It's a lovely and possibly the oldest pub in Cambridge. In the oldest part of the pub, you can see the ceiling inscriptions from airmen from the WWII, in which the number of squad is inscribed with candles. The food is decent but it's a very cozy place to have a beer and with a terrace.
Occupying a pleasant location in the heart of the pedestrian walkway of Sussex Street and a little bit away from the beautiful but very touristy Sidney Street, Tatties is an extremely friendly snack bar-restaurant. Popular and cheap, we particularly love its umbrella-covered terrace, as well as its traditional, simple but very hearty fare. We tried the excellent jacket potatoes and smoothies. Delicious!
Clowns Coffee Bar is found a little away from the incessant hustle and bustle of historic Cambridge, and makes for a nice stop during your tour of the city. The storefront is nice and beckons you to enter, which we did in a heartbeat. The food is great; we had gnocchi and lasagna (only 5 pounds!) and a nicely toasted paninis for only 3.5 pounds. It's a nice, cheap place for a quick lunch.
The Coffee Shop is a nice little cafe halfway up King Street, a little bit away from the crazy tourist bustle of Kings Parade or Sidney Street. They have a wide selection of high-quality coffees and teas both in bags and in bulk. There are also many accessories including tea balls (those infusers that hook onto the side of your porcelain cup) and souvenir tea sets shaped like double-decker buses of the typical London phonebooth. A great shop to grab some unique gifts and it's not too expensive.
Auntie's Tea Shop is a lovely little tea room located at the corner of Kings Parade and Market Street just in front of the main entrance of the beautiful and world-famous King's College. Simple and unpretentious, Aunties Tea Shop is a cute place with his little nice terrace and waitresses in traditional black skirts and white apron. They have a large menu of hot drinks (the tea and hot chocolate are especially delicious) as well as fresh, tasty cakes (try the crumble!) and quick, easy lunch dishes like baguettes. A nice place for a well-deserved break in the heart of the city.
Le Patissier Nestled is a pleasant restaurant-tearoom on beautiful St John's Street just opposite the main entrance of St John's College in Cambridge. Its lovely terrace is a great place to watch the crowds coming and going to admire the magnificent monuments of St John's College, but it's also a great place to try one of the delicious cakes on offer. We also loved the wide selection of salads and pizzas, all at reasonable prices (given the location).
The Mitre is one of the oldest pubs in the beautiful city of Cambridge and is located on Bridge Street. It was in fact founded in 1754 and proudly displays this fact on its storefront. The cuisine is traditional English (the fish and chips were excellent, as was the baked potato with baked beans) and the prices are not too high (5 pounds for fish and chips).
