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.

Healthy lunch options and irresistible cake in a gothic church. This is a self-service place and there are tables on two floors.

We know where to come in future,we had been using a place near Kings college which was at best pretty average. So finding Michaelhouse was a pleasant surprise on a scorching Saturday afternoon. I loved the way that a church is used not just for...More
