We were late for lunch and found this little gem in Cushendall. This is ultimate home-cooking at it's best. Prepare to seat yourself and grab a menu yourself. They ain't going to give you one. You aren't in a restaurant here. The ambiance is astonishing, great just to sit and watch all paintings stuff and everything. An old pick-up player is playing some really nice tunes. The offer quite a variety of menu items. We went with the daily special (baked potato with a filling of choice) and a ploughman's lunch platter. Both 5-6 pounds only. The ploughman's lunch came with home made soda bread which was the very best we ever had. As a dessert we opted for the cherry-apple crumble with custard (to die for) and just ordered another slice of that awesome soda bread. They shared both the crumble and soda bread recipe so we can make this great food ourselves. Left with a good filled stomach across this beautiful coastline.

Took a friend in for coffee and a scone, I had never been here before. It is small and quaint the scone and coffee were good. It also sells some hand knitted craft items. This is a little café worth trying.

If you fancy a coffee and a snack and are sick of the usual Starbucks-type chains, you'll love this place. A bit twee and traditional, but with great service. Cushendall was largely deserted the day we were there, but this place had a constant stream of locals and tourists keeping it busy. Well worth a visit

Following a squint at TripAdvisor before setting off from Carrickfergus for todays drive up the Antrim Coast,we found parking and arrived in Cafe Revive for our morning break.We opted for a pot of tea for two and shared a cherry scone,while relaxing and looking around the confusion of items on shelves,tables and floor.We also enjoyed a chat with a Dutch couple who were Motorhome travellers spending a couple of weeks in N Ireland.The proprietors were delightful.We shared notes on travel and vinyl records.
