Units 5/6 Dale’s Brewery, Gwydir St, CB1 2LJ
Hot Numbers sets the standard for speciality coffee in Cambridge. They have two shops now but the original one just off Mill road blazed a trail for high end coffee when it first opened. They also have a roastery that has a café, bakery, and coffee training facility. The coffee is the absolute star of the show, roasted in house and served by friendly and highly professional baristas. They also have a good brunch offering to go alongside your drink which is worth checking out.
