Queen's Lane Coffee House is a historic coffee house dating from 1654 in Oxford, England. It claims to be the oldest coffee house in Europe.[1]

The coffee house is situated on the north side of the High Street (at No. 40), on the corner with Queen's Lane, hence the name.[2][3] Close by are both The Queen's College to the west and St Edmund Hall to the north. It is popular with both Oxford University and Oxford Brookes University students and tourists.[citation needed]

In 2009 it rebranded itself as "QL", and has a branch with this name in the Headington suburb of Oxford.[citation needed] Another branch that had opened in Jericho is now closed.
