Warm welcome

Lovely food, very welcoming and great value - unpretentious in every way. I can recommend their lovely home made soups on a cold day. I will return for sure.

Pleasant little coffee shop, but wait, more than just coffee! My hubby and I stopped in for a cup of coffee and a scone. All sweet treats are homemade and look wonderful. We both had coffee and a cherry scone. The scone came with a little cherry jam that was seasoned with cloves. We commented that it would be scrumptious... More

My wife and I stopped in here for morning coffee. A very nice suprise, indeed! Fresh baked scones, pastries, cakes, pies. Sandwiches, stew, lots of lunch items. We had Americano coffee and its some of the tastiest, smoothest coffee that I've ever drank. The owner came to our table to see if everything was OK and gave us another coffee... More

Free hot beverages for those taking the McCrossan City Walking Tours, and the best fresh-baked scones I've ever tasted!!! So sad I could only try them once, and that I live so far away from them!

Yet another mediocre coffee shop in Derry. Tables are too close together and seats beside door draughty. Other than that it's the same as all the others in the area

Lovely food, great value. I especially love the fact that for the last fifteen years I can still get my favourite sandwich made with the same great tasting ingredients by the same face and its still great. Would recommend to anyone looking to have a bite to eat in Derry.
