Proper tea, good cake. Really great location on Trinity street so close to many of the colleges, easy place to have a quick break from all the sightseeing.

Have used Michaelhouse for a number of years, it’s a great place but also a church. The food is always good and it’s out of the way and have always managed to get a table.

We had a late lunch here - quiche and three salads. The quiche was delicious as were the salads. The restaurant was quiet, being a Monday afternoon, but the service was as efficient and friendly as ever.

Great location actually within church. Food is homemade and the soups are particularly good. We had butternut squash coconut and lime soup. Plenty of veggie options.
