When we opened our doors in 2015 we had one simple goal: to bring the wonderful Mediterranian flavours to Oxford. Soon, Opera Cafe was buzzing like a Moroccan souk with the smells and flavours of different cuisines seeping through our streets.
At Opera, we only use local coffee roasters, the best ingredients and everything is prepared freshly for you. In addition to our classic red lentil soup, exceptionally delicious Baklava, and heartwarming mint tea, we keep surprising our guests with new cakes and vegan wrap creations.
Opera wouldn't be the same if it wasn't for the people who come to Opera to discuss quantum physics over Egyptian Koshari (we are still at awe), to share the latest gossip over an Indian Masala latte (oh no he didn't..), or simply to read the latest Malcolm Gladwell book (we are huge fans!).
We love Oxford because it brings together a wonderful mix of people from around the world and with a little bit of turmeric, cumin and coriander we think we've just made it a teaspoonful better.
Five years on, with a few redecorations, menu changes, and new faces, we still have one mission: to bring a little bit of the Mediterranian to Oxford.
See you soon!
