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??

I'm a regular customer in Savino's since years, although yesterday my "coffee time" has been not pleasent as usual. I asked Luca, a staff member, for a coffee a bit shorter than a double espresso. We didn't immediatly understand each other about what type of coffee I was asking for and he suddenly (looking annoyed) said to me: "Here we... More

Doesn't look much from the outside but Savinos serves the best coffee in Cambridge, and fantastic cakes and snacks, in a lovely warm and friendly atmosphere. And it could not be more central. We love it.

I enjoy coming here as the staff are so friendly and it has a great atmosphere. They also do tasty chocolate croissants! It is nice to find a coffee place that is not part of a mass chain.
