Very cosy. Very friendly and polite workers. The fruit scones are so delicious! The cappuccino too. It has a beautiful view over the bridge and church. If you are in the corner, definitely go have a bite and a drink.

A happening place; especially in the mornings for coffeeholics. They offer delicious breakfast rolls, muffins, etc.

A very quaint little cafe located near the river. They make a delicious London Fog made with almond milk! I am addicted! I am looking forward to trying some of your other vegan snacks!

The coffee here is very high quality. The scones and muffins are excellent and home made. It has a homey atmosphere. Nice patio overlooking the square. You can buy superior coffee here for your home. And it is local. Not part of a conglomerate

Love this place, reminds me of my favourite Cafe from my childhood. Great fresh baked items, and other beverages. Love holiday specials, also they carry local milk that I buy weekly.

Check out Monogram down the street it's much better! They were nice here but it is cheap coffee (the same as subway).

When Grand Cafe opened its doors 13 years ago, we served Seattles Best coffee which was at the time, a high quality independently produced product that we and our customers were vey happy with.

I discovered this small quaint coffee shop when I first moved to Cambridge three years ago.. A little gem of a place situated at Queen's Square, with a view of the fountain and street for those who like to people watch while they sip their beverage or nibble on a pastry treat. They have all sorts of baked good to... More
