Stir is a fairly new cafe in the Chesterton area of Cambridge. Quite a nice place to spend time if you can find a seat among the moochers using wifi without buying a drink. The staff are friendly and helpful. Drinks are nice if on the small side for the money; I didn’t have much to eat, but my friends enjoyed their light meals. In fact one said if he lived nearby he’d eat there every day. I’ll report back if I eat there.

Australian coffee, Stir, Cambridge

Australian style iced coffee is pretty much a light coffee milkshake. Pleasant. Iced latte, latte, lemon and elderflower, and caramel milkshake were all nice but small.

Halloumi, Stir, Cambridge

Friends enjoyed their halloumi and mushroom sourdough toast (though the added bacon wasn’t very good) and salmon and cream cheese bagel.

Minicakes, Stir, Cambridge

The banana and white choc chip mini cupcakes were tiny and didn’t taste very good.
