With no shortage of coffee stops dotted around NI it is nice to enjoy a family owned business. The coffee is excellent and what a choice in pastries. Plenty of space to sit and relax at the back of the shop front and very friendly staff. Well worth a visit.

Ditty's has earned itself an enviable reputation both as a bakery and as a lunch/afternoon tea venue. Prices are very reasonable and the quality of food is faultless. Get there early for the full range of food on offer as they do tend to run out of some things later in the day. Good staff and great food. Enjoy.

I would often call at Ditty's when passing through Castledawson village for a cup of tea and a sandwich. Your choice of sandwich is made to order using their own fresh bread that is baked on the premises and usually finish off with one of their home baked delights.

Called for lunch recently with my mother and husband on route to country down. Both my mother and I had the vegetable soup with wheaten bread which was delicious. My husband had a cheese and salad roll which also was delicious. On this occasion we did not have any of their pastries but they are delicious as we have had... More

Called in for a salad and got a few spoonfuls of lettuce and asked if I wanted tomatoes. Portions tiny and was given two thin tiny Skinny chicken goujons. Found the portion stingy and salad very bland.

My sister ordered her 50th Birthday cake from this venue and can highly recommend. Very light cake which was enjoyed by all.

Despite this I am giving a rating of 4 because prices are reasonable and the salads are very good, although peanuts have no place in a Waldorf salad (which is otherwise excellent). I like the cafeteria style, the dining room and the refurb but whoever did it used too many hard surfaces and the noise level is now too high... More

Great choice of home made food, Ease of parking bright and welcoming. These combine natural ingredients with traditional baking techniques and time honoured recipes. In particular, Ditty’s famous oatcake range are a credit to Robert’s close relationship with producers throughout Ireland and have featured at numerous prestigious events such as the Ryder Cup and Wimbledon as well as being awarded...
