Café culture in Cambridge

Over the last few years we have seen a rise of funky cafés opening their doors in Cambridge. Much welcomed by us as you can’t have enough of cafés to top up your caffeine shot or something nice to eat. They all have their own character. Some are retro, others focus on vinyl and we even have a café with tea cocktails and Dim sum!
