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.

This is a favorite stop for breakfast, well located on King's Parade. It has an interesting history and has been repurposed well as a community center.

This is such a lovely place for a quick yet delicious lunch. I used to go there all the time while I was a student in Cambridge. Their daily menu is very nice. I especially love their quiche served with three different types of salads (the lentil one is my favourite!). The location is quite peculiar and fascinating, especially when... More

We called in here for a quick coffee and scone before our Cambridge Walking Tour. What a super little café. Great coffee and freshly made scones at very reasonable prices, Large coffee, Green Tea and 2 sweet scones all for £7.10, now that's value for money. The cafe is set in the former Chapel. The Chancel is still used for... More

The cafe food was not good value, especially in terms of quantity of food served. However I'm sure the church is quite nice to visit.

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!
