“Ugly building, great view.”

Grads Cafe University Centre
Ranked #18 of 30 Coffee & Tea in Cambridge
Restaurant details
Reviewed March 5, 2014

I’ve been visiting the Grad Pad for over thirty years. It doesn’t change much. The building is still ugly, but the views are great and the coffee is so much better now. The people are younger and noisier than I remember and there a more graduates with babies than there used to be.

Is a real nice cafe, just on river cam -get good view of the river, punting and the garden. If you are not in hurry, prefer couches on the back rather than tables in front.

Food and coffee are pretty average. The sandwich selection is poor and I have to say the service was pretty bad when I went, but the view is fabulous and there is so much space. Good for meetings, social gatherings or sitting and nursing a cup of coffee while working.

As far as I know you have to be or have been a member of the University to use the 'Grad Pad' but anyway the cafe at the top of the building has excellent coffee and a great view of the river. It also has newspapers to read. Go if you can.

Delicious lunch in what must be one of Cambridge's best kept secrets - do you have to be a member of senate to get in?
