I've had mixed experience finding good coffee in Cambridge, but Savino's was a delight. The fast and friendly barista served me the perfect macchiato with a glass of water. They use Illy coffee and I'm headed back there tomorrow!

Really nice to get away from standard high street chains. Good variety of food and nice to see correct spelling of panino.

I like my coffee and this is a must every time I visit Cambridge. It is cosy and can be hard to get into but the coffee (Illy) is made with attention and always tastes great. What more can I say? Well done guys and keep it up.

Savings is thoroughly unpretentious but serves the best Italian coffee in Cambridge it is a family business, now run by the third generation of Savinos, and well used by local people. It is often difficult to find a seat but has a good buzz. Being so near the bus station makes it a good stopping off place when arriving or... More

It's only a sandwich. Not the thing to say to these guys. They take a lot of care and pay attention to detail here. The result is delicious heartwarming food that just makes you feel good.

I've been here many times for the thick hot chocolate! Everyone I go with always loves it. Good service, friendly and close to the centre of Cambridge.

It's my cafe of choice in Cambridge if I'm on my own. A shot of espresso, pull up a stool by the side, a quick slurp and I'm ready to launch myself in the masses of chaotic shoppers. Perfect. When my children were very small and I needed a buggy to haul their paraphernalia around, it sometimes felt crowded and... More

We eat here a lot, salad and Panini's are great. Good quality ingredients in generous quantities. It's unpretentious but good. The coffee is delicious and service is quick. It is a very small place but I've always managed to get a seat even with a group of 9 people once.

Popped in yesterday whilst visiting Cambridge after a couple of days in the area. Lovely, friendly staff/owners and fantastic food and coffee (Illy). Much more chatty than the coffee bar/restaurant around the corner we popped into on our way out of Cambridge a couple of hours late. Maybe that's cos Saving s are Southern Italians??
