Café Tables

Set up in the shop are three tables - so not for a lot of customers at once!

However what we do offer is a range of drinks including glasses of wine, beer and cider, and open sandwiches and salads based on anything that we sell in the deli counters plus other daily specials. Also our own variety of meze/tapas plates - meats, cheeses, marinated vegetables, salads, breads in the middle of the table for all to share.


Teafusion - The Loose Tea Company

We offer a range of teas - firstly, an honest down-to-earth pot of tea - good Typhoo with freshly boiled water and a warmed pot, or if you prefer something more exotic...

Cardews of Oxford

Freshly ground for each cup it is a reasonably strong but not bitter coffee. We can offer latte, cappucino, expresso and macchiato or a straight forward black coffee with hot or cold milk on the side.

The breads we sell are delivered daily from our local baker here in Abingdon (Wootton Road), De Gustibus.
All De Gustibus breads are handmade using their own, unique long fermentation process and recipes for maximum flavour and keeping qualities. They are made with fully natural ingredients with no flour improvers or emulsifiers.

Listed here are those we stock most regularly but they do produce many more. Most of their breads can be ordered through us here at Added Ingredients (01235 537405) so by all means visit their web-site too ( see what they have and phone us to order (before 2 p.m. each day for delivery the next day; Friday 2 p.m. for Monday) Some breads are only available at their Borough Market site and shop so if you're lucky enough to visit the famous foodies market do see the rest of his range.
Listed below are some of the breads we sell regulularly:

  • Six Day Sourdough
    The ferment is started from a tiny bit on the first day and refreshed for days and then on day six handed up and baked to a succulent but mild bread with excellent keeping qualities. Wheat, rye, wholemeal, sea salt, purified water and malt make this delicious special and yeastless bread
  • Ciabatta
    The classic Italian loaf (the slipper), specially baked with extra virgin olive oil for days of natural freshness and maximum flavour, the softness unique to our creation makes it the best selling ciabatta
  • Tomato Ciabatta
    Italian herbs and sun dried tomatoes give our own creation its special taste
  • Spinach Ciabatta
    Succulent leaf spinach and a hint of spices makes this bread truly unique
  • Garlic Bread

  • Olive Focaccia
    Soft and moist with a distinctive taste of fine blended herbs and green and black olives finished with extra virigin olive oil, good eaten on its own, grilled, filled or topped, you will find nothing like it
  • Fresh Rosemary & Sea Salt Focaccia
    The classic Italian pre-pizza bread, deliciously eaten with melted cheese or garlic topping, or just on its own
