I popped in here today to grab something to take out - coffee and a sandwich. Both were great but even better was the friendly, happy service from the barista. Having a quick chat made me feel like a regular (that I could easily become one!) and brightened my day immeasurably. Do yourself a favour and visit these guys if... More

Best coffee and croissants in Cambridge! It's my preferred place to meet people and I always get my take-away coffee there. The service is always good and friendly, the ambience buzzy but not distracting if you're having a conversation, and the food is tasty and good value.If I stumbled across this cafe in a place I was visiting I'd be...

If you are looking for a truly well prepared and solely to your preferences and taste cup of Italian coffee in Cambridge you just got to pop to Savino's! Right in the city centre next to the John Lewis and major bus stop. Certified Illy coffee made to every preference you might express. Lovely, friendly and quick to serve staff.... More

A great little place. Excellent coffee, an impressive range of good quality snacks, pastries, biscuits and light meals with a genuine Italian influence. Hard to beat for what it provides. It is so popular and a small venue that you do feel a little cramped when it's full and that's most days. Reception is warm and friendly

One of the best cafes in Cambridge. This is a small cafe, so don't even think about it if you're with the family and laden with shopping bags. It's also not the sort of place where you would linger for hours. So if you're looking for the kind of cafe where you can curl up on a comfy sofa and... More

I have been coming here for years and will continue to do so. I've moved away now but always make sure I stop for a coffee and chocolate croissant when I'm there! Amazing coffee, family owned business and they don't charge the extortionate prices of Starbucks and Costa!

Shared excellent cappuccino with a friend in the sunshine today. Well worth a visit even if you are not just waiting for a bus (of which there are many in close proximity).

We were trawling around for a really good cappuccino and heard some Italian youngsters chatting at a pavement table. We followed our gut instinct and took the next table which became available. Two cappuccinos each later we were glad we had. What is it about Italian run coffee shops? Is it the charming staff? Is it the coffee? The Barista?... More

The pastries and paninis are amazing too. Staff are all sound as a pound and mostly Italian which says a lot about the quality of the coffee. Cappuccinos are always a winner.
