“Lovely Sandwich - Great Service!”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Visited on Saturday around 1:30 and the cafe was very busy. I wanted a take-away sandwich (which wasn't offered on the menu) but on request it was no problem. Because of how busy they were at the time, I was advised there might be a 10-15 minute wait, however after just 5 minutes the sandwich was given to me & I was on my way.

It was well filled & delicious and the service from everyone that I spoke to in the cafe was great. Oh, and they correctly didn't charge me VAT as it was a take-away order!
Will come back here for a "proper" visit next time I'm nearby.

“Brilliant food, great value and our kids were very welcome”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We recently visited Cambridge to catch up with family. We were looking for a friendly coffee shop, where our children would be welcome, and we could have a great breakfast. We all absolutely loved Arches, the service was friendly and the food was simply brilliant! We are absolute converts, and look forward to going back. Thank you to all the staff, and we would not hesitate to recommend Arches to anyone.
