“Amazing sandwiches and cool furnishings”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Try the beef with ciabatta bread it's awesome. Great things come from that little kitchen. The retro look and upcycled furniture are cool also. Enjoyed every visit!

“Best cafe in Cambridge”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Always a fantastic experience from beginning to end. Simon and Billy are always so friendly and welcoming. There is always a great place to sit, whether outside in the sun or inside, and the sandwiches, drinks and cakes are delicious. It's affordable too. Going to the Urban Shed is always the highlight of my day, my friends and I have had lots of special times there.

“Best place in Cambridge”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

This place was recommended by my neighbour. I see why. It has a calm and unique personality with a great relaxed atmosphere. Yes a personality. I'm so bored of all those dull places calling themselves cafes. I'm a bloke and don't want to sit on flimsy chairs drinking coffee out of flowery cups!
And I love the upcycling/recycling stuff. As for the vinyl! PERFECT! Its the kind of place that's cool to hang out in and you don't feel like you're in the way. Food is simple, superb and imaginative and not stupidly expensive like so many are around here. Only downside is the coffee hence the 4 stars. Sorry but it's not good nor made properly but don't let that put you off since I've discovered that most people here don't really know good coffee or how to make a proper flat white anyway. But here they do a decent sized mug of tea. All in all don't waste your time or money going anywhere else. They're just not worth it.

Reviewed 4 July 2014

Love these guys. Always get a friendly welcome (always end up talking shop whenever they aren't too busy!) and will always get a high quality lunch. I've taken several of my family, Girlfriend and friends to the place and they love what they are doing as much as I do. Best addition is a well dressed salad on the side. Recommend the milkshakes as they are in "vintage" milk bottles!

“Lovely unique cafe!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Really lovely and unique setting with lots of beautiful vintage furniture. The staff are kind and helpful. It's a fairly small cafe so perfect for a coffee with a couple of friends. The brownies are delicious!
