This truly is one of the best in the country. The reason i say this, is for several reasons.The quality of the food, the cleanness of the establishment,the friendliness of the staff, the tea & Coffee is served in crockery pots, no background music bouncing from speakers, ambience and last but not least, the view.Believe it or not... I could... More

I truly don't understand the mind behind running this establishment. It could be such a wonderful, friendly, enticing little gold mine. If only the owners/management/staff understood the meaning (and importance) of customer service. I've been in several times, as it's in a lovely location where I walk, and the food is nice. However, I find the staff all a bit... More

Just arrived in Derry and told our dog was a health risk and the owner would loose her food licence if he came off the prom - what a really really cold welcome to Derry after 30 mins in from Gigha. Compare this with tonight where we were welcomed to an overflowing Bistro in the Craft Village with super food... More

I'm sitting having a coffee in Starbucks, Crescent Link Retail Park, L'Derry at 5.00pm on Saturday 30 August 2014 because, at 4.40pm, my wife and I were turned away from the Coffee House. Starbucks food and coffee might not be as good as The Coffee House, and the location is definitely no match ... BUT AT LEAST THEY 'RE OPEN!!... More

Great little place with great staff, views of the river and highly recommend the home made scones - especially strawberry and white chocolate!

Food in here is lovely. I'm a regular visitor in here but *some* of the staff can be quite rude - in particular the owner, who stands watching every last rice krispie leave her cafe and every single penny coming in with a shrewd eye. She wants your money and wants you out. Although the staff are usually friendly as... More

When we are back in Derry visiting friends and family we always pop into the coffee house, once or twice for lunch. The views are amazing, it's on a great walk way for the little ones, who also love the variety of cakes available and so do the mum/dads. The staff have always been very friendly and attentive, when we've... More

Like Jennifer M I was also there on the morning of Saturday July. 12th. I was one of the ladies who wished to use the bathroom. The staff member used no manners in telling us no! We had planned a coffee gathering there after our run. They have now lost our custom and many more. Good manners are free. Someone... More

Between me and the there three of my friends we were there every day for the two weeks that we were in Ireland. We were staying at the Apartotel and this was the perfect location for us to pop in for a great cup of coffee to start our day out right. Or to enjoy a breakfast bap or sandwich... More

A sandwich bar/coffee shop with comfortable seating, indoors and out, and excellent views up and down the Foyle. Excellent coffee.
