Description: 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.

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.

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 don't even get me started in the quiche for lunch! Wow. Often, we go in for breaky and end up coming away with a box of tiffin or quiche to take away. I just can't resist.

On top of that the owner and staff are just so friendly and welcoming, and the prices are really reasonable. The only downside is that it's apparently this 'hidden gem' has been discovered, because it's very small inside and can be tricky getting a table. Worth a try though!

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 seating is limited x

DJ's is a must when visiting Pontefract, the coffee is made to the individuals liking and the best there is, team up with mouth-watering pastries or scones (all home made) and friendly staff mix together giving a continental bistro style experience.
