Free Kids Meal

free kids meal offer

10p eco discount for your own mug

Recent research has shown that using incentives can help to change peoples behaviour in their daily coffee routine. This is important because an enormous 2.5bn disposable coffee cups are used each year and the vast majority go to landfill . So we are going to offer anyone who brings their own mug a 10p discount on each takeaway drink they buy.

Enjoy good coffee and save the planet.

Throwing Buns has reopened with a brand new team

Come in we're open

Since opening in 2010 Throwing Buns has become a much-loved Abingdon institution, which is set to continue under the new owners, Stefanos and Olga.  They visited Abingdon with their toddler Olivia in October last year and instantly fell in love with both the town and the café. 

“You can feel Abingdon’s history in the market place and Throwing Buns fits into the town’s culture so well, I knew we’d be happy here.” Olga said of their first visit. They moved here almost immediately and were up and running within a couple of months.

Stefanos brings a wealth of experience to the role having spent 25 years working in the food and beverage industry, both in the UK and in his native Cyprus. “Good food and good coffee are the key to a successful café but it won’t work without a friendly and homely atmosphere. Throwing Bun’s amazing location and ambience mean that with the best coffee and fresh local ingredients we can maintain the great standing that this little café has in the town.”

Also, continuing from before Throwing Buns can offer catering for parties and meetings and also could be an evening venue for events. Stephanos added “We are also hoping to hold a few “taster” events where I can showcase the fabulous Cypriot cuisine”. Keep checking their website and social media for updates.

In the meantime, pop in for a tea or coffee and a cake, they look forward to seeing you soon.

Welcome!

This February we have reopened under new management: Stefanos and Olga Georgiou. We have undergone a makeover, altered the menu to include some old favorites and something new to try. We have also introduced a new locally sourced range of cakes and traybakes which we hope you will like.
