Popped into Carringtons for a quick breakfast, asked for one egg, 2 slices of bacon, one sausage and some mushrooms and a cup of coffee, the cost of this came to £10.20. This cannot possibly be right can it?

Well I checked it was the right price. This is a basic self service restaurant not a five star hotel. When I said that I did think I would bother the girl was rude and unpleasant.

This cafeteria needs to sort out its pricing!

Despite having been in Cambridge for 3 years, I'd failed to spot this quirky hidden (almost!) cafe opposite the very visible cafe nero... until today after a recommendation from a friend! Its one of Cambridge's best hidden places, away from all the tourists who flock the major coffee chains nearby. The menu is surprisingly diverse despite the cafe being on the smaller side. The food was delicious, coffee was exceptionally good! Service was quick and non fussy. Had a good, filling lunch and coffee for around £8, which is relatively cheap (considering its Cambridge!).

This restaurant is downstairs and so is not easy to reach for people with walking diffecults, once down stairs is don't look very big so can look crowded, but walk pasted the servce counter and there is an area beyond with more sitting.
The food is in good portions and is will cooked and teasty. Some of the hot food is on the counter the rest is cooked to order, so if ordering a mix from the counter and cooked to order you can end up eatting your food on your own in a large group and when there very busy.
There is free WiFi but you need the code from the food counter after you have ordered your food.
Carrington's have always been in this spot for as far as I know 50+ years and well visited and used by the people who live and work in Cambridge
