It's a fantastic little shop with a wide variety of really good products and if they don't have certain items they will go out of their way to try and get it for you I love how they will offer you tasters
Jill and her team always greet you like friends and are on hand to help with any queries. The shop sells a variety of produce and products including fresh Degustibus bread. She hosts wine and food tasting evenings and also makes the best hot chocolate in town.

Friendly and warm atmosphere with delicious coffee. I can recommend the home made fruit cake. Will come again.
We are always greeted like old friends. There is a lovely range of excellent produce, both food (including Degustibus Bread), local pottery and high quality kitchen ware. We can also enjoy excellent coffee and locally produced cake.
Wonderful selection of quality cookware and food ingredients which you just can't get in any of the chain stores - even Waitrose! Service is wonderful - knowledgeable and friendly staff give really helpful advice.
Gill and her friendly staff will always go that extra mile to find that elusive ingredient or unusual wine or cooking implement. The shop is an Aladdin's Cave of foodstuffs, coffees, teas, equipment and wines. They also serve great coffee and will make up a baguette to order. Great!!
For quite the best properly filled baguette for lunch (beef and horseradish, or smoked mackerel wonderful), or a decent strong cup of coffee. Great for those kitchen gizmos you don't know the name of and advice on new ingredients to try...

My favourite place in Abingdon to drop in to relax with a hot chocolate while browsing for presents. A treasure trove for foodies! Always a warm welcome and plenty of ideas and advice if you want to try a new ingredient in a dish or buy an original gift.

The only place in Abingdon where it is possible to have a truly fresh light meal. Excellent variety of cold and hot drinks in a relaxed and friendly environment and good company, newspapers etc. Friendly and well-informed staff. First class and an asset to Abingdon.

This shop carries a very wide range of high quality products mainly related to food, cooking and the kitchen.The staff are very helpful and the service excellent. If you can't find what you're looking for elsewhere, then try here!
Always very polite and helpful without being overwhelming. If you are looking for something a little different but of great quality, this is the place to find it. Great deli and love the daily sandwiches too!

Whenever I visit Abingdon I often call in to Added Ingredients for coffee and a sandwich.
Added Ingredients is a real Aladdin’s cave, stocking a good range of British and continental food items, as well as offering coffee, tea and delicious freshly made light lunches in a friendly atmosphere.

Best coffee, quality food and professional, friendly staff!
Everything you need to make shopping an exceptionally pleasant experience,
We only manage to visit the deli a couple of times a year, and the owner always greets us as if it was just last week that we were in. She has a lovely range of pasta sauces, pastas, bread, wines etc. You can pick up some good quality ingredients for an Italian meal. It would be lovely if the coffee area could be expanded as people are always looking for a good coffee - and their fresh brewed coffee is excellent!

We visit this well stocked deli and coffee shop on average no more than once in 6 weeks. On arrival, greeted like old friends and asked if we want ‘our usual order’. Very impressive customer care, good value and freshly prepared.
Delicious food, excellent service with a smile and lots of good ideas to feed the family :-), best lunches with smoked chicken salad and mouth watering bread :-), always some interesting wines with plenty of advice to ensure you get the best wine to accompany your meal.
Wonderful staff, great stock, brilliant coffee and lunchtime snacks. What more can I say?

Just to say thank you so very much for the hampers, everyone was absolutely delighted and so nice that they weren’t all exactly the same. I had Christmas with all my family and they all went down a treat. I particularly liked the Snowdonia Cheese Black something? Very tasty.
A huge range of unusual groceries, wonderful deli counter, the best coffee in town to drink with the local paper and lovely people serving you - what's not to like!

Re: Thank you for the great spread today in Red Cross House.
Just thought I should drop a quick line to say Thank you for all you did today for me.
An exception feast which for those who attended they were most impressed thus those that missed such will remiss such at their leisure.
Once again thank you.
