Good choice of food and very pleasant and helpful staff.Lovely to be served tea in a china cup,always tastes so much better.It would be too easy to have a sample of everything as it is all gorgeous.

Hi there wlgnesbitt thank you very much for your visit to Primrose, I agree the only way to enjoy tea is from a china cup, as you will find all our cups and even mugs for tea are fine bone china, we hope to welcome you back again soon many thanks Melanie More

Very nice, expensive for what it is and not so good coffee. Paid for an 'extra shot' and coffee still weak.

First time in the Primrose cafe after some mixed reviews. The staff were really friendly and helpful. They serve lunches and evening meals and sell wine, beer and spirits. We had coffee and cake which were delicious. The interior is shabby chic. There are a lot of tables packed into the small space but it feels cosy rather than cluttered.... More

Derry's best kept secret. A little gem, hidden away half way up Carlisle Road. Great selection of Teas and Coffees and beautiful cakes to accompany them. Ideal for first dates, you will want to return. Staff always pleasant prompt and polite.
