Our family visit to Cambridge to see a son at Trinity would not have been the same without a hearty quality breakfast. Lovely smoked salmon with scrambled eggs, a beautiful full English, and even the bacon sandwiches were glorious. Quick efficient staff and a lot of dutiful help attention for my disabled mother in law in a wheelchair made it... More

I've only ever eaten breakfast here, but as a 'first port of call' for a shopping trip I have to say it is unparalleled. With views of Kings College to help the bacon down it captures much of what appeals about Cambridge.... Bustling, multicultural and cosmopolitan. That said, a couple of extra slices of bacon wouldn't go amiss.

We visited on a Groupon Voucher which entitled us to a hot and a cold meze for two. The offerings were really very ordinary and certainly not worth the standard menu price. Much of it was cheap supermarket quality (e.g. bright pink taramasalata!) The atmosphere and style of the room was also somewhat cafeteria-like, with bright lighting which did nothing... More

My daughter saw paninis advertised on the board in the window & convinced me to give it a try. She had a ham & cheese and I tried their lentil soup. Both were really tasty but the approx $30 bill was way too much for what we had. She had an iced tea & I a small bottle of sparkling... More

While I do not doubt their food may well be fine later in the day, the brunch was very disappointing. It was not cooked correctly and was frankly tasteless. The service was slow and almost rude. And worst of all, the selection on the menu was rather dire.

We usually try to have lunch at the Copper Kettle when we visit Cambridge and it never disappoints. The food is tasty (especially the Brie and Bacon Paninis and the Mare Jacket Potato) and reasonably priced and the service is friendly. Lovely place!

My wife, daughter and I called in for an early light dinner after a day around Cambridge.The restaurant was quiet around 6pm on a Saturday. We enjoyed the Mediteranean style of food and the attentive and friendly service. We all really enjoyed our meal with a view of Kings College. The kebabs were lovely, the wine and soft drinks excellent... More

Called in for a meal after a tour of Cambridge, saw it was a different cuisine than we are used to. We were very well pleased by the food and the very reasonable prices. Service was not too fast and very friendly, can highly recommend the moussaka it was delicious.

We're pretty much "regulars" at this restaurant whenever we have the fortune for a spot of shopping in Cambridge. I usually have the meze from the light bites and my other half has a jacket potato with chilli. Very good value, tasty food and very good service.

The Agora @The Copper Kettle is a restaurant located in a priviledged location (in front of the King's College) run by Turkish and offering a mix of British pub food and Mediterranean/Turkish food (mostly the first at lunch, the second for dinner). The location of the restaurant is unbeatable. However, the food is below standards. We asked for different classics:... More
