Just best coffee I could find in Cambridge. Go for capuchino without any toping, not to spoil the taste.

Had the simply the best caffè macchiato for ages. Not a miniature cappuccino -- but, as it should be, a wonderfully flavoured espresso marked with a tiny amount of foamed milk. Perfect. Our first visit, but we'll in future make a point of getting to...More

Very nice homely place. Can recommend it to all those who are fed up with the impersonal run of the mill coffee shop chains. Really friendly chatty guy, so watch the time if you need to catch a train 😀 Great custom made GF sandwich....More
