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!

This is a very nice place to come for a quick bite to eat or for a coffee. Its surroundings are beautiful and there's normally plenty of space for people to sit.

I've had a coffee in Michaelhouse and loved it. The building is great, and much as there is always a queue the coffee is good. So I took the family there for a treat. My mistake was to treat myself to a piece of flapjack....More

I have been here many times but did not know lunch prices are reduced after 3 pm. You are left with what is left but it is all good. This is a great place for a quick bite.

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.

Great home-made soup, served with home made bread. Husband enjoyed home-made scone with home-made jam. All reasonably priced.
