Great place, friendly, efficient service. Very tasty stew, good portions and reasonably priced. Yummy desserts and lovely pot of tea which was filled again at no extra cost. Thanks for a great lunch.

“Tasty Cafe Food at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

Taken here at the beginning of the Derry City Tour by Martin McCrossan. About 10 of us ordered lunch and we were in a bit of a hurry so I wondered if the service would be quick. Very happy to say that the orders went through quickly and we were all served well. You order at the counter and they bring the food to you.

Food was tasty - home from home cooking. Jacket Ps with fillings or sandwiches,soups and salads.

Nothing posh here but good value food.

“Lovely Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

Visited this cafe after taking the Martin McCrossan Walking Trip of Derry. Food absolutely beautiful. Us 5 girls had the homemade soups, scones, wrap & pannini - all lovely and freshly made. Staff were very pleasant and cafe was extremely clean and cheerful. Would certainly go back if I am back in Derry.
