Best coffee in East Anglia

I used to come to Savino's quite regularly when I lived in Cambridge. It's a bit of an open secret that they make the best coffees in town (with quite a margin, imho). If you like your coffee, you'll like Savino's.

Much nicer than many of the coffee houses in the vicinity. Newspapers available. Sandwiches and cakes always look very tempting but I try not to eat them.

A brilliant little Italian café/bistro. Sandwiches are great (for everything from a bacon sandwich in the morning to a lunch pannini), and the coffee is excellent. Well worth popping in for an espresso to take away if you're in the area.

Good place to stop in and great coffee/food. Could do with slightly less vigorous air con 😆. Can sit outside if you smoke or don't mind smokers. Italian and English newspapers. Better than Costa

Savino’s - Emmanuel St, Cambridge Visited June 15 but have visited previously. Good little Italian cafe serving excellent Illey Coffee in 3 sizes and very reasonably priced - grade 5 out of 5. Also a good range of delicious freshly baked pastries and some homemade Italian treats plus some savoury options. It is always very busy though and you are... More

My boyfriend and I along with 3 friends went to Savinos for a catch up as we were regulars and we always enjoyed it there. That day, we all ordered coffee and a cake. Apart from that my boyfriend and I also ordered 2 paninis with salad so needless to say that our bill came to a quite considerable amount... More

Savino's is my favorite coffee house in Cambridge. They serve legitimate Italian coffee and have good options for food as well.

This small, family owned cafe sets a high benchmark for great coffee and light lunches. Everything is always fresh, special requests are welcome and catered for too. There is always something new to try but so hard to break away from my favourites. Can get busy during peak hours but it is well worth the wait.
