Stopped in here for a cappuccino -- and it was delicious. Service is prompt and friendly, free Wifi. Sat next to a professor and his student, discussing Roman architecture -- how magical is that? I always like to support the independent coffee houses, and this one was a delight.

Called in for a coffee mid morning. Very busy with couples and families. Coffe was very nice they cater for gluten free and had a selection of cake but my husband thought they were expensive for what they were so decided to just have the coffee. Service was prompt and the coffee hot. Met a father and his two daughters... More

As you meander down High Street overawed with Queens College on one side and Kings on the other make your way to the legendary Queens Lane Coffeehouse. Bustling with the sound of a happy clientele this coffee house does delectable paninis wraps and breakfast. We enjoyed a pot of tea, cinnamon turkish coffee and carrot cake.

Just for a coffee, but was enough to like this place and the service. Would come back for a meal for sure as the location and atmosphere will suit all ages!

I went in there on 5 February 2016 to order a panini. As things transpired, I ended up with merely a warm baguette, but we'll get onto that later. I was pleased with the filling options available (I got chicken, hummus, cheddar and spinach) but not with how these options ramped up the price and I ended up paying £4.95... More

We came across this coffee house, quite by accident, while walking along Queens Lane. The interior is quite modern looking - one would hardly think it dates back to the 1600s. The service is excellent and we enjoyed a very good cup of coffee.

The oldest coffeehouse in Europe!!! The pesto chicken wrap with cheese is outstanding. Good service, free Wi-Fi and you can have a nice plate and a good cup of coffee for less than £10 if you choose wisely.

We stopped here for a light lunch. The choice of food is fairly broad and titled towards Mediterranean/Turkish. The sandwiches were nice and the baklava was even better.

We stopped in for afternoon tea rather than the coffee, and it was a nice rest with good food. A bit noisy and crowded, so the service was a little slow, but not bad. It took them a while to arrange payment by credit card, though.
