Oli's Thai

A tiny, bright restaurant with meals so brilliant that tables are booked up months in advance. Get there early and keep fingers crossed for a seat at the bar. (If you do get in, have the spicy chickpea salad.)

Truck Store

This delightful café housed within a record store hits the sweet spot with great music, great coffee and great cake (supplied by the Barefoot Bakery, see their standalone shop on Walton Street).

Mario's

This Italian on Cowley Road makes me nostalgic for university – it’s the perfect place to go with a friend for big bowls of pasta and a carafe of cheap red wine. Their takeaway pizzas are also a firm favourite.
