Coffee Time in Canterbury – Queen Bee Home

This charming interiors and gift shop in Mercery lane has recently opened a coffee shop.

The stylish interior of the shop extends to the cafe area which includes a tiny courtyard area outside. All this is decorated with items from the shop.


  • The location, in Mercery lane is very central.
  • The service was excellent, fast and friendly.
  • The seats aren’t particularly comfortable but they look lovely.
  • Coffee is great and you get a big proper china cup full.
  • A good range of sandwiches etc. but save room for the cake, they are all slightly unusual and absolutely delicious.
  • Very reasonable prices.
  • The toilet is at the top of some steep and ancient steps only adding to the charm of the shop.



A new favourite, this place is great. We may need to visit here a lot!
