Hurray for Fitzbillies

All I can say really is YAY.

The Chelsea Bun is back, and also a whole host of other goodies. I'm so pleased Fitzbillies is back and improved, and also it is a proper bakery where everything is made there, and made properly. We've already had a chelsea bun each but we visited again at the weekend.

I had a perfect hot chocolate (made from ganache made in their kitchen) and a wonderful coffee choux bun. Mr Giraffe had a cheese chelsea bun which is simply an excellent twist on the classic sugary treat - topped with cheese and filled with more cheese, leeks and mustard.

The tea is also very good here, proper loose leaf served in a pot. We'll be back for the coffee and also for lunches.

The re-opening of Fitzbillies really makes it feel like Cambridge is edging towards being a decent place to eat.

The coffee choux bun looks brilliant!

I love beautiful things but more than that I love good food and now, I have found your blog, just 5 days before I move to Cambridge from Canada. And while this is good and I think we need to be best friends, it is also bad because of all of your wonderful recommendations and my student budget. Alas.

I went to Fitzbillies recently and while I thought the service was a bit slow (and the girl at the till not too helpful) I loved both the cream tea and the sticky buns (I shared!). The interior is great too.
