    Amazing brunch! I would highly recommend the avocado on toast with poached eggs, halloumi and seeds!

    It was just ok. Poached eggs were cold and hard. Table should have been cleaned.

    Very mediocre yet high prices. Soulless, tasteless and overpriced… toasts we’re cold… Portions were tiny, with tiny sourdough slices as a base. Little Kimchi in my Kimcheese, and tiny cheese as a topper… chickpeas were small and scarce, and overall it’s just not worth the price, very mediocre, which would be OK would the prices be lower, but oh no, they are not. There was a lack of ingredients such as spinach and other sides, as well as a lack of juices… because the delivery had not been scheduled early enough, we arrived at 10 am for breakfast. Overall I would not go back. The coffee was fine but again, 3.5 the cup, so there is nothing to praise there. I don’t recommend.

    We had to book 2 x tables of 4 but the manager managed to create a table of 8 for us which was very much appreciated. Food was a great choice post half marathon for the runners in our group. Thank you!

    We normally go to Expresso library for day time and for brunches. It was the first time we had dinner there. There was a piano and the lady played all night as long as we were there which was lovely. I had smoked salmon starter and my husband had tomato salad. We both enjoyed it. My main was a steak and my husband' s was tuna. His tuna looked and tested delicious. My steak was vey well cooked. They catered my lactose free husband very well. They even made pavlova with yogurt instead of cream. Over all everything was perfect. We had a fantastic evening.

    The staff, coffee and food were very good. As other reviews point out, its a bit pricey though! Mostly when you add options to a base such as Advocado on toast. Overall when you get your food and coffee, it is good. 4* rating purely because of the value for money balance.

    This was my second visit after a superb first visit. I brought a friend with me and we received excellent service from helpful staff members. Any questions I had were met with answers and recommendations. The atmosphere was lovely, quite a quiet day so we weren't rushed from our table. The food and coffee was exceptional. I'll definitely be back again!

    It was our first time visiting the Espresso library. My sister drives past on her way to work and always thought it looked nice and wanted to go in. We treated ourselves and our mum to brunch and it was great. The staff were very friendly, service was excellent. Our coffees were delicious and the food was incredible. The place was decorated very well and had really lovely art work as well We would definitely return and would recommend to friends.

    Always a pleasure at Espresso Library. The food is delicious and only took 5-10 minutes to arrive to our table. The staff are lovely as usual. This is definitely up there with the top brunch places in Cambridge.

    I don't normally leave reviews but we were so delighted with lunch here. The team went out of their way to look after us and my two young children (3 and 1 years old). Even down to straining their fresh juice so it had no bits, and doing individual cheese on toasts for them. The were really kind and the atmosphere was great - very lively, but that meant we didn't have to worry about the kids disturbing anyone! Lovely food, fantastic coffee, kind staff. Very happy family.
