Café Foy is an independent café bar created by Cambridge born and bred siblings, both with a love for good food, drink and chat by the River Cam.
Serving coffee, epic toasties, awesome scotch eggs, small plates and cocktails until late. Pop in and try our homemade cakes with vegan and dairy-free options, or share some small plates on our terrace from our ever-changing specials board.
We also play host to dinner parties, tasting evenings and events, so keep an eye out or give us a call to host your own party for 25 - 60 guests.
We'll toast to that!

"On July 12, 1789, Camille Desmoulins,
standing on a table in the Café de Foy,
a sword in one hand, a pistol in the other,
haranguing a huge crowd, a green leaf in his hat, calling the bourgeois from Paris to arms,
distributing green leaves to them as a sign of rallying, gave the signal for the insurrection which went
from there to finish the next day
with the taking of the Bastille."
A word on a Café de Foy, that once stood in the Palais Royal, Paris.
Whilst there's no relation between the two, what we do share is a love for coffee,
art and a good gossip (political or not).
