We stopped here for lunch on our Easter travels. Cambridge is such a lovely town and it was pumping. There was a good variety of food available. Unfortunately our experience was very disappointing. The fish burger was greasy reheated freezer food with some unusual fried...lattice potato slices. The bun was fresh & good selection of sauces. The french toast was stale tasting bread cooked in a muffin tin with undercooked bacon, maple syrup and some edible flowers. It looked pretty, shame about the taste. Expensive for what you get. We will not return.More

Muffin lovers - must visit! Freshly baked, crunchy top, soft inside, moist and delicious... you don’t find muffins this yummy very often.

This popular spot offers a great selection of cabinet food and off the menu choices. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. The food and drinks great and the service was quick and friendly.

Overpriced, below average food. The mushroom on toast was oily, the big breakfast was served with a supermarket sausage and hash brown. Only the coffee was decent.

The food here is ok but nothing special. My husband's big breakfast was fine but functional. Our child's hotcakes were very obviously from a supermarket packet. They were served with ice cream, which was too icy, like it had been kept too long in the...freezer. My Parmesan Hashcakes were overcooked and I couldn't taste any parmesan at all. The guacamole was strange, a green paste with hardly any flavour. The poached eggs were cooked fine. I think we could have made a better choice for our lunch stop.More

I went in the other day and when i walked in and started looking at the cabinet and i over heard the owner absolutely screaming at a young girl and shouting “stop crying” when i heard this i walked straight out, its unacceptable

Visited the deli this morning for breakfast and a smoothie, when the smoothie came all it tasted of was ice I went back in to ask for a different smoothie or drink. The owner then came out to my table with my original smoothie and...said “that’s just how the smoothie tastes, they come pre packed and just get mixed with ice” I then said could I please change the drink or get a refund as drinking ice was not what I wanted on a cold morning. She then began to shout at me saying that there’s no way I could get a refund or a different drink I just had to deal with it, overall the owner is extremely rude and has very bad customer service. Food then came out and was average paid $24 for a big breakfast which consisted of a few eggs and some bacon with some pre cooked sausages and one piece of toast. Would not recommend this place, the young girls were very polite and seemed to look embarrassed but not surprised by the owners carry on as if this was a usual thing when customers complained about something.More

The mixed berry dark chocolate muffin caught my husband's eye but he dare not buy it. You see, quite often he will see food that looks amazing but doesn't live up to the hype. This is the first time the visual yumminess also delivered on...the taste buds. Great coffee to boot.More
