Named after the year in which Robert D'Oilly built Oxford's original motte-and-bailey castle, this lovely café attached to Oxford Castle Unlocked is worth visiting even if you aren't going inside the castle. The décor is modern and clean-cut while the layout is spacious and pleasantly lit by the large windows that allow visitors to survey the courtyard. Since it was not long after breakfast, I kept my order simple and chose a cup of English breakfast tea and the Passion cake. The server was friendly and clearly cared about his customers' experience. After placing a rather slim slice of cake on my plate, he asked me if I would like a bigger slice instead. I declined and without hesitation, he gave me a discount on the bill which was gratefully received! Feeling pleased with his excellent service, I settled down on a squishy sofa and tucked in. The tea was your standard, decent cuppa, served 'properly' in a cup with a saucer, accompanied by a cute jug of milk. The Passion cake has been adeptly named as I loved it! The sponge was well-flavoured, moist and filled with small pieces of dried tropical fruits and nuts - I definitely tasted some pineapple! The cream cheese icing had the perfect amount of passion fruit flavouring and a sprinkling of chopped nuts topped it off beautifully. I recommend that lovers of cake flock to Café 1071 to try their cakes, sample their great customer service, and enjoy the majestic view.
