So easy to pop in as you walk Derrys walls. If you have an interest in the spoken word, poetry and literature great venue.

We stopped at Bloom's cafe here, while walking round the Walls of Derry. It is located within the interesting venue of the Verbal Arts Centre, which had a great photo exhibition, and a good variety of interesting books for sale. The cafe was a very pleasant space, with really fresh, tasty home-made soups and sandwiches, at very reasonable prices.

Called in for coffee and a scone. Nice atmosphere but the service was a bit haphazard. We asked for 2 plain scones and got 1 fruit and 1 cherry !! The jam and cream were definitely needed as they were a bit dry, sorry.

Walking Derry's walls, this is a spacious modern place for a mug of tea, snack and browse through the bookshelves. Friendly, good value.

On a walk around Derry's city walls we came across this small cafe attached to the Verbal Arts Centre. The cafe offers a simple lunch/cafe menu with daily specials all well cooked and presented and of very good value. The owners/proprietors were friendly and accommodating even when faced with difficult customers asking to rearrange their tables to accommodate a larger... More
