On a long weekend visit to Derry , the Java became our base , all the staff were extremely helpful and friendly, couldn't do enough . We had different soup on a daily basis , the homemade lemon meringue, pear and almond tarts were brilliant. They will happily serve up any dish you want, We cannot recommend highly enough.

Paid a visit a few times and we have always found the food fairly good. The coffee and scones are good value and there always seems to be a crowd. This coffee shop could do with the Grid ceiling being renewed as it is discoloured and the light fittings are missing bulbs.I'm sure the owners must have the cash as... More

The majority of staff are plesant, helpful and courteous however one member in particular lets the place down. Disinterested, borderline rude and takes no care when making your order. The first few times i thought... More

Great to see a local cafe offering superfood salade and juices. So important that places have a healthy option too. That's what I ordered and was not disappointment. I will be back. Lots of variety on the menu too- stew,soups, sandwiches,scones.
