While enjoying our complimentary tea we also partook of the delicious pastries, cakes, etc. offered for sale here. The Mint Biscuit Cake was heavenly!

Tea and scones in this establishment is a "must do" whilst in Derry. Find yourself time to seek this busy cafe and "scone your self " . Also buy tkts here for the walking tour £4 and avail yourself to a free coffee with each tkt bought, bargain !!

This little coffee shop is near Foyleside shopping centre. It is small and well-run.Java is often packed with tourists as well as locals.The staff are friendly and attentive. Java is ideal for a snack or light bite.The food is freshly prepared and the scones are exceptionally good. Don't miss out on the strawberry and white chocolate variety!Prices are reasonable and...

Firstly we went to order our breakfast and got a very terse and frosty reception from the person who took our order. Then the food came, the beans on my partners fry were congealed. My scrambled egg was like rubber. I would not recommend breakfast here.

I came here in October and luckily remembered where this great little café was. The big cherry scones are delicious and the coffee is freshly prepared. All the staff are so friendly and welcoming. This place is a must when visiting Derry.
