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.
