Really good food,and plenty of choice. Staff friendly, but could be a bit tight at busy times as limited space inside.Salads are very good as is the house fat little pizza. We always stop here if we're in Cambridge on a Saturday, not open Sundays by the way as it is given over to the church on that day. Well... More

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. I would highly recommend the eggy bread with bacon & maple syrup. This was our...

Had a very tasty lasagne and salad here. I have walked past so many times while on Trinity Street and decided to go in for lunch. Very glad I did. Staff were lovely,so friendly and able to recommend what to eat when I was being indecisive. Will visit again.

A quiet place, even though right in the middle of the historical centre, where you can meet and talk over your tea, coffee or a light lunch.

This establishment has much in common with a standard canteen. The procedure is as follows; go in, queue up, grab a tray, choose your meal, pay at the till and eat. Don't forget to pick up your cutlery before you look for a free table while your food is getting cold. Oh, and please return your tray and used utensils... More

A wonderful hidden gem just off the main street in Cambridge. Perfect for a cheap coffee and cake or a light lunch in a beautiful converted old church. The service is sometimes slow and the food is cheap so it's not the best place to eat in cambridge but it's beautiful and the coffee is good and the cakes are... More

We had been searching for a place that catered for vegetarians, non vegetarians, gluten free and kids. We peeked in here at about 2:30 and almost all the food was gone but they had home made vege chili, sweet potato and feta quiche and a brace of coffee and cake. Tasty, friendly, relaxed, nice atmosphere. We had room to seat... More

Nice place, in a historic church in the city centre. There are simple but good food and coffee. It worth a visit.

It is always a pleasure to step off the bustling streets of Cambridge into Michaelhouse. It's just a few yards from the Market Square and is a haven away from the hoards. The food is self service and of excellent quality. A quirky venue with wholesome food. At a Christmas there is the bonus of the lovely nativity displayed in... More

Michaelhouse is a valuable part of the Cambridge scene. The food is affordable, freshly cooked and palatable. It is a ideal place in which to meet friends for a coffee or light lunch and very popular with local people. Not a 'destination' place but well worth a visit.
