On my visit, there was a guy playing some cool jazz guitar: being a musician myself, it was very enjoyable as he was outstanding and it really helped create a great atmosphere. A good range of drinks at the bar, reasonably priced. Great place to come a a family. I want to go... More

This is a great choice for a simple meal in Cambridge in my opinion. It offers a very nice environment.

I have seen this coffee shop/bistro many times while visiting Cambridge and always wanted to try it. Today we made a choice over various other food options to go here... After looking at the menu we decided the food wasn't to our taste however after seeing a few plates come out we changed our minds and opted for burgers which... More

The food has been good every time I've visited. Greek salad is so full and colourful. The wraps and spicy fries are good too. Not too badly priced and nice if u can sit outside in the summer.

I recently revisited CB2 as I used to go there a lot. However, my last experience wasn't great and, unfortunately, this wasn't either. Since I was close by, it was the most convenient place to pop in for an ad hoc beverage with a friend. We both had the hot chocolate and it was, frankly, insipid and virtually undrinkable, made...

I’ve walked past CB2 many times and always thought I should give it a try – it looks inviting and I like to support independents. Recently we were trying to decide where to have a simple lunch and S suggested here. A good choice. The immediate impression was of a warm welcome and a relaxed atmosphere in unpretentious surroundings. We... More
