The food here is lovely, fresh and reasonably priced. As a regular lunch time customer there is one thing that lets the place down-the service. 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.

The walking tour is how we found this place (£4 and well with it. John was awesome) The atmosphere is great and they even give you a free tea with your tour.

We came across Java after our brief stop in Derry to explore the city walls, as we were looking for a quick lunch before heading on our way up to Malin Head. It was a great find, with delicious and healthy salads and great tea. A perfect light lunch during a busy day, and the prices were very reasonable.

Thank WBBatlanta
