If you’re meandering around Cambridge and are feeling peckish, head over to Stir. There you shall find a stunning interior design scheme, created and photographed by Mystery LTD London.
I first came to be stirred, if you’ll pardon the pun, in December. On a cold Cambridge morning, I had a coffee and refreshing breakfast there. The night before had not been kind to me. I was welcomed and felt immersed into a world of delectable dining and high style.
This visit was far more productive. I arrived shortly before I was due to start my work and profited from the extra time to have an elaborate breakfast.
The coffee. Super duper.
But the main event for me was the poached eggs on sourdough bread with halloumi fries. Oh boy. A Cypriot/British fusion triumph. I’ll let the picture do the talking…
The egg was so beautifully poached. All the yolky goodness flowed onto the sourdough bread and fused gorgeously with the mushroom and halloumi. I can’t express what joy one is filled with on ingesting these morsels of greatness. One feels healthy and one feels hearty.
I’m so impressed by the professionalism and consistency of the staff. The atmosphere is relaxed, the food and drink are of the highest quality. And, to top it all off, it is central. The city centre is a ten minute walk away which means there is plenty of free parking around. Just don’t abuse it. Cambridge residents are not as quaint ans harmless as they look, believe me.
In all, this is one of my hidden gems. Family run; away from main monuments and hellishly good food. Go and bring your friends. You won’t regret it.
