“Lovely place for a coffee”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

This is a really cute cafe located in the heart of Cambridge. It makes the most delicious coffee's and I am a big fan of the hot chocolates. There is indoor and outdoor seating and it is lovely to sit outside during the summer (although outdoor seating is limited). The staff are really friendly and always have a smile! I once shared a slice of ginger cake with a friend and it was delicious, I believe it was home made. This has to be one of my favourite coffee shops in Cambridge, beats the chain cafes any day!

“Superb Coffee”
Reviewed May 4, 2012

Found this by chance as we walked to Christ's Pieces . . .what a find. Excellent coffee, even do green tea!

Can sit in or take away . . . and really nice to find somewhere that is not a chain.

“Excellent coffee in central Cambridge”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

I've been going here for many years, and have always enjoyed the coffee - they take care over it even when there's quite a queue. For a long time it was, I think, the best coffee in Cambridge. It hasn't gone down in quality, but fortunately there are other good ones now too! (Though mostly a little bit further from the centre). The pastries, and the meals (panini, salads etc) at Savino's are always tasty.

The only downside from my point of view if you're planning to eat, or meet someone, is that it's fairly small and you can't always be sure of getting a table.

“A surprisingly good place for a coffee”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

This is actually quite a surprise. Nothing much to look at, not in an espcially nice location (near the bus station) but quite frankly they seem to serve the best cup of coffee around. Far better than any of the expensive coffee chains that are near by. If you want a real treat have an Italian hot chocolate... you need a spoon to 'drink' it with, but it is delicious.

“An authentic taste Italy”
Reviewed February 14, 2012

I have been going regularly to Savino's over the years and I am still very much impressed by the quality and authenticity of its coffees and hot chocolate, and by the freshness and taste of their panini. Do not miss!
