Michaelhouse Cafe – Cambridge

Cambridge, England is known for its universities and colleges, punting along the River Cam and students on bicycles.  With history around every corner, the city is full of amazing sights and attractions. A surprising hidden gem within this city of jewels of history, is located between Trinity College and King College Chapel, St Michael’s Parish Church.  In the 1990’s St Michael’s needed repairs, to help pay for the refurbishment Michaelhouse Cafe opened up to the public in October 2008.  A unique experience, surrounded by history, eating in the sacred chambers of the church.  Owned and operated by renowned food writer Bill Sewell, Michaelhouse Cafe offers a daily rotating menu of delicious, simple food with locally sourced ingredients. Served cafeteria style, diners can sit in tables amongst the curated art gallery or in the mezzanine overlooking the church pews. On a recent visit, my friends and I sampled a few of the day’s menu options; a savoury sausage & bean curry on rice and a rich cauliflower gratin with fresh local greens. Since all their ingredients is locally sourced from Cambridgeshire farms the seasonal menu changes regularly so it’s always worth a visit on a trip to Cambridge.
Open from 8am to 5pm Monday to Saturday, Michaelhouse Cafe is located on Trinity Street, Cambridge. The cafe also operates a catering arm and is available for hire for private functions and meeting space.
