WHAT IS AN INDIE?

Looking for your nearest coffee shop? Well, you certainly won't find Costa or Starbucks here. What you will find, as with everything on Independent Cambridge, is a huge range of local, indie people and businesses offering you a wealth of knowledge, a unique experience, and much better coffee!

 

Whoever you are – resident or visitor; whatever you search for, read about and choose to visit or use on this site, you can be sure it’s 100% indie!

 

By choosing to shop at indie stores, drink coffee in indie cafes and eat in indie restaurants, you are not only showing your individuality, you are enjoying a special experience. Even more importantly, by buying from local indies, you are making sure they continue to flourish and carry on their huge contribution to the city’s cultural and commercial success.

 

So, what is our definition of an indie?

 

Being an indie isn't always just about owning one small shop or business. We have members who have several outlets or who run multiple different businesses. To us, it's about independent ownership. The 'indie look' is very popular these days and the chains have recognised this, making it difficult to sometimes tell a chain from an indie.

 

That's why we have a 100% guarantee that all the businesses on this site have their indie credentials checked out before we list them.
