Located just off the main Belfast / Dublin road near Hillsborough / Lisburn, this is a quiet oasis. Well enough decorated, its pretty average with nothing really outstanding. Not as big a menu as it used to have, its still alright. Coffee, tea and traybake much as you'd expect. Staff are friendly and service is good. Great pet shop and... More

This was an ok cafe set in a shop, the food was to be expected, the normal scones, cakes, Homebase's etc. Staff pleasant, price was fair, it's the sort of place where you go for a coffee and then browse round the shop , fine for a ladies afternoon gossip session

Staff were very friendly on arrival, good choice of menu. I had the open prawn salad which was tasty but I would have liked more salad as there wasn't much on mine. My fiancé had the club sandwich which he thoroughly enjoyed. For the place being packed the service was good and staff went out of their way to please... More

I had forgotten about this spot & am reluctant to review it in case it becomes more popular, as it is a little hidden gem. My wife and I have now visited several times & sampled the mini PG breakfast, the... More

The service was a bit slow however the restaurant was absolutely packed so this was understandable. Food was lovely and staff very friendly.
