The best delis in Cambridge

gerla de boer shops

Delicatessen shops are not just for Christmas! Many people only shop at these great shops only for special occasions. A real pity as their offering is so good and the quality is so much better than similar products at leading stream shops. Where can you find the best independent delicatessen shops in Cambridge? Here is my list of the best delis in Cambridge. 

Cambridge Cheese Company in All Saints Passage

Tucked away in All Saints Passage, which runs between Bridge and Trinity Street, this excellent deli stocks a fine selection of local and international cheeses. Once per week they have a delivery from Paris of delicatessen, charcuterie and seasonal vegetables. They are also famous for their vast collection of chilli sauces. Close on Sundays. website 

Meadows in Newham

This new neighbourhood food shop opened its doors in May 2018. Meadows is a partnership between Suzannah Watson of Hum-closen and Emese Gengelickzi, a patisserie chef with both French and Hungarian training. Alongside the wine, cheese and patisserie that you would expect from this duo, you will find freshly harvested vegetables from Flourish( a local horse-powered farm), locally baked bread, and well-stocked pantry shelves bringing together a range of local produce and specialties from further afield that are not yet available to buy in the city. Meadows aim to provide delicious, healthy food that supports regenerative farming in rural economies across Europe as well as local independent food producers closer to home. Open Friday, Saturday and Sunday. website

Culinaris in Mill Road

One of my favourite delis in Cambridge. You often can find me here as I do a lot of my shopping in Mill Road. So I will find any excuse to pop in for cheese, artisan chocolate, charcuterie or Kombucha. Their first shop opened its doors in Hungary in 2002. Cambridge opened in 2015. They stock products from 700 producers from 16 countries on a rotating basis including Dutch cheese and charcuterie. So I am a happy bunny! Open all week. website

Limoncello in Mill Road

This Italian delicatessen based started off as a small deli around 1999 and soon outgrew their first shop so moved into its current location in Mill Road. Over 90% of their products are imported from Italy, including the fresh pesto, olives, cheeses, meats and antipasti.  The place to get Nduja and Lardo, an important toping for my homemade pizzas! website
