Friendly coffee shop with loads of lovely home made treats to choose from. Piping hot cappuccino and delicious milkshakes. Our favourite Saturday afternoon treat!

Dropped in for lunch but I was a bit disappointed. The sandwich took quite sometime to arrive and the bread was dry. The presentation was really good but because the whole sandwich was very dry I did not really enjoy it.

I love this little gem! There is always a wonderful variety of cakes and creme patisserie, home-made by the owner and they are so delicious! The coffee is lovely, but they also serve a variety of other hot & cold drinks, including a tempting variety of milkshakes. The savoury food is also home made - the quiches are yummy! -... More

I've been to DJs so many times now I can't count - it's the best little cafe in Pontefract by miles. I've had breakfast - lovely bacon sarnies, waffles with chocolate spread, toasted teacakes...all fantastic. I've stopped by for coffee and cake - the cakes and pastries are incredible. The smell hits you as soon as you walk in. And... More

I call in here often as the coffee is the best in town The staff are lovely and really helpful. Cakes, tarts and quiches are home baked and far too delicious to resist. If I was pinned down for a negative it would be the fact that it is so hot inside (quite small) so we always sit out where... More

We are a small, friendly, American diner style cafe serving delicious homemade dishes. Our quiches and paninis are renowned in the area as are our fabulous cakes and pastries, all handmade by French owner, Richard. Snacks include bacon and/or sausage sandwiches, fruit teacakes and a fabulous selection of homemade fruit or cheese scones. Our special blend of coffee brings customers from miles around and receives daily compliments from all nationalities. Fancy a cold drink? Why not try our frappes or healthy yet delicious smoothies, the ever popular thick shake (huge choice of flavours - all colour and additive-free) or one of our chocolate bar shakes. All available to take-out also.
