Stir Cafe

Stir is an independent and locally owned coffee shop in the CB4 neighbourhood of Cambridge. It is the social hub of the community – a place for people to meet, connect, re-charge but also a place where you can escape and unwind.
We serve Butterworth & Son coffee, bread and cakes from our own onsite bakery and a fresh, delicious and wholesome brunch in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.


Our Coffee

We proudly source our coffee from Butterworth & 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. 

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.

Our hard work pays off ! As well as being the hardest working barista's in Cambridge. We have been chosen twice to appear at the La Marzocco True Artisan Cafe at the London Coffee Festival. Once in 2016 (our first trading year) and again in 2017, A part of the festival that celebrates local, independent coffee, allowing us to bring our own signature Stir style to the event. 


Of course, with the coffee and minds in place, we still need the right tools. We have two La Marzocco Linea PB 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

Our menu keeps on growing! Freshly prepared with pride and passion by our team of wonderful chefs. Extensive seasonal brunch menu served daily and with weekend specials popping up to keep you coming back. All of our bread is handcrafted at the Stir Bakery onsite (just next door if you fancy a visit!) and the rest comes from local suppliers where possible.

We have gluten free and vegan options. Just ask us if you have any dietary requirements and we will gladly adapt! 


Our Space

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, read the Sunday papers, or if 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, Toddler Art, and children's science classes from the wonderful Mini Professors. 


The room is also available for private parties so please take a look at our Events page for more details on how to get in touch and ask to see our celebration cake price list.

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