They're quick, not as expensive as brands and they have tasty coffee (however, if you're Italian or Spanish, this coffee will taste like the regular coffee at your local café)

I love this place much more personal and tastier than the big coffee chains. I have always received great service the food is always good. If you want a fabulous hot chocolate then this is the place, my only fault with it, is it should be bigger!!

I love this coffee shop!! It's my personal favorite in Cambridge. The baristas are always smiling and friendly and they make the best flat white that I've ever had...consistently! The pastries are fantastic and it's wonderful to get your coffee to go and head to the park!

Forget about the coffee, the entertainment is quite something! Staff were having some sort of fall out and kept paying their drama out in the shop. Not very professional. I know they're not very lucky regrading their location, but the outdoor seating is just a disgrace.

What's not to like! Run by Italians it felt Italian and I love it. Coffee is made superbly, the salad was fresh and tasty and there was plenty of it. The cake was a little disappointing but I think that might have been because everything else was so great. I could have stayed for hours. Warm and welcoming and a... More

If you want really good coffee, made with panache then come to Savinos! Very Italian atmosphere with a strong Italian clientele, that probably says something about the coffee. Some nice, freshly baked pastries and tempting paninis and soup too. A great change from the likes of Costabucks.
