Well placed opposite Kings College, good place to people watch, food good, service warm and welcoming and price not expensive. Good for coffee stops as well.

Had many good breakfasts here but decided to have lunch and we were very disappointed. Husband ordered ham, egg and chips; egg and chips OK but ham disgusting very rubbery. I had chilli with rice. Not sure what the meat was looked like pork, not spicy at all and rice had been standing a while - not fresh. We were... More

We called in here for breakfast whilst staying in Cambridge for a long weekend in August. We had the full English (which unfortunately didn't come with any blackpudding!). The portions were a good size and the service was excellent. The breakfast comes with toast and marmalade. The restaurant is directly opposite Kings College - so you can't fault the views... More

I always eat here whenever I visit Cambridge. The central location (opposite Kings) is ideal, service is quick and efficient and my lasagne came complete with salad for less than £9.

Very tasty food, but quite expensive considering the small size of the portions. Don't go there if you're very hungry. Great location and a nice view of King's College and the Senate Houses. Modern and clean atmosphere inside.

Right across the road from King's College, Agora offers a varied menu. We went with the set menu and it didn't disappoint. We had dolma and cacik for starters and they were really good. The main course was kofte kebab and chicken agora, both really good in size and flavor. On the donwside, the staff was nearly non-existent. We had... More

I only visited this cafe for tea and so cannot comment on the quality of the food. However, I was disappointed with the service and this made me decide that i won't be going back again to eat. When I went to the counter to pay I was left standing for about 5 minutes while members of staff went about... More

Been here a few times, mainly with out-of-town visitors who like the location or heard about famous alumni that used to hang out here in their student days. Food is terrible - coffee undrinkable. Struggled to get attention of waiters, ignored unless you shouted or waved as they walked by. After placing order they would come back to check what... More

Copper Kettle has been doing great breakfasts for many years and continues to do so. It's popular with students, locals and tourists alike and it is also very good value for its location right in the centre of Cambridge.

We had dinner here tonight, and were delighted with the quality and presentation of the food, the friendly and very efficient service, the excellent value for money and the ambiance. From the other reviews it seems people tend to have breakfast or lunch here. We think it an excellent venue for dinner, either a deux or en famille. Not to... More
