5 New Cafes in Cambridge
Looking for a nice place to meet up with a friend for a coffee or bite to eat? Fancy something new? We’ve got some excellent news. There have been quite a few new openings in Cambridge city centre and a bit further away recently. Meet the 5 new cafes in Cambridge.
Deluna Cafe on Burleigh Street
Tucked away in Burleigh Street at the Grafton Centre, this delightful pretty cafe opened its doors in August. Serving delicious cakes, coffee, smoothies and Eastern Mediterranean-inspired brunch and lunch.
It’s all about chocolate at Knoops
Soon to open in the quirky cobbled street Green Street, Knoops Chocolate is renowned for making delicious steaming cups of chocolate, also known as ‘Knoopology’. It’s the art of crafting your perfect chocolate drink, not just in their stores but at home too.
Think of the process like an experiment; first, choose from our range of ten different % chocolate flakes. Then, pick your milk – dairy and plant-based all work to make hot and cold drinks. Finally, prepare any extras to add – a pinch of sea salt or some freshly grated orange zest are good starting points.
The hidden gem in Stapleford – the Granary Cafe
This lovely hidden gem is a stone’s throw away from Cambridge city centre. Part of Stapleford Granary Art Centre, it is not only a perfect spot for refreshments when visiting one of the free exhibitions or concerts on a Sunday morning or in the evening, but to meet up with friends too.
Alongside a carefully curated gift shop selling books, prints, cards, candles, ceramics, children’s gifts and much more. While there, don’t forget to wander down to the Orchard. And for our youngest visitors, there’s always a fun ‘Curious About…’ activity pack to pick up and discover something new.
It’s all about plants at The Urban Butterfly Cafe
Overlooking Parkers Piece, this family-run, independent, quirky cafe on Regent Street, focuses on flavour and freshness for every palate. They bring plant-rich food to Cambridge’s city centre.
Whether you are looking for Buddha bowls, natural ice cream, artisan roasted coffee or a cheeky samosa, there is something for everyone at Urban Butterfly.
Tawa Bites by Tawa Kitchen
Watch this space! We’re very excited about the upcoming opening of Tawa Bites on Hill Road by one of our favourite Indian restaurants!
Tawa is renowned for promoting wellness inside and out, taking the ayurvedic principle of balance in body and mind and applying this to our cooking. Their kitchen moves away from the format of stereotypical Indian restaurants serving heavy dishes concentrating on curry and rice. What they eat at home and offer at Tawa is mostly plant-based, nutritious and created to fuel your day.
Grab a coffee at the Leisure Centre at Press
PRESS coffee is the new juice, protein shakes and coffee bar on Hills Road!
Saffron Carey, the owner, spotted a niche in Cambridge after spending a lot of time in London. There are many cafes, but hardly anyone offers a good selection of freshly pressed juices and protein shakes.
Press Coffee is located at the square at the Leisure centre, just a stone’s throw away from the station. This sustainable coffee and juice bar offers the finest artisan coffee served with free milk alternatives (Oatly Barista Oat milk and Alpro Barista Coconut milk).
Looking for something more refreshing or a booster? Saffron whisks up delicious healthy fresh-pressed organic juices, wellness shots and protein-packed shakes.
Besides her tasty toasties, we fell in love with the loaded toast. Packed with lots of flavours and definitely something different from the regular toasted cheese sandwich.
Amelie at the Cambridge Cookery School
Amelie is well-known for their crispy Flam-kuche, and delicious food served at the Food Court at the Grafton Centre. They have now opened their second restaurant!
Alex and Regis Crepy of Amelie Restaurants have taken on a residency at the award-winning Cambridge Cookery School & gourmet Café established by Tine Roche and tucked away in the heart of Cambridge.
Alex and Regis will manage the Café offering brunch and lunch with a tempting choice of freshly home-cooked dishes as well as the Flam-kuche, their speciality flatbread that originates from the Alsace in eastern France.
This Flam-Kuche is an ultra-thin, light, yeast-free dough spread with crème fraiche and a tasty combination of toppings, then cooked in minutes until crispy.
