Satisfy your Sweet Tooth in Cambridge!

Have you ever been walking around Cambridge and wondered what’s the best place to visit when you are trying to settle a sweet tooth craving?

Well, we have some amazing eateries here in Cambridge that we thought we would share with you to give you some idea of where you can pick up something sweet.

We have listed 5 places to visit below (this isn’t to say that there aren’t more incredible places to try, we have just selected 5 that should cater to all those sweet treat cravings):



Running for over 35 years, Fudge Kitchen hand-crafts their original and special recipe fudge using a variety of traditional methods (as well as love, of course). Their products are diverse, ranging from their own unique creation of Gourmet Butter Fudge, Luxury Fudge Sauce and Drinking Fudge (yes, drinking fudge!). On top of all of that, their products are made with completely natural ingredients, no preservatives, vegetarian friendly and gluten free. Vegan flavours are also available.

Having started from restaurants and home kitchens, Jack founded Jack’s Gelato with the intention of taking Cambridge by storm, igniting the taste buds of ice-cream lovers from across the globe. Perfection is their ambition, and perfection is what they achieve. Some of their best and most enticing ingredients include organic and fair trade cocoa, coffee beans from the coffee officina and organic and fair trade madagascan vanilla. Moreover, Jack’s are available for private hire both in and around Cambridge, attending events such as weddings, garden parties, corporate launches, staff parties and birthdays. Located in the heart of Cambridge city centre, Jack’s can be found on Bene’t Street, merely a few minutes walk from sights such as the Corpus Clock, King’s College and the senate house, though something as small as an ice-cream from Jack’s can provide an equally memorable experience.
