This is a favourite local cafe and delicatessen where the coffee and light lunches are always delicious. Home made soup is a speciality. Do try the parmigiana! Cake...yum! The Italian proprietor imports his supplies direct from Italy and also runs the family bakery so the bread is always fresh and tasty. A wonderful range of products is available, often things...

The deli has grown into a local hub and, personally, I feel truly, incredibly grateful that Rocco and his close-knit team are there for the community. They are dedicated to bringing the best ingredients to the humble Cherry Hinton Road area and welcome you always with a big smile.....thank you!

We stop in Balzano's every time we are near Cambridge. Great selection in the deli and the staff are friendly. No matter how busy it is, they take time to greet us and smile. The quality of their goods is excellent and the prices are reasonable. One of the best places to stock up on Italian groceries.

I come here occasionally for coffee. It's light and airy and the coffee is good quality. The croissants are however lacklustre! Lots of Italian goodies although many of them are available at my amazing corner shop for half the price. The fresh bread is very good and the delicatessen items look good if a little pricey. Nice place to meet... More

Always good for a coffee and a cake. Staff are pleasant and don't rush you around. A good place for a leisurely chat and/or business meeting. Since I last reviewed the garden has closed, which is sad. Access from the carpark is now around the building.

I tend to come here on a monthly basis and it's generally busy and for good reason. They do a good selection of beverages, Italian food and pastries. It's all freshly made and you can see the activity in the back room. They offer WiFi which is a bit slow so it's not the ideal place if you are relying... More

This deli cafe raises the quality of food on Cherryhinton Feeder road to Cambridge to continental level. It provides sandwich combos and dishes for men who lunch lite not to mention yummy cakes for mummies not all yummy and some who may not be yummy for much longer. OK for me happy with a gloopy gateau au chocolat and four... More

This is a perfect place for a nice cup of coffee. We sat outside which was very pleasant. Everything in Balzano's looks fresh and tasty (we bought some tomatoes that were expensive but delicious, eggs, gorgonzola cheese, dark chocolate, etc). Recommended if you are in the neighborhood.
