The food is organic, wholesome and delicious and their bacon sarnies are undoubtably the best in Cambridge. However prices are eye-wateringly expensive and the service has been below par recently. This is a great shame because it was once a really friendly, warm place. i've...More

Lovely cafe situated inside old church. Sympathetically redesigned in order to share the space with an active church. Food is homemade and always amazing. Our favourite is the soup which changes daily but also has hot dishes, salads, sandwiches and cakes.

Searched online for English breakfast suggestions and decided on Michaelhouse, but after arriving I realised (was rather rudely told) there was no English breakfast. Because I was hungry, I stayed and ordered scrambled eggs on toast with mushrooms, bacon, and sausage. I thought it would...More

This is well worth finding. Nearly every thing is home made and delicious and in a lovely building. I love it and go most weeks for breakfast and lunch when I can. I haven’t been in the evening. I think there is a crèche. There...More

Avoid at all costs. Obnoxious male serving on Saturday 13th October. Michaelhouse served totally overpriced sandwiches at £6.00 each for dry roll, sweaty thin sliver of cheddar cheese, a slice of a beef tomato, pickle, with a few salad leaves on the side. No dressing...More

Looking for a quick lunch before a gin tasting in Cambridge, we literally stumbled upon Michaelhouse! The signs outside promised an amazing meal so we gave it a go on a lark. It’s set up a bit cafeteria style. You grab a tray and walk...More

I do like coming here, especially because it's spacious and very child friendly. Lots of high chairs and nappy changing facilities available. The food is always nice, and there is a lot of choice for different diets. I always end up having scones after my...More

What a lovely find just down from St Mary’s. This is the sister church to St Mary’s and half has been converted to a cafeteria style cafe with gourmet foods to choose from, including vegetarian options. They also have an espresso bar, breakfast and luscious...More

We stopped for coffee and cake (excellent coffee!) and found ourselves in a delightful café in the converted nave of the church, a light and airy space. It is so central to the sights of Cambridge that we found ourselves passing it again later, and...More
