Need somewhere dog friendly for breakfast or brunch in Oxford city centre this weekend? Your in luck, as we have rounded up some of the best spots in Oxford that will let you dine with your dog.
Brunch might be our favourite meal of the day here at TODB. So why should our faithful furry friends be left out of such a wonderful meal? Buddy and I have scouted (tried and tested) some of the city’s top dog friendly brunch and breakfast spots.
The Vaults Cafe: a doggy breakfast with a view
First on our list is the Vaults. Right at the heart of the city, opposite the iconic Radcliffe Camera, there really isn’t a more typically Oxfordian spot for brunch. It’s best visited on a sunny morning, so you can sit in the courtyard and marvel at the iconic Rad Cam (get more info on the Oxford sites you can see with your dog here). The sausages are apparently amazing and I can testify that their veggie eggs and avo option is superb.
Good for: veggies and vegans.
Don’t miss: the view!
Turl Street Kitchen: for the city centre brunch dog spot
Turl Street Kitchen offer a regularly changing menu that features the best of local seasonal produce with a twist of creativity. Making a good thing even better is the community work that they support. The Oxford Hub, is their sister charity and both are thoroughly social businesses, from the produce they use to waste their waste. Dogs can join their owners for drinks and food in the front room (to the left as you go inside). Breakfast is served until 5pm Monday to Saturday. On the menu, you can expect classic breakfast buns and salmon and eggs, alongside more original affairs like their spiced chickpeas served with poached eggs, kale, beetroot hummus and toasted almonds.
Good for: somewhere to sit inside in the city centre.
Don’t miss: the £4 soft boiled eggs with DIY toast.
Gail’s: find the perfect breakfast pastry to share with your pup
Gail’s bakery only opened on Little Clarendon Street in early 2017, but has become a firm favourite. The Oxford branch of this London based chain is nearly always full on a weekend morning – so you know they are doing something right! There is Plenty of outside seating that is reasonably covered, which makes it a great spot for dogs on a clear day.
They bake fresh, handmade bread, pastries and cakes every day, all served with their house blend coffee. Whether you are looking for one of their signature breakfast rolls (we recommend the sausage, egg, and swiss cheese with tomato relish) or a heavenly cinnamon swirl (made using croissant dough for the most AMAZING texture), a breakfast at Gail’s will set you up for a Saturday of wondering through Jericho perfectly.
Good for: watching the hustle and bustle of Little Clarendon Street.
Don’t miss: the cinnamon swirl.
George Street Social: first breakfast then dog walks
Located opposite the Oxford New Theatre, George Street Social is a city centre brunch spot that is surprisingly dog friendly. Whether you are looking for a classic yoghurt and granola combo or something more adventurous like the Baked eggs Shakshouka with N’duja, roasted aubergine, tomato & peppers, their menu has something for all tastes.
George Street Social also offers bottomless Prosecco brunches (but we think they are best for non-dog situations).
Good for: those who like to play board games with their brunch.
Don’t miss: American pancakes with blueberries, raspberries, banana, and maple syrup.
♥ Happy eating fur-friends!
