Urban Shed is a quirky airline themed sandwich bar in Cambridge that allows you to soar without constraints to a gluten free heaven. All ingredients are gluten free and sourced and prepared with care. With a LP banging away in a corner and quirky slogans everywhere, you could possibly think that you one in one of the ubiquitous hipster places that are all the rage now. You could not be more wrong. This place shoots from the hip and was hip when the hipsters were looking for their identify in Gap stores.

The first experience can be bewildering, so let me break it down for you. Your first choice is whether you will go down the sandwich route with a traditional or gluten free bread or you go up with the salad route. Then you decide what you want in your sandwich or on top of your salad. There is an exquisite range of choices. Portobello mushroom with blue cheese and candied walnuts. Goat’s cheese with oregano baked tomato. Smoked salmon with Orange Mascarpone. Roast beef with Caramelised onions. To drink there is milkshake, coffees with Urban Shed’s own blend of coffee beans and smoothies, all very competently done.

And now for my favourite part. The whole place with filled with quirky things and smart slogans that keep you entertained. My favourite: In the toilets, above the WC are the stacks of toilet papers rolls with a sign that says “Trump Towers”. Read what you want into it. 🙂
