Should have come here for lunch rather the The Eagle. However, we did come here for tea and cakes and it was lovely. The cooked food looked delicious and the cakes were gorgeous. A pleasant and interesting environment.

This is a beautiful coffee place within an old Church, however there is part of the Church still open for business as a place of quiet. Michaelhouse has a comfortable, relaxed & welcoming atmosphere & is just a two minute walk from Kings College Chapel....More
