Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

when we go into Cambridge we always call in to Shelly and Sarah's for a lovely Bacon roll and a mug of tea. we even take our grandchildren there as they love the food and drinks. The prices are very good and reasonable and nothing...is to much trouble for them.More

This is a place to visit for a great bit of lunch when in Cambridge City centre. We have been here as a couple for omelettes, burgers, hot dogs and steak baguettes. The food has been consistently great and has seating in the market place...to take in the true Cambridge ambience. A large amount of locals visit so we believe this is testament to how good the food is. The is plenty of seating with space for disabled people. A great selection on the menu at a very good price - Steak Baguette with onions for £7. The steak was done spot on! The ladies were polite and friendly. We could not ask for more thank you. Walk past the lights and fancy boards and give this place a visit on the market square. Great food, good value and friendly service. If you are a couple, family of seeing a loved one graduate sample the food here.More

Great friendly service from Shelley and Sarah offering fresh local produce. It is a must for people wishing to relax or simply a quick delicious menu with limited time. This is my first port of call in Cambridge. I enjoyed a very moist tasty cheese...bacon burger with fries and a coke. Prior to this i enjoyed the double burger which almost beat me. Until you dine here you will never properly enjoy a burger. I note a couple enjoying steak baguettesMore

I work in the city centre, and so this has become one of my regular morning spots! The coffee is brilliant, the bacon sarnies are fantastic, the people and the service is amazing! Whether its first thing in the morning, or stopping there for a...quick bite for lunch - cannot recommend them highly enough! Head down and try it for yourselves! Can't wait to be able to get fresh coffee and a sandwich first thing in the morning come winter, will be the most perfect start to the day!More

I now work in the town centre and visit this place frequently. Often i just want a tea, it costs a quid, half the price they ask in the coffee shops. They get a steady trade, including many regulars. I watch people coming out of...the passage opposite, eating their big macs and people coming from the other side of the market eating a burger from the "gourmet' stall. These guys are missing a trick - tuck into Shelly and Sarahs cheese burger and see the light! The sausage baguettes are huge and the bangers are good quality. The bacon sarnies are packed. They have a few tables and chairs and if you look behind their wagon there are picnic benches supplied by the council. While you eat look ip at the sky and you may be treated to a view of the towns Pereguin falcons. The three members of staff a freindly and helpful, its a great little place, espcially if you want good grub on a budget.More

As market food goes this is definitely the best we have encountered. The fare is served in good time, it's fresh, the baguettes are warm and the fillings are delicious and all at a very good price. Every time we go to Cambridge we always...have lunch at Shelley and Sarah's and we have never been disappointed. Well worth the five stars.More
