Clowns is a long established cafe in Cambridge. It has a clown theme, unsurprisingly, with lots and lots of clown memorabilia over the walls. Run by an Italian family, it has a range of Italian cakes, meals and drinks – and a fantastic atmosphere. The staff are really loud and friendly, and happy to recommend every dish on the menu!

I hadn’t been here for about twenty years, so it was nice to return. We just had drinks and cakes, which were very good; I’ll probably go back for a proper meal at some point as the food smelled great.

Tiramisu is their signature dish and is delicious. Coffee and walnut cake was very well balanced, served with fresh ice cream. Amaretto hot chocolate was as expected!
