Built around a love for our community, No.25 café in Benson, Wallingford is a place where everyone is welcome. Our menu of locally roasted coffee, speciality teas, delicious homemade cakes and savoury dishes was created with every family, cyclist, dog walker and coffee lover in mind. As new parents who know how difficult it is to find cafés serving child-friendly food and drink, we also have some healthy, tasty options on our menu, just for the little ones.
Set right on Benson High Street, a 10-minute walk from the River Thames, we like to think of No.25 Café as the heart of the local community. Stylish yet cosy, family-run and friendly, it’s where people from all walks of life come together to appreciate the best coffee and cake Benson in Oxfordshire has to offer.
BUILT AROUND FAMILY
As a local, family-run Café in Benson, a great deal of love and care goes into everything that we do. Baking is a huge slice of our family life, and something we’ve wanted to share with our local community since we moved here. Everyone knows home-baked is best, and all our delicious cake recipes are first perfected at home and then baked fresh by Steph here at No.25 Café in Benson.
We wanted to use our Café to support smaller, local businesses like us. This is why at No.25 we always try to use ethical, sustainable and locally sourced ingredients for our speciality coffees, teas, savoury food and cakes, and much of the furniture you see inside the café is up-cycled or repurposed from a local wood recycling centre.
No.25 café was dreamt up by Steph, Phil and little helper Darcey to offer a warm, cosy place for families, couples, friends and their dogs to meet, eat delicious cake and unwind.Learn more
HOMEMADE WITH LOVE

KEEPING IT LOCAL
We love giving back to the community and supporting independent business like ourselves, and we’ve chosen our suppliers with this in mind. No.25’s speciality coffee beans are roasted in Oxford by New Ground Coffee, a sustainable supplier who use beans from small scale farmers.Contact us
Lovely new cafe in the village. Have been a frequent visitor since they opened as the staff are always super friendly, the coffee is made perfectly and goes so well with the freshly baked cakes and treats. Definitely worth a visit, even a bit of a drive from the neighbouring villages. - Otto Sparrius
Awesome coffee, freshly baked cakes, cookies and brownies (carrot and red velvet cakes are on top of my list). The place is always clean, atmosphere is very nice and friendly. I absolutely recommend this place. - Andrea Hockman
Great coffee and the most amazing, enormous sausage roll. Perfect post ride fuel. Our new favourite cycling stop 👍 - Matt Law
No 25 is the best coffee shop around for miles according to my twelve year old and I agree. No 25 is just what Benson needed - a family friendly coffee shop where you always get a lovely warm welcome. A wide variety of drinks and home made food - the Red Berry Smoothie and Zebra Cookies are particular favourite of our family. Definitely recommend a visit. - Clare Read
