A spot of lunch

Not many outdoor places to eat when it is 33 degrees. All the food seems to be made on the premises and it is quite good. A limited renge of beers, but it is a church building and not a pub. Free wi-fi as a bonus.

No excuse for not praying whilst having breakfast now! There is a church chapel in the middle of this lovely little cafe. Very clean with very nice staff. I had scrambled eggs with bacon, sausage and mushroom over some Italian toast. Very nice coffee, was a very important point to start me off on my day exploring Cambridge. Outdoor seating... More

Sadly disappointed with the lack of customer service yesterday. Came shopping to Cambridge with my son to celebrate his last day of exams and treating him to some lunch which looked lovely while waiting in the queue, unfortunately sandwiches were off the menu until 12:30 due to staff shortages, so my son had a cold slice of pizza, when asked...

Looking for a late breakfast, we nearly walked past Michaelhouse Church, the menu was not obviously displayed. We thought we'd give it a go, and what a treat! All the ingredients are fresh, tasty and well prepared. The scrambled eggs are great, very tasty bacon and sausages, and they bake their own bread. The tea and coffee is good too.... More

We were recommended the restaurant by our tour guide at the end of a cold and wet guided tour - it was lovely and warm when we went in which recommended it to us. We opted for hot meals, they were tasty but sadly mine was lukewarm. It was busy and although we tried to clear our trays away the... More

We had lovely, light quiches and salads for lunch. The place was pretty full, reflecting the very good value. Part of the church has been sympathetically converted into the restaurant - the rest is still a church. After 3 pm, all leftover lunches are sold at half price. Great tombstones in the gents!

A visit to this restaurant is a special treat for me - delicious salads and quiches, home made soups and tasty bread accompanied by the best coffee. The staff are helpful and efficient and the historic surroundings add a sense of calm and privilege. If you are really lucky you might find a choir or musicians in rehearsal in the... More

Usually eat here with a friend when shopping in Cambridge. Food never disappoints, I always have the quiche offering with the lentil salad, every variety has been delicious! Have never been treated rudely by the staff, they are always friendly and professional. Today, my friend had the stilton and pumpkin pie, wanted the recipe and was advised by a very... More

I had lunch here on a nostalgic trip to see Cambridge after many years away. This little cafe is delightful. It's attached to - actually set within - a lovely working church right in the centre of town, on Trinity Street, just 300 yards from Kings Chapel and many of the wonderful colleges. The food is straighforward - quiche, salads,... More
