things to do in cambridge

If Coffee shops are what you are looking for for that all important pit stop and caffeine hit during your busy day….Cambridge has a plethora of them, great independents with great coffee and homemade cakes and more. The Things To Do In Cambridge team are always up for coffee and cake and we have some crackers here in and around the city.

Toms Cakes

Truly homemade cakes and biscuits at Tom’s, all Tom’s materials are locally sourced and boy, what the team here do with them is truly epic, wonderful mouthwatering treats. Breakfast and lunches are also served and there is a garden to enjoy as well. The team at Things To Do In Cambridge think Tom’s Victoria sponge is a delight to behold and should be eaten in great quantities.

Sticky Beaks

A popular, buzzy coffee shop in the city centre serving up a wide range of  homemade food and cakes and great coffee. They also hold regular cookery events.


Ciao Savino’s, a bustling authentic Italian coffee shop in the city centre . Great Italian coffee, snack food and cakes. Plenty of newspapers to help you pass the time and also great people watching.

Hot Numbers

A coffee shop with a twist, not only does Hot Numbers serve great coffee but you can also buy it at their roastery, snack on brunch…then on a Thursday and Friday evening it transforms into a Jazz and  Blues venue, dishing up hearty food from the kitchen or from the regular food truck that parks up outside, serving food while you listen and enjoy the music.

Bould Brothers

Serious about your coffee…then head here. Serving up specialty coffee that has been carefully and expertly sourced and prepared.

The Urban Shed

Things To Do In Cambridge love this quirky, fun coffee shop…who doesn’t want to chill and drink their coffee in an old airplane seat and there are some amazing retro bits and bobs, some which are for sale. A must for something different, great food as well.

Charlie’s Coffee Co.

Pizza and coffee…a match made in heaven me thinks!!!! Family run cafe that offers cakes, sandwiches and authentic stone baked pizza.

Urban Larder

What a great neighborhood coffee shop and deli…..serving cakes, epic toasties (Things To Do In Cambridge lovvvvvve a toastie) and great deli and the beauty of all this is you can treat yourself at the deli, take your goodies home and carry on with the party. What’s not to shout about!!!!
