On our way from Ballycastle to Belfast we found this hidden gem. Very diverse menu and attentive staff made this a great spot to stop. It was crowded by mid morning so go early!

excellent salads and soups. Welcoming and friendly service. If the weather is good, there are tables for outside seating. Everything was fresh.

Visited for lunch today while passing through, enticed in by the range of Gluten Free items available, as my friend is Coeliac. Food was nice.. Standard fare, and the staff were nice.

I have been here a couple times as I have family in the area and it has been good, but the most recent time I was here I ordered the chicken enchiladas, a traditional mexican dish. What came out was a thai sweet chilli chicken...wrap with cheese on top. I don't like sweet chilli sauce anyway but the dish shouldn't have been advertised as an enchilada. In general it was unappetising and slightly bland. Afterwards I got the baileys chocolate cake and practically inhaled it. It was rich and fudgey and all round amazing. The staff were friendly and helpful and for this reason I would go back again.More

My wife and I stopped in to relax and recharge over a cup of coffee, after a drive through the Healy Pass, and a meander to Castletownbere. The setting is cheery, the staff was warm and friendly, and the coffee was fresh, hot, and good....Patrons seemed to be a mixture of locals as well as travelers like ourselves-- all seemed at ease.More
