Fitzbillies - Trumpington Street
A real Cambridge institution, Fitzbillies was established in 1920 and has become famous for its mouth-wateringly sweet and sticky Chelsea buns. Set in the heart of the city, this beautiful shop is tastefully decorated with splashes of Cambridge blue and split into a stylish 100-seater café and a relaxed coffee bar.
Brunch is served everyday until 4pm. On the menu, healthy options like granola and avocado on toast sit alongside indulgent options such as the full Fitzbillies breakfast and eggs Benedict. Why not combine your meal with a Bloody Mary or a refreshing Mimosa? Lunchtime visitors are offered an array of homemade sandwiches and salads as well.
In addition to Fitzbillies’ Chelsea buns, there’s a huge range of other cakes on offer. For special occasions, afternoon tea at Fitzbillies is a must: guests can enjoy delicate finger sandwiches as well as scrumptious miniature cakes and scones, with a glass of Champagne.
Excitingly, there’s now a second branch across town in Bridge Street, serving the same delicious coffee and cakes and a range of simple savoury food from the counter. Fitzbillies doesn’t take bookings, so make sure to drop by when you’re in the area and you won’t be disappointed.
