One of my favourite cafe's in Cambridge. Food consistently good, service great, venue great - they have an outdoor area that includes a courtyard and the grassed area in front of the café - great for dogs!! Always happy to provide a drinking bowl for our dog.

Excellent visit every time, gluten free option too. Great coffee. Outdoor seating could be better. Closed on Mondays which has caused me to choose another venue!

Great counter selection, good coffee, good menu (a little pricey), slow delivery. Have been to this cafe many times and it remains my pick Cambridge cafes. I'd give it 5 stars if my coffee would turn up in a reasonable time. They don't have a dedicated barrister so front of house make coffee while serving and tending the counter. Most... More

Always good food and good coffee every time we go, keep it up. Food always looks and tastes freshly made and has the homemade feel. On the pluses outside of the food, great parking being off the New World car park, dog friendly with both a grassed area and outside patio and they make your dog feel at home with... More
