Classic coffee shop look ... and cool atmosphere

Good range of brew methods and spacious seating inside with seats out bsck in the sun away from the street. Coffee good if in the area but a bit of a trek from town.

I have to say, on a hot day, Hot Numbers has one of the best iced coffees I've had. Hot Numbers is certainly worth a trip if you are in the area, but I wouldn't make a special trip.

This is one of the best coffee I've tasted. I've visited both the locations - Gwydir St and Trumpington St cafes and they both impressed me with the quality of coffee and service. The staff was welcoming and seemed to enjoy what they are doing - basically making my day with a good cup of coffee :) The Gwydir St... More

Large bowl of granola topped with yogurt with berries and banana was excellent. One can choose the type and strength of coffee, which is roasted on the premises. Breakfast available from 7 a.m. on weekdays, and is open until 7 p.m. Opens a little later on Sat & Sun.

Lovely coffee, friendly staff, lovely things to eat, good jazz and a nice place to have a lazy breakfast - Love it! - don't like the shared preserves, it was better when they were individual

Small place tends to be busy ( a good sign) there is a seating area in the small garden at the back, mixture of people but not one... More

The coffee really is extraordinary. Very good indeed. Unfortunately we were a bit of a large group - 4 adults and 3 children. The ambience of the place was adults with lap tops and books so we decided to sit outside to leave them in peace! Alas sitting outside was insufficient. The children were well behaved and remained seated most... More

Hot Numbers is one of our favourite haunts in Cambridge. We discovered the Gwydir Street location some years ago, and have found we KEEP returning. The coffee is perfect - using their menu you choose the volume of milk/water to go with your espresso shot, rather than using general names (i.e. cappuccino, latte) however if you are unsure about what...
