Review of M &S Cafe

M &S Cafe
Ranked #384 of 740 Restaurants in Cambridge
Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We visited after a walk around the Cambridge City Centre. The cafe was on the top floor of the M&S building. On arrival the cafe was very busy and all the staff appeared to be busy. All the tables were clear, but the floor was not. We had to ask a member of staff who was in the process of cleaning to clear up, which they did as soon as we asked.

There were some tables are at a window facing over the market, but all of these were full today.

There were plenty of cakes available at decent prices. It took a while longer than usual to get to the front of the queue. Once at the front, we were quickly served. Food and drink was tasty and of good quality.

Overall, the cafe was generally good and the staff were all working hard, but all the problems could be solved with a few more staff.

Good to be able to sit down, take the weight off your feet, and have a tea or coffee. The Cafe at M&S is large enough to take most people who go there, though there can be queues, and they have a reasonable selection. They didn't have 'toasted tea cakes', but I was able to get a fruit scone and jam. Table clearing/cleaning is sporadic. However the place serves its purpose.

Good place for a cuppa and a piece of cake after M & S shopping. Just a cafe - nothing much more to say really!

We often stop here for a quick snack and drink. It is always busy, tables not always cleared quickly enough. Sandwiches OK, scones good, tea OK, but coffee very weak and not particularly nice, the decaf is not good at all.

The M & S Cafe is situated in the heart of market square and overlooking the market. It is good for light meals or coffee and cakes. Both the food and service are great.
