This is a popular venue so it's best to avoid the lunchtime rush! It is ideal for a quick snack or just a coffee, nicely situated just away from the main hotspots of the city. Food was fresh and nicely presented.

Popped in for a late breakfast while sightseeing and we thoroughly enjoyed Michaelhouse Cafe. Very good scrambled eggs, bacon and toast. Eggy bread with maple syrup good too. The interesting location inside an old church added to the experience. Recommended.

This restaurant never fails to please. The menu is limited but good with really tasty food and quick service at the counter. Vegetarian food is especially good but there's also a meat option.
