Espresso Library

A new Cambridge favourite, super stylish Espresso Library finally opened its doors in February 2015, after an awful lot of anticipation. It proved worth the wait: as well as serving up great coffees, they offer a menu bursting with local, organic and seasonal produce, all served up in their gorgeous cafe. Come the weekend, the brunch menu features deliciousness like mashed avocado on sourdough toast with spiced chickpeas, and a mean Welsh Rarebit. For something sweet, opt for their deluxe take on porridge, which comes laden with dates, banana and honey. Brunch perfection. 

Afternoon Tease

Since opening in October 2013, Afternoon Tease on King Street has won the heart of many a local foodie, not least for its brilliant brunches. The menu is ever changing, but regular favourites include River Farm Smokery smoked salmon with free range scrambled eggs on Dovecote Bakery English muffins, sweetcorn fritters with halloumi, roasted cherry tomatoes and home-made basil and mint pesto, and the insanely good breakfast burrito.

The coffees too are without doubt some of the best in town, and there’s a range of Kandula teas on offer. 

Sticky Beaks

The café menu changes through the week, with everything from healthy brunches and wholesome hot dishes for lunch, to indulgent cakes and puddings.  They make everything by hand in the on-show kitchen and source ingredients from trusted local suppliers, plus they have a licence to serve alcohol with food so you can even relax with a glass of wine over lunch. Never again be tempted by a chain in Cambridge city centre – head to Stickybeaks for lunch, brunch or just a big slice of cake.
