“Tour de France Cambridge”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Visited Cafe Sililia the day of the Tour, sat enjoying excellent coffee, rhubarb sorbet and the most delicious cakes. The pistachio cake is sublime, I will go back for more. The day had been crazy for the cafe, starting very early this morning, we arrived late afternoon just as the tour arrived in London, we could just see the big screen and hear the commentary sitting in the shade enjoying the food and atmosphere.

“Definitely not Italian coffee quality”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Although, I have visited few times, I am getting a bit disappointed by this place. It's really expensive, there is not much choice and portion are in limited sizes, mainly big, which goes with big price. Taste of coffee is far from the original italian coffee so definitely room for improvement!

Anthony D, Owner at Caffe Sicilia, responded to this review, 6 July 2014
Our coffee is not what you would typically find in Italy, because it is Sicilian. Therefore you are completely correct, it is far from 'the original Italian coffee' (which exact coffee you refer to is unclear to me). Our coffee prices reflect various costs and superior quality of the product, anybody who knows or appreciates the hard work involved in a running an independent coffee shop will appreciate this, and also that pricing is based competitively on the local average. Therefore, I can assure you, it is not 'really expensive', our coffee receives constant fantastic and positive feedback. Perhaps you would be more suited to one of the chain coffee shopswhere the prices are lower and would better suit your palate.

Our wide range of food is homemade with high quality ingredients, therefore once again pricing reflects this plus that of local competition, and I believe we sit no higher than other establishments price wise. Once again I am sure you will find some food to better suit your requirements in one of the chain establishments.

We always welcome feedback so if you are willing to be more specific as to how you believe our coffee has room for improvement please do mention it next time you are in, I'll buy you a coffee don't worry!

Regards
Anthony

“Service with a smile love the coffee”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

Hot day passed by, popped in what treat. Cappuccino and pistachio, almond and chocolate cheese cake. Such lovely service. Smallish premises, some outside tables. Lots of people getting takeouts a nice feeling to this place. Fantastic and reasonable prices a great change from the big chains. Long may you prosper.

“With a smile”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

It's nice to be greeted by friendly staff when you visit - and this place is good at that. They we're let down by the speed of the food delivery - we seemed to be waiting a long time. The coffee was OK, the prices a little high - Cambridge seems to think its London!
