Fitzbillies, with its beautiful art nouveau shop front, is a Cambridge institution. Its famously sticky chelsea buns have been made and sold on the premises since 1921. No trip to Cambridge is complete without a visit.
The cake shop, coffee counter and cafe/restaurant are open for coffee, lunch and afternoon tea 7 days a week. Dinner is served on Thursday, Friday & Saturday evenings from 6pm.
All our cakes are made on the premises. Savoury food is prepared from scratch using seasonal ingredients from local suppliers. Our coffee is supplied by East London artisan roastery, Climpson & Sons. Lunch in the cafe features savoury tarts, pies and sausage rolls, salads, soups and English cheeses and ham, accompanied by fantastic homemade soda bread.
On Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings Fitzbillies turns into a restaurant, featuring the cooking of head chef Rosie Sykes. We could tell you it's some of the best food available in Cambridge, but we'll leave it to the national press reviewers:
"A rare exception to the rule that the finer a town's university, the worse its restaurants'. Matthew Norman, the Telegraph
'Simple, unadorned good taste extends to the menu, which could be subtitled 'things you really want to eat. Seasonality and regionality are assumed rather than trumpeted and there's a distinctly British feel to many of the dishes." Tracey MacLeod, The Independent.
