Julian said: “Caffe Sicilia has really made its mark on Cambridge in such a short space of time and I congratulate them for taking the Discovering Cambridge title.
“I also congratulate all the businesses which took part in this competition. It was great to see how residents and visitors to our city really value the independent traders for not only their diversity but also their excellent customer service and support.
“I hope that Discovering Cambridge has encouraged people across the city to discover these businesses and I hope we will see them go from strength to strength.”
