Pao-Pao is a little Brazilian cafe on Oxford road that offer a modern coffee shop experience; they have iPads you can use for free, and there's free wifi, so you can connect to the internet via your phone/laptop/tablet. Pao-Pao is one of the better cafes on Oxford road, with fast connection and smooth, strong coffee that will power you through your day or night. I say night because it's open until 10pm and Pao-Pao is in a densely student-populated area, so it only makes sense that it's open late.
Pao-Pao might sound a little strange for a cafe title, but as the owners divulge below, the name might be how you see coffee:
It begins in Brazil, where the phrase 'Pao-Pao' is used as an expression that means "daily dose". The literal translation is "bread bread", but just as bread is a staple food for survival and has been for thousands of years, at Pao-Pao we believe that our great coffee is just as important as nourishment."
This small Brazilian café serves sandwiches, jacket potatoes, soups, salad, and your everyday café treats like cakes and muffins. Watch out for the self-serve yoo-moo frozen yoghurt though because it is all too easy to serve yourself a hefty portion and then have to scrape at least half of it off because you can't afford it (£1.99 per 100g, not the best value, but not the worst).
As stated in the title, Pao-Pao is a café, but they specialise in coffee from across the world. To create an exclusive coffee Pao-Pao have their own, made up of coffee beans from the following countries:
Indonesia: smoky flavoured blends Ethiopia and Uganda: slightly acidic, more citrus taste Hondurun Brazilian beans have a sweet cocoa flavour.
Blended, these beans make up the Pao-Pao's deliciously distinctive coffee. And after all good (and by good I mean outstanding, hello-wake-up-yes-I'm-awake) coffee is a morning must.
