Caffe Nero caters for crowds of locals, students and tourist looking for food, a long drinks list and a buzz; at weekends, it’s heaving. Three branches in Oxford, one at the Blackwell book shop, High Street and Gloucester Green, offers excellent coffee and food (sandwiches and pastries) and complete calm in which to lunch quietly.
