"Ask the local"
"I'm a foodie and being relatively new to Cambridge, I am still discovering the café and restaurant offering in this awesome little town. One of my go to's is The Bikery Café, Samara and her team never disappoint with an ever changing, fresh and delicious menu. The coffee is awesome too! It's a treasure and a definite favourite!"
