You can’t beat a good brunch, and when it’s enjoyed alfresco in the sunshine, well that’s just even better! I’m actually a bit of a brunch fiend, and am always trying new recipes (read more about that here).

I headed to the Old Bicycle Shop cafe during a trip to Cambridge. I’d actually looked up some popular places to visit beforehand and this quaint little fellow kept popping up, so I decided arrange a visit.

The day was warm so without hesitation we opted for a table outside.

We placed our orders; two coffees, avo on toast and SHAKSHUKA! The shakshuka came with the dreamiest sourdough and plenty of béchamel sauce for optimum indulgence.

The outdoor seating area, although small, is scattered with gorgeous flowers and gives off a really intimate, secretive feel.


I can imagine that the festoon lighting that is draped around the overhead area gives off a fantastic atmosphere for early evening dinners or drinks.

The inside of the cafe is just as picturesque, with an industrial reclaimed feel taking up residence throughout. Seriously, how cool is that light?!

After filling our bellies with yummy brunch, we took a short walk that lead us right into the heart of Cambridge, where we found an abundance of boutique shops, street food stands and bumbling tourists armed with cameras and maps.

The day was too glorious to be spent shopping, so we went exploring instead!

I’ve always been a bookworm and I loved this book store in the market!

With such small streets and everything in close proximity, there’s really no need to drive. On ya bike!

Punting was on the agenda for most. But it’s almost just as fun watching all the action unfold from the bridge!


I find Cambridge is so pretty and there’s much more of it I’d like to explore. Do you have any recommendations?


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
