Went to the Guild Cafe for lunch on Monday as they are taking part in the Eat Out to Help out Scheme. I had the Coronation Chicken Wrap which was lovely. I would recommend it. The only issue I had was I felt the options...were fairly limited. Other than that a nice cafe. There is both indoor and outdoor seating available.More

Nice cafe , but spoiled for me when I observed a large bluebottle in the glass display counter.it was trapped in there by a piece of muslin, meant for keeping it out! It was flitting around landing on both wraps, panini’s etc, and the sweet...pastries. I pointed this out to the young lady serving, but she only very half-heartedly tried to remove it. I was unable to order anything because of this and just had coffee. Disappointing!More

Good tea (Suki) and coffee, sandwiches and cake. Pleasant staff. Great location at the back of the Guildhall.

The service was super friendly, but the food did not taste at all. I mean it was okay, but it’s not brilliant. This is definitely not a 4,5/5, I’m sorry. It must be said, that the food was looking fabulous. So summarized it’s a 2,5/5.

Perfectly located at the Guildhall, and overlooking the river, this little gem is a relaxing spot to enjoy a coffee and scone. No blaring music, just a calm ambience and efficient service.

Up for business meeting and called in here before heading back to Belfast. What a lovely place to spend time in such a fabulous building! Will keep it in mind for next time!

Had the pleasure of using Cafe Guild for large catering. The kindest of staff and the yummiest traybakes. They are so hardworking and professional, couldn't do enough for us. They made a very stressful day easier which was brilliant. Thank you very much, Claire and...Cafe Guild.More

Great location and a very friendly but harried staff since the place seems like it's always busy. I had the soup and soda bread and it was very tasty. There's a good size patio adjacent but folks seem to linger a very long time but...there are lots of trees to sit under for take out.More

We stopped in here to get some goodies after strolling about Derry and exploring Guildhall. The person who helped up was friendly and cheerful. The prices seemed to be not too bad and the snacks were yummy. Although the patio area was not open, we...took our snacks outside to wait for our tour bus.More
