A very bright coffee and food outlet in new area of Cambridge. Very pleasant company and the seating was very good, service excellent. I would recommend this for food or coffee.

I've eaten here a few times and the food is good and interesting. There is sometimes a DJ on the decks and it's always busy when I've visited. Great quality and service.

I had a fish fillet here: it was brilliant and generous. The sides were large and there was a lot of food left over. There should have been a bit of direction from the waitress. We had a couple of vegetarians with us and they...More
