Stir is an independent and locally owned coffee shop in the CB4 neighbourhood of Cambridge. It is the social hub of the neighbourhood – a place for people to meet, connect, re-charge but also a place where you can escape and unwind.
We serve Butterworth & Son coffee and a fresh, delicious and wholesome brunch in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.
Our freshly prepared juices
We proudly source our coffee from Butterworth and Son, a specialist roastery based in Bury St Edmunds. We serve the award winning 4 Bean blend as our primary espresso, as well as a rotating single origin which we also sell as filter.
We understand that great coffee needs a lot of passion and thought given to the preparation, to ensure the fantastic flavour of the beans is properly nurtured and released. This is why we employ baristas as passionate about coffee as we are, enthusiastic and constantly furthering their training to understand and enjoy coffee to a higher level. Of course, with the coffee and minds in place, we still need the right tools. We have two La Marzocco machines, a state of the art BUNN ICB and Mahlkonig grinders at our baristas disposal.
We love the body and flavour of the coffee and judging by your feedback, you do too!
Our range of coffee beans are also available for retail purchase and we will happily grind them to your needs.
Our food comes from local suppliers where possible and is ethically soured at a competitive price. We don’t have an extensive menu but what we do serve is of great quality and will have been prepared with pride and passion.
We have a fantastic large flexible space, which allows us to meet the range of needs our customers will have. Whether you are coming in on your own to catch up on some emails or read the Sunday papers, or whether you are in a big group with your kids straight from school or after Saturday morning rowing, we will look after you.
We are really proud of the space that we have created, both outdoor and indoors. With a large seating area, there should always be a table free with enough space to also comfortably accommodate a good few pushchairs!
The Back Room
Our back room is available to hire for courses or one off events. Some of the activities that are currently being offered include Pilates, Yoga ( as well as a specialised yoga for runners and cyclists) , toddler art, toddler yoga and sewing.

We hope you love our space as much as we do and hope to see you very soon!
