg white scramble was mediocre at best even though whole eggs was requested. Even if the eggs had been whole, it would not have made a difference. It was not tasty at all. The toast had no butter. At least I did not have to pay for the returned pancakes and they brought me the egg sandwich which as usual was wonderful. I don't live in Tampa and it's rare I can get to Oxford Exchange, so when I get there and can actually get in (reservations are very highly recommended), I'm so excited. I will return someday, but it will be a little while. In the meantime, I'll try some other eateries.
The Afternoon Tea was delightful! The varieties of tea to chose from was excellent! The food was delicious and just the right amount. We never felt rushed and we're able to enjoy ourselves.
Wonderful food and amazing ambiance! I would recommend this place to everyone!
We went for brunch. Great food & service! The place is always packed on the weekend! The only downside is the parking.
Brunch with friends to close out my graduation wknd. Amazing experience. Loved the atmosphere/ambience, the staff was superb, and food delicious. Will definitely return if back in the Tampa area in the future!
Best Ever. Great food, Great service, Great books. A fun place to go to. Always feels like a special event.
Always great food and atmosphere
Outstanding food and service !!Love the Sunday brunch... always looking for spots like this.
Birthday for my neice
Normally my overall experience is a 10 not this time! I was not pleased with any of the plates we order.
Super cute place and perfect for a midday date. The food was amazing and service was super quick.
Great food & atmosphere
We had a great brunch! The food was tummy and the service was quick and friendly. OCuldnt ask for a better brunch.
Everything was great! I was disappointed to learn that you stopped serving the scones with the cream.
Love coming here! Simply awesome food great atmosphere, love the food here
The coffee was too bitter for my taste, but other than the food was very tasteful and the teas are awesome! I recommend the apple cinnamon, and kiwi coconut teas.
I've been here maybe 7 times. 3 out of.those times they forgot to give us a waiter/waitress and we sat and waited until we flagged someone down to get service
Love this place!
I try to stop at Oxford Exchange every year a few times since I live in Orlando. I frequently meet friends from up North visiting as "snowbirds". it's a little loud early lunch time, but if you meet after 130 for lunch, it's a bit quieter and really a good place. The servers are attentive, the food comes from the kitchen quickly and the cocktails and wine offer a very good selection.
Awesome service, delicious food, and great atmosphere. Only thing is it's quite loud, but it's a great date idea!
Michael took care of me and my parents and I can’t be more grateful.
I really dislike having to pay $10.00 for parking (a MAXIMUM 2 hours). I might have ordered a more expensive meal or another drink if I didn’t already throw out $10.00 before even getting in the door. A friend ordered a breakfast sandwich and a side of berries, turns out the side of berries cost as much as the sandwich did. By the time we were done, there wasn’t much of our 2 hour time limit to look around the store or grab a coffee at the bar. Lovely ambience but could use a few improvements in other areas.
Sunday Brunch was delicious, you MUST try the Pumpkin Babka, it was life-changing. The portions are very generous and every single thing on the menu sounded great. Made a reservation ahead of time and was very glad we did as it was pretty full by 10am. The location is trendy and unique. We loved browsing the shops and lounging near the tea bar after we ate.
Afternoon tea was a fun experience. The tea was out of this world delicious, and the selection of teas is amazing. I had a Banana Cream Tea latte! The savory selection of the food left much to be desired, however. The mini brioche buns that the chicken salad was served on must’ve been kept in the fridge because they were stale and cold and hard. A brioche bun should be nice and soft and cushy. Service was perfect and vibe of the place is great. They just need to up their sandwich game. :)
Overall, great fun way to catch up with girlfriends on. a weekend afternoon!
Always a great experience at Oxford whether for breakfast, brunch or afternoon tea. Love it here!
Been 2 times in 1 week. Both times food was great except for sweet potatoes fries which were dried out and cold. Everything else was great!
I love the location, and the manager is fantastic!
I love the hang here! The menu in the restaurant is varied and fun and the food is consistently good. There's also a great coffee bar. I particularly love the tea bar! There is also a very cool shop that you walk through on the way into the restaurant.
My friend was uncharged $6 for a side of spinach and I think that's ridiculous.
We absolutely loved our lunch last Saturday. We tried both the steak salad and harvest salad and both were incredible. We also loved the fried avocado, mimosa, and masala chai tea latte with soy milk. Service was excellent. Our waiter attempted to find a scone for us to try even though it wasn’t tea time. Since he was not successful, we will definitely be back during high tea!
Noisy, overpriced and the food was so-so. I was very disappointed.
Thanks to Alex, Another delightful lunch with the usual outstanding personalized service.
I take all my friends to try this restaurant. Last week, we I went there, it was a little disappointed. I know it was Sat and it was busy. I know the server tried his best and it took some time to take our order. The food came out a little cold for my Club sandwich, the bread was not crunchy and the sweet potato fries were over cook and tasted like left over. You used to cut the Club sandwiches 4 pieces but now it is two and it did not look good.
Lovely ambiance. Waiter, Killian, was so personable, polite and very friendly. Food was great. Have been to this restaurant at least 6 times. This time took 2 friends who absolutely loved it.
Great spot and food
Food abd ambience were wonderful. Parking a little difficult to find.
Oxford Exchange has rapidly taken its place as my "go-to" location when meeting friends or for informal business meetings. From entry to exit, the experience is top-notch. Service is always welcoming, efficient and professional. I always look forward to going... and to returning.
It was so cold that my food was cold in the first few minutes after it was served.
Love sitting near the fountain. One of my favorite lunch places.
