Zappi’s Bike Café is a recently opened independent café in the centre of Oxford. We offer handcrafted artisan coffee, fantastic loose-leaf teas, homemade cakes and light snacks.

About Us

The café evolved from a previous café, run by ex-pro cyclist Flavio Zappi, on Walton Street in Jericho. In late 2010 Bike Zone moved premises from an old shop in Market Street to its new site in St Michael’s Street, at this time an idea arose to combine the two and create a bike shop Café. The new café opened in May 2011 and is run by two local young men, both called Dan, who have previously managed other cafés in Oxford. Zappi’s Cycling Club uses the site as its headquarters and run rides from there three times a week, which gives the café a vibrancy and energy. Although it is a bike friendly café, we do encourage non-cyclists to come and enjoy the quality products and laid back ambience.

We both believe there are a number of key ingredients needed in order to have a great café. Fantastic products, a great service and friendly atmosphere are key components in order to achieve this.

We are both self-taught baristas and have a passion for creating high quality coffee. We give every coffee the care and respect a good cup should have and we believe it’s the best in town!

Hope to see you soon.
