We went to Fitzbillies every time we went to visit our son in Cambridge and it never disappoints. Fabulous cakes in an airy room and lovely service. Go to the main one in Trumpington St rather than Bridge St as they have far more cakes!

Fitzbillies is a delightful and quintessential cafe/restaurant and a must go place for anyone visiting the city. The Chelsea buns are delicious and world famous. You can also get them to go if you want more of a good thing.

This place is over hyped, but I still like it. They do excellent carrot cake. Shame they shut at 6pm and that they had run out of sausage rolls and brownies at 5.30pm!

Amazing Cappuccinos and the yogurt & granola hits the spot! Perfect for a morning, or afternoon pick me up!
