Ideally located at the locally-renowned Waterloo Place, Willy Nilly's Kitchen & Coffee House offers an inimitable combination of top-quality food with top-quality relaxation. The humbly run company prides itself on high standards of customer service, delicious food and unparalleled comfort.
The homely coffee house sits right in the middle of Waterloo Place
Perfectly situated for those who have just completed their tour of the walled city of Derry/Londonderry, the popularity of this hotspot has grown rapidly in such a short space of time, with both locals and travelling parties warming to Willy Nilly's and their appetising menu.
With plenty of space created within the close-knit coffee house, the establishment offers a varied range of tasty treats and wholesome meals, from shredded or grilled chicken, to pulled pork, char-grilled steak and halloumi, as well as different and delightful salads. Chips, salt n chill chips, sweet potato sides or indeed all three mixed together complete the menu, topped with cheese and Nilly's sauce, with the dish aptly named 'Winning Fries', for the real adventurous in life.
Italian coffee dominates the drinks menu, yet the hugely popular 'Simple Shakes' are also a must-try, ranging from the classics of Vanilla or Strawberry, to the more audacious yet equally delicious Oreo, Nutella or Peanut Butter. Even more exploratory are the idiosyncratic 'Warrior Shakes', served only to the fitness buffs of the world, with the ingredients compiling frozen yoghurt, milk and a generous scoop of whey protein.
Whether you just have a moment to nip in and dip your toes in the water of this creative kitchen, or if you have all the time in the world to relax on the sofas and comfy chairs while looking on into the heart of the city of Derry/Londonderry, Willy Nilly's might just be the best place that you've never even dared to try…until now.
