As seems to be the norm in this ancient university town, stepping down into the building is where it's at. This lovely historic church is now a concert venue and eatery. We enjoyed the various sandwiches and keeping a lovely building operational.

Unusual location in a church. Don't let that put you off. It's a decent size and has great food and tea.on a very busy Saturday even mid afternoon it was possible to find an empty table and queue for not too long. Gray place. Recommend.

We called in for coffee and scones - delicious! The meals looked excellent, and after 3pm are offered at half price whilst they remain, which would be great value. A great place to relax away from the crowds.

Excellent lunch at Michael House Café - good tasty food that includes a choice of gluten free and vegetarian options. Friendly and welcoming staff - and very good value for money. Next visit will be to sample cakes !

Located in a converted church near St. John's College, this cafe is a great stop for coffee and tea. They have a full coffee menu and a nice selection of teas. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was nice. Would return in the future.

Really enjoyed our lunch at Michaelhouse. It's a local spot - not touristy - in busy central cambridge. Good homemade food and lots of tables. A church inside too!
