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.

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 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
