A lunchtime treat for office workers, tourists, students, in fact anyone who loves food that's clearly been prepared by people who love food too!

I have visited this cafe lots over the years and the food is always excellent. The coffee, pastries and bread are good and there is usually a selection of delicious special dishes of the day plus a range of tasty salads. It's handy for the botanic gardens too!

Without a doubt my favourite place in Cambridge to eat - great value, amazing French food - for both meat eaters and vegetarians and wonderful warm friendly service.

A locally renowned simple café/restaurant. Cafeteria style, friendly service, very busy at lunchtime. Has brilliant steak frites.

The counter is inviting with lots of specials on display, however the experiences deteriorates from there. I sat down for 10 minutes whilst the staff simply looked at me before I took the initiative and went to the counter to order. I worked out my own change since the woman on the cash desk seemed incapable of basic maths. I ordered the duck salad. What arrived was a "salad" of packet grated carrot and lettuce mixed with some tinned sweetcorn and an overcooked microwaved duck leg plonked on top. Very disappointed since I have been to this restaurant before and had far better food and service.
