It’s Your Choice: Great Cambridge Food Spots with Both Indoor and Outdoor Seating

Published on May 14, 2021 by

As lockdown lifts, we, here at Your Space Apartments, are really looking forward to welcoming visitors back to Cambridge and supporting local businesses.

In preparation for the arrival of our guests we have researched a few superb Cambridge eateries that offer the best of both worlds with a choice of indoor and outdoor seating options.

Here are our top recommendations.

Café Foy

Indoor diners will love the cheerful ambience of this independent café which treats customers to brunch classics and tasty toasties while serving wine and cocktails until late. The outdoor seating is right beside the River Cam and just across from beautiful Magdalene College.
The name ‘Foy’ is inspired by Magdalene’s motto, ‘garde ta foy’, which means, ‘keep the faith’ in old French. What better place to celebrate the country’s reopening with some fantastic food and drink?


SIX Brasserie and Rooftop Terrace at The Varsity Hotel

Both the indoor SIX Brasserie and the outdoor Roof Terrace give stunning views across the city allowing you to take in famous sights while enjoying locally sourced dishes and an effervescent selection of drinks.
A luxury BBQ menu is served on the Roof Terrace while diners in the brasserie can choose from a range of delicious meals and desserts as well as gorgeous Afternoon Teas (booking ahead highly recommended.).


The Anchor

The Anchor pub provides outdoor seating on a riverside porch allowing visitors to admire tour guides steering their punts along the river and to be amused by the less-skilled efforts of self-punting tourists and students!
Indoors or out, this popular venue serves tasty pub favourites in a welcoming atmosphere, and, is the place to be to feel the beating heart of a Cambridge summer.



For an eatery away from the city centre, try Limoncello on Mill Road. This independent deli and bistro provides an authentic taste of Italy with classic pizza and pasta dishes. The indoor space is homely and relaxed and 2020 saw the creation of an alfresco dining area, called ‘The Sunset Garden’: ideal for a leisurely lunch. Don’t forget to explore the deli and pick up some exceptional ingredients or a special bottle of wine for later…


Whatever your dining preferences, we’re confident Cambridge has delicious experiences to offer. You can even get a taste of the city from the comfort of your Your Space Apartment; explore Click It Local on our apartment information tablet to find gems like the famous Fitzbillies bakery or the yellow ‘Amelie’ truck who can deliver fabulous food to your door throughout your stay. We’re so excited to see our city thrive after months of uncertainty, so start planning your visit to Cambridge today. We can’t wait to see you here.
