    Vicki....which the the biggest coffee place/cafe in cambridge? I just need this to be the venue of the first very sociable meet, so where do you suggest (would only be for an hour)
    Downstairs in Starbucks is good, if you can cope with selling your soul to Satan in return for being a customer there

    The biggest one is probably Starbucks (grrr), but there's also a Caffe Nero which is a bit smaller. The Starbucks in Borders might be a better as it's less likely to be full of tourists. We could always go for hot chocolate rather than coffee... This responsibility is not worthy of me - what does anyone else think?

    Harrison Ford = (I'm yet to meet a girl who disagrees on that one! when he was younger that is, as Han Solo or Indiana Jones!)
    I also have a hat like his, it's not real though, it's a foam Fosters advertising one (perks of bar work!), my monkey wears it and it's most definitely coming to Cambridge with me!
    I'm still saving for the DVD box set, now the Star Wars trilogy is coming out I don't know which to buy first!!

    Not sure whether this makes any difference but would like to applaud Christ's JCR and google for being so helpful!

    Christ's JCR's Favourite Places to go for Coffee:

    • Clown's (King Street)- coffee and Italian food

      Waterstone's (Sidney Street)- read a book while you enjoy a coffee

      CB2 (Norfolk Street)-good café also does real food

      Savino’s (Emmanuel Street)- a bit smoky but nice coffee and a variety of flavoured Italian syrups

      Caffe' Nero (Market St.) for Italian coffee & cakes

      Café Indigo (St Edwards Passage)- at times closes early but nice when it’s open

      B Bar (behind Borders) - Bar by night, good coffee by day

      Bar Ha Ha (Trinity Street)-recommend their sundae and brownies

    I have the most pathetic amount of sugar in my coffee, less than half a tea spoon, not for the sweetness though; to get rid of the yucky bitter after-taste most instant coffee leaves! Proper coffee is ruined by milk and sugar though. I achieved a long term goal recently, getting my work to stock FT coffee!

    Yeah you're right, I meant that we could avoid Starbucks coffee and order hot chocolate instead. Hot chocolate being less exploitive, I would imagine.

    could be, i don't imagine they use fair-trade cocoa beans in making their hot choccy though, and concerns about the business as a whole are the same.

    anyway, i dont mind going to starbucks if its most convenient

    one consideration, at our local star bucks at least, the tables etc are arranged in small groups and it wouldnt be very easy for everyone to sit together (as i recall the tables are bolted to the floor, notts people will steal anything )

    If there are going to be absolutely loads of us, it might be a better idea to reserve tables somewhere like pizza hut or other local eatery. doesnt have to be expensive.

    hehe. i'm completely the opposite. milky coffee is my type of drink. just enough so the taste of the coffee is still there, but without the bitterness

    and waterstone's cafe is a costa coffee.....they do the most amazing hot chocolates, called ciocolatta's....ots of whipped cream and marshmallows in the drink
