Nothing special

Quite good latte and the apple pie was okay but rather ordinary really and a fairly small portion. Waitresses quite bored and disinterested and service was very slow.

Had evening meal at agora at the copper kettle. Overpriced rubbish. Chicken agora. Few bits of diced chicken, rice and a few leaves. No sauce of any kind to take off the dryness of the meal. Not that you could call it a meal. Shame a lovely place like cambridge, and the great location of the copper kettle, which should... More

Good food. Had sandwiches and baguettes and they were very tasty. Good value and lovely location opposite the university. Really nice staff and lots of choice on the menu.

We were looking for a brunch stop and chose the Agora. Friendly and polite staff. We ordered breakfasts and were given a choice of how we wanted our eggs done and all were perfect. Food very nicely presented and healthy portions. Tea was hot in the pot and tasty. Have read other poorer reviews but will not stop me returning

Came here for a coffee with a view on a rainy day in Cambridge. A window seat affords you a brilliant view of Kings - the best you can get with a shot of caffeine.

Came here after looking for a breakfast cafe that was open at 10am Sunday and was not disappointed. The Full English breakfast was delicious and the coffee good too. We sat inside because it was a bit cool outside and did find it a bit noisy but the service was good and fast and would certainly go back there again.... More

My friends and I were looking for somewhere to go for breakfast and a passing local recommended The Copper Kettle to us as it is the best in the area but also warned us not to have high expectations. I cannot fault the location, it is opposite Kings College and has a great view. The restaurant was half full and... More

Good food at reasonable prices especially as its location is one of the most iconic of Cambridge. Staff were friendly and attentive. Club sandwich was fab and the lamb kebabs with yogurt very tasty. Good sized portions.PS as a bonus they do NHS discount!

The Copper Kettle is bang opposite Kings College, so it's a great position. We went in mid-morning and only wanted coffee, I thought they might want us to buy something more substantial but they were perfectly happy for us just to have coffee and enjoy the view. It's run by really friendly staff. Highly recommended, much more interesting than a... More

I've been going to the Copper Kettle since I was a student at Cambridge, and it's always great to revisit when I go back. They're a brilliant option for breakfast or lunch - average prices but large, tasty portions and friendly, professional staff. The huge jacket potatoes are a particular highlight, as are the bacon baguettes for breakfast. Their takeaway... More
