Great service and excellent food. We had a great lunch here. The location is right inside the walled city.

Called in for a light lunch. So helpful regarding my gluten free diet. My gluten free sandwich and husbands ordinary wrap excellent. Well priced and they really clean tables well between customers

Have visited this coffee shop on numerous occasions and finally got around to writing a review. The coffee is really good and you can order a small cup unlike those well known multi nationals like costa and Nero. The staff are friendly and helpful. All...the delicious sandwiches with a wide choice of fillings are freshly prepared in front of you. The freshly baked scones are very tasty and served with butter jam and fresh cream. Actually a bit too large for one person and better shared between two. Free WiFi is available and a very informative tour of the city walls can be booked from here. Highly recommended.More

With a 20% off voucher through the McCrossan City Tour we headed to this Cafe located right next to one of the City Gates, It was clean and spacious with very quick high quality food service at a good price- well worth a visit.

Absolutely disgusting, ordered the healthy artiesse and there was meant to be avocado on the bread, came without that, and also found hairs in the food, would not recommend. Eggs were dry and clearly reheated from previous day/days.

This is my favourite place in town. Despite being closed now for what feels like a million years, we walked in and the staff pretty much had our order ready. The food is unpretentious, and the bakes are just great.

Was in Derry today to finish off a few weeks Christmas bits and popped in to Java for a coffee and scones with my husband. Scones were perfect, still warm from the oven,served with homemade jam and cream,so flavoursome. We were offered more coffee and...before we left a lady came round with individually wrapped slices of Christmas cake to take home. Java is spotless with friendly efficient staff and give a great welcome so we will definitely be back. Thank you java and merry Christmas to you hard working staffMore

Great tea and lovely scones in bright modern cafe in a central location and all excellent value. Visited after our city walls tour, which gave us discount vouchers.

Popular cafe serving sandwiches, toasties, tray bakes, soup. Hot and cold drinks. A nice simple layout. Staff were lovely and chatty. It was a wet day so soup and a sandwich was very welcome. Sandwiches were well filled. Plenty of fillings to choose from. Enjoyable...lunch stop.More
