eat lunch in here regulararly with the girls from work. Today had the most lovely lunch, Sandwich, potato and leek soup and a rasberry ruffle cake for dessert, was to die for this and a drink came to 8.85 which can be a bit expensive but was worth it. Will definitley be back.

Excellent food - pity about the atmosphere in the Coffee House not a pleasant place to eat. Staff very quiet no friendly atmosphere very business like manner. Due to this don't think I would visit again other than for convenience.

Spotted this small café on the walk along the Foyle's bank and decided to pop in for a coffee - the view is beautiful and their tray bakes are generous as well as tasty - a leisurely stop off for a short break and a nice view from the outdoor seating, weather permitting!

new to trip advisor but not to reading reviews from around the country. If you are looking for a tasty cup of coffee and fast efficient service this is the spot. Staff friendly and polite. The little cakes are also amazing! Perfect for a relaxing hour to yourself after work before going home to sort out the kids :)

This is a beautiful cafe in a beautiful location beside the River Foyle. The Counter never fails to impress with the vast array of different scones, traybakes and other treats. Called in with my fiancee and her mother for some lunch a few months back. The place was packed to the gills which was great to see. As I sat... More

This place has it all. Great location on the riverside. Very good coffee. Tasty tray bakes. And then it goes and ruins it with cranky and idiosyncratic service which can be rude at times. I wish it well because on the basis of the coffee and food it deserves too but it needs to sort out the service issues.
