Fair Shares Cafe - About us

Fair Share Cafe provides healthy affordable meals, snacks and cakes – all homemade.

The cafe is run as an agreement between Eddie’s and EURC, by volunteers some of whom have a learning disability. We provide work experience and partnerships with local schools and colleges.

Capacity (seating) – 45 inside and 13 outside & additional space for large groups. We are fully accessible, with a highchair, baby changing facilities and disabled toilets.

Fresh coffee and snacks  (see the Menu for details) – don’t forget to pick up a loyalty card!!

Eddie’s is a local charity and has been supporting people with learning disabilities in Cambridgeshire for over ten years. They used to be part of Cambridgeshire Mencap, which is why you’ll sometimes see that name mentioned on their website.

Eddie’s provides a wide range of services for children, young people and adults with learning disabilities, and their families and carers. They offer practical support and lots of exciting opportunities.

But don’t take our word for it – have a look around their website here:

The ministry the café offers our customers and workers is of great value and we are always looking for more volunteers. You might enjoy helping in the kitchen, or serving at table, or perhaps being a ‘Christian presence’ in the café. If you feel able to offer a couple of hours weekly or fortnightly, please have a word with Ann Auger.

“Fantastic little cafe what a find. Lovely food and lovely people.”

“Not to be missed if you like good wholesome, tasty home made food. The specials are particularily good and everything is such great value. The staff are really nice too.”

“Situated close to the Fitzwilliam Museum in Trumpington St., this café was our choice for lunch after a couple of hours in the museum. We are so glad we chose this rather than eat at the Fitzwilliam. The food was delicious, we had sausage pasta bake and ham & mushroom omelette. The atmosphere pleasant and relaxed, and the service efficient, very friendly and helpful. The excellent value for money was an added bonus. Highly recommended.”
