What a find at short notice on the day we arrived in Bushmills. Excellent Irish stew and wheaten bread to die for! The team could not do enough to accommodate us nor the other visitors that came through the door after us.

It started out with a first visit to try the cooked breakfast here and has become a tradition that we look forward to every time we are in the area. The range of breakfasts remains a feature but for us the mini fry does it all! Come early on a Saturday morning because this is always popular and you may... More

As we were leaving the Giant's Causeway we asked a man named Sammy (we assume he was a street worker) where he recommended we eat lunch. He told us to try the Copper Kettle in town. He gave us directions (super easy from the Causeway by the way). We were happy we stopped int. It wasn't busy when we arrived... More

We have been to this cafe a few times over the years although not our first choice usually in Bushmills. Thought we'd give it a go on a bright Sunday morning. I ordered a soda bread and asked for it to be toasted. I was told brusquely that they couldn't do that because they were busy. Although another patron was... More

Excellent breakfast with friends. Vegetarian breakfast is very good if you don't like sausages. Add a couple of rashers of bacon if you are not vegetarian. Almost no grease.

Several options available in town, we needed something satisfying and substantial after our bracing visit to the Giant's Causeway and so chose this cafe come restaurant. Not busy so service was very quick. Staff were friendly and quick to accommodate our request for a non-meat breakfast. Whilst eating I overheard a German customer comment that he was lactose intolerant, the... More
