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.

We had a lovely lunch meal, more than enough food on the plate! The Turkish red wine was surprisingly nice as was the banana milk drink. The coffee, however, (for the oldest coffee house in England!) was a bit disappointing.

We visited one Saturday afternoon. It was packed. We managed to find a table but waited quite a while to be served. The coffee was not memorable but the pecan pie was very good.

This is supposedly the oldest coffee house in England. Unfortunately not much of a nice and unique atmosphere is left. Coffe is being served in mugs you would expect at Starbucks, but not in a place with that much history. Not much to see here, more like your average coffee place.

You can have an excellent and large breakfast here, and appreciate the bustle of the High St outside. The service is good, the food tasy, and you are in the midst of the colleges, next to Queens and opposite Univ. The Ruskin and also the neo-palladian building 'Schools'

Four of us stopped for coffee - without food - and were pleased with the products and service. All four drinks - hot chocolate, flat white, latte and cinnamon coffee were good and good sized.
