Julian HuppertThe flavours and tastes of Sicily in the heart of the city have won over residents as they choose Caffe Sicilia to receive recognition in MP Julian Huppert's Discovering Cambridge competition.

Caffe Sicilia, a family run business, was founded in 2011 and opened in Regent Street in June offering traditional Sicilian food and drink.

It takes the September title for the best café or restaurant in the competition designed to celebrate Cambridge's independent businesses.

Hills Road restaurant, Alimentum was chosen as the runner-up. The restaurant boasts one Michelin Star and serves a Modern European menu.

Julian said: "I am delighted these two businesses have received much-deserved recognition.

"We received a great number of nominations for cafes and restaurants across the city for this category and it's clear that people love the huge choice of food and drink that is on offer in Cambridge.

"I visited Caffe Sicilia on its opening day and I was pleased to see that its staff are paid the Living Wage. I wish it every success for the future. It has clearly left a lasting impression."

Julian is seeking nominations for the best Arts and Crafts businesses this month.

Nominations can be sent to Julian by email at [email protected] or by Twitter at @julianhuppert or by post at Discovering Cambridge, Julian Huppert MP, 16 Signet Court, Swann Road, Cambridge, CB5 8LA.

Julian is choosing a monthly winner for Discovering Cambridge and the overall competition winner will be named at the Mill Road Winter Fair in December.
