Food is ordered from A hatch at the front of the shop on the main street. Tea collect at that time and food delivered to the table. Tables are all outside in the garden area most undercover. Thought this was a good idea. Only issue...I had was going into the garden no hand sanitiser was available. It was only when I sat down that I found it when I sat down. It was located beside the side door the reason I could not find it was two couples were sitting at tables beside it I did not think I would have to stretch around others to get to the sanitiser. All cutlery and unitesils were disposable and separate bin for each selection was available. Food tasty and as ordered.More

Browns have a great outdoor seating area on the lawn of the church yard next door. This was one of the first places I ate after lockdown at it was as good then as it was before. The food is delicious my personal favourite is...there 4 cheese toasted sandwich and caramel squares. The food is served in a container which can be recycled with wooden cutlery. Love that the owners have considered the environmental impact when offering take away food. You order at a window at the front and then your food is brought to you in the lawn. I would recommend Brown’s to anyone.More

I always think the menu here is a bit limited, but it is a small place and I guess you are better doing less and doing it well that having lots of options. I particularly like the sausage roll and the coffee is always good....They don't open on Saturday, which is a little strange for a coffee shop, but I guess there is a reason for that.More

Love Brown's for their coffee. We can book the cosy meeting room which is comfortable and private for my staff meetings. Look forward to going on my own as well. Staff are lovely.

Passing through Ballyclare today and stopped for a quick cuppa. My husband had cake and coffee. The cake was delicious and the coffee robust and flavourful. I opted for a scone which came with butter, jam and cream... scrumptious. I only drink decaf coffee. Browns...have a special decaf blend which I think is filtered without chemicals being used in the process. Without a doubt a really fragarant balanced coffee, again excellent. The staff are friendly and very attentive and the icing on the cake, we could bring our dog along with us! Cool day but unlike many dog friendly cafes, good shelter, decent seats and blankets provided. Jasper also enjoyed the treats he was brought by the staff! Definitely worth a visit and looking forward to our next time.More
