A warm welcome awaits you, friends and pilgrims to Canterbury!

Welcome to the Cathedral Café. Whether a weary traveller in search of a hearty bowl of soup and satisfying cup of tea, or a member of the Cathedral community, you will not find a better located coffee stop in Canterbury.

Situated next to the historic Christ Church Gate, the Cathedral Café offers a range of breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea options to suit all tastes. We are proud to serve locally sourced produce from across Kent, taking pride in our fantastic location at the centre of the Garden of England.

Celebrate the history of Canterbury, its Cathedral, and the amazing ongoing journey to maintain this historical site as you pass through each room; each with a different theme and exploring the work of our stonemasons and stained glass conservators, with an archive room showcasing photos of some of the historic documents stored by the Cathedral.

A revolving art exhibition by Fine Art students from nearby Canterbury College also celebrates the talents of the student community – Students and businesspeople alike can find a relaxing nook to check emails away from the library or office, with our complimentary WiFi.
