Trendy and tasty

We had breakfast at this American-style coffee shop and the food was tasty, the hot chocolate better than average, and reasonably priced. Also had good service.

These folks roast their own coffee beans. They're serious about coffee. It's not a chain, and it doesn't feel like one. It serves the best coffee in Cambridge.

Looking for a light snack on a Sunday lunchtime, and not wanting to frequent the chains, I came across Hot Numbers, which at least seemed to have some space free. I ordered a toasted smoked chicken panini and a 10 oz no-milk coffee (what everybody else calls an Americano). The sandwich went straight in the grille and arrived within 5... More

Good food, friendly staff, comfortable seating, local guitar sound was played (not live), local art on the wall - a perfect start for a Sunday morning in Cambridge. Espresso is a bit sour, but not bitter at all. Cappuccino is well made! Croissants are fantastic.

Heard good reports about the coffee and was suitably impressed when I visited. Quality product served professionally with a degree of care. My only gripe, and the reason why I won't be visiting again is the layout of the cafe. 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.
