When I visited it was pretty busy with plenty of students 'in residence', the table layout meant that our group,... More

Nice enough 'cool' venue in Trumpington Street, but I do find the coffee very bitter. I have a couple of colleagues who have said the same thing. I had tea today but this against the grain in a coffee house ..

I visited the new Hot Numbers on Trumpington Street yesterday and was sorely disappointed. Firstly, the service was lacklustre and incredibly slow. In fact, staff seemed hungover. Secondly, the food took ages to cook. I was hoping they were in the process of creating the most amazing bacon sarnie ever! Sadly, this was not the case; the bacon was burnt... More

Hot number is fantastic, it's my choice for coffee and atmosphere. The large tables make sharing space pleasurable, so it's a great place to work.

Me and my partner visited on a Sunday a week or so ago. We were both really impressed with the environment (the one off Mill Road), coffee and staff. it's a bit of a trek for us but we'll be sure to make it again soon. Well done on creating something so appealing.

We hadn't been to Cambridge for ages, and decided to try somewhere different for coffee, so we seeked out Hot Numbers in Gwydir St. A lovely building and busy which is normally a good sign. We ordered the large cappuccinos extra hot which at £2.90 you would expect to be large/ish, strong and extra hot. Sadly it was about the... More

I go to the Gwydir Street one most days early in the morning. The staff are great, the coffee is excellent and they will grind it for you to go. It's family friendly too.

This cafe is fairly new and a real find. Great location on trumpington st just beyond the really heaving bit of Cambridge, nice independent coffee shop feeling and very friendly with top quality coffee. If you want to chill on a weekend morning get there fairly early as it's deservedly popular. Highly recommend.
