ok

Make good scones, be sure you ask for toasties to be fairly well done. On our last 2 visits our coffee lattes were lukewarm as opposed to a bit hotter.

My husband and I ate here Sunday 24th January and we had a lovely welcoming experience. I have in the past had issues but on this occasion every thing about the experience was first rate. We were welcomed at the counter and a table found very quickly as it was really busy with cyclists. The food o itself was beautiful... More

This is a nicely situated little restaurant, boasting a beautiful setting overlooking the River Foyle. It's unfortunate that the pleasant vista is not etched on the faces of the two female proprietors who, during my visit, appeared as if they were eating raw rhubarb! I noticed that food was stored above where filled rubbish bags were placed and I was... More

The "sour bake" owners look so miserable. I have spoken to so many people who have boycotted this place because of their lack of friendliness and customer service. I must say their baking is nice but I don't want a scone that much! Sitting in the cafe you feel so uncomfortable as the unfriendly sour dough bake at the till... More

I work close to this coffee house and have been in to buy my lunch 6/7 times. Few months ago I made a conscious decision to stop giving them my money. (I'm not the only person at my large office who has stuck to this decision either.) Firstly, the girls behind the counter are lovely, can't fault them. It's the... More

It's a real shame about this coffee shop it's in a wonderful location, it does serve fab cakes/pastries but the service leaves a lot to be desired. That's not to say that all the staff are rude some of the girls on the counter are super friendly but fighting a battle that can't be won unless the owners/management are serious... More

I have vowed never to return here because of what I witnessed a few years ago with children refused the toilet, however due to it's convenience and great food and coffee I found myself in the area and in need of a cuppa. Coffee was lovely and not too hot, sandwiches beautiful and bread very fresh. Tray bakes were tasty... More

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.
