Come and enjoy our speciality coffee and homemade cakes at our café in rural Cambridgeshire


In 2021 we opened Holly Lodge Café. We wanted to offer our visitors a rustic, relaxed, friendly place to come and enjoy our countryside for a little longer. Whether you are visiting after or before using our secure dog fields or using us as a pit stop on your cycle route, we will be there to serve you coffee and cake with a smile! Our café started as a pop-up, however this summer, July 2023, we hope to be able to open the doors to our new and improved building where you will be able to relax and enjoy our freshly baked pastries! Keep an eye on our social media for the progress of our build and all our exciting, tasty new products!

Opening Hours:
Monday & Wednesday 10am – 3pm

Thursday, Friday, Saturday – 9am – 4pm

Sunday, Bank Holidays – 10am – 4pm


Coffee, coffee, coffee! We love our coffee! That is why we teamed up with The Roastery at Wellingborough to bring you the best quality, speciality organic coffee that we could get our hands on! Our ‘Milkbuster’ coffee beans are as the name suggests, bold, dark, and versatile that taste great with milk. From our coffee you will experience plenty of chocolate and hazelnut notes with a creamy body and cherry sweetness. Our current blend origin is Brazil and Nicaragua where our beans are grown organically for top quality coffee.

Don’t fancy a coffee? Our Brew Tea Co range of teas will provide you with a rolled whole leaf tea bag for a proper cup of tea. The tasty richness of Indian Assam coupled with refreshing Ceylon is the perfect combination! We have 7 flavours from Moroccan Mint to English Breakfast!


At Holly Lodge Café we pride ourselves on supporting small, local businesses. That is why we are proud to say that all our food comes from companies within a 35-mile radius of Holly Lodge! We have a range of flavours of handmade, whole cakes from Old Weston, scrumptious sausage rolls and scotch eggs from Sawtry, and funky traybakes with your favourite chocolate bars and biscuits from Cambridge.

From Jammie Dodger Blondies to Chipotle Scotch Eggs, we have something for everyone to enjoy. For the summer months we have teamed up with another local supplier to bring you a range of beautiful, homemade Italian style ice creams. Within our gorgeous range of bakes, cakes and savouries we also have vegetarian and vegan products available, as well as gluten free. All of these are served to you in our compostable packaging!


Here at Holly Lodge Café we hope to provide you with a friendly atmosphere where you can relax and enjoy the surroundings of the Cambridgeshire countryside. We have a gorgeous al fresco patio with a shady pergola, perfect for our customers with doggies in the summer months. Our top garden is purpose built to accommodate visitors on bicycles with plenty of bike racks, seating, and easy, safe access to the road. For those with children, our outdoor play area will also come in handy!

“Always happy to pop in to grab a coffee, cake and even ice cream especially made for my (any) dog. Always very friendly. frequently busy, though not too busy to always find time for a quick chat. Very popular with dog owners with their attached dog fields and fly ball competitions, along with cyclists and walkers.”
