This place was recommended to us by a tour guide who told us that they served the very best 'Chelsea Buns' and had celebrity endorsements. We decided to have lunch here but wished we hadn't in the end. We had to queue for a table...More

We've been going to Fitzbillies on and off for 50 years. Its latest incarnation is a very busy coffee shop and cafe, popular with students and visitors. Our lunch was good and the staff friendly. Queueing for only two toilets was a negative.

The food here is very good if a little over priced but it is a famous café. Often need to queue. Lovely for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Not the best coffee in Cambridge though!

Great selection for breakfast. Lovely coffees and homemade pastries and bread. Next door shop include a nice selection of cakes and cookies. Seam to have a nice area for lunch too, we never managed to try it.

Popped in after a few years without doing so and Fitzbillies still retains the magic. Although slightly expensive it is well worth the money. The whole family were charmed even my 3 year old son. Staff were very good too.

Visited with the family for a few cakes and drinks as I have many times before. The staff are all so friendly and welcoming and the cakes were outstanding. I will be certainly returning.
