About Us

We're passionate about cooking

Our History

“Say nothin’ ’til ye see Claude” Claudes takes its name from the well known Derry solicitor Claude Wilton. The tag line “say nothin’ ’til ye see Claude” has become a well known Derry saying. The name Claude was an old nickname of the current owner.

Opened in October 2000 by Declan Moore Claudes is situated in the heart of Derry’s historic walled city, and is just a short stroll from our new “peace bridge” and world famous pubs and restaurants. Over the last 14 years we have been proudly serving our customers in Derry an array of freshly roasted Italian Segafredo coffee and speciality teas. A warm welcoming smile always awaits our customers both regular and new at Claudes and the ambience and atmosphere is always special.

What We Do

Claudes offer an extensive range of daily specials to suit every budget and taste from Homemade Lasagne to our classic Irish stew served with our own award winning homemade scone bread. We also offer a wide range of freshly prepared fillings for our customers to create their own sandwich, Panini, baguette or tortilla wrap. In addition to this we also offer a range of healthy options which include our baked potatoes with a range of fresh salad and choice of fillings from our fresh salad bar.

"Great food and I particularly like the fact that you don't be judged if you have a penchant for combinations of dishes. My friend likes a sandwich but he also likes chicken goujons so they created a goujon sandwich for him."

"Excellent customer service! Ordered a couple of coffees and hot chocolates. My nephew dropped his hot choc as soon as he got outside. Before I got a chance to order another the owner already had one on. Free of charge. Really nice gesture."

"Claudes is a superb, hearty cafe with delicious coffee, top notch sarnies and the most scrumptious selection of deserts 😍 The brownies are a MUST! Staff greet customers with smiling faces and charming Derry humour. Definitely the best cafe in the city. I would highly recommend to a friend."
