I've been back a few times since my last review, and have never been disappointed. The pavement tables are justly popular, with their ringside view of Cambridge street life and King's College. Still one of my favourite places in Cambridge for a coffee or a snack. There are also some substantial dishes, such as the lamb shank - a huge... More

I have been going to the Copper Kettle for 30 years! It is superbly situated in King's Parade overlooking King's College. The restaurant is beautifully maintained and the staff are extremely friendly and attentive. This is a family owned business with husband and wife and their two sons running it and often other family members. The food is superb and... More

I love this place. If you can get a seat by the window and people watch those outside. Almost opposite Kings College. Good Menunwith specials and to suit all tastes. We are always made welcome whether it is to eat or just a coffee maybe. Very busy on Saturdays and lunchtime.

Popped in for some teas and cakes and were not disappointed. The atmosphere was lovely, the food being served around us also looked very delicious. The teas we had were up to standard and served nicely but the scones were to die for! They were made perfectly and served warm with the best cream and jam! Please keep these scones... More

Directly opposite the most iconic building in cambridge, kings college, it has lovely views. The staff are also lovely and friendly. The menu confused me a little at first but then i later realised the food is a mix of turkish and english eg fish and chips or meze. Worth trying if you like the relaxed cafe type.

My family and I came here around 21:30, looking for a place to get dessert and drinks. The owner greeted us at the front and brought us a table, even though it was clear they were closing up before we walked in. They served us quickly and with so many friendly smiles and conversation! The Chocolate Sweet Treat they serve... More
