We were in Ballycastle very briefly and, being hungry, plumped for the first food we saw. The Bay Cafe turned out to be an excellent 'choice' - superb tasty all-day breakfast (good value at £5.50, including pot of tea), spotlessly clean, brilliant view across the bay, efficient and friendly staff (as you'd expect in Northern Ireland).

A real Irish breakfast served here. The staff were lovely and really friendly. The views are really lovely. We only had breakfast but the rest of the menu looked lovely. We did have a piece of Victoria sandwich as take away and it was delicious.

The Bay Cafe is probably the most efficiently run cafe I've ever experienced. The staff are most welcoming and the selection of food is fantastic. We ate here twice for late breakfasts in May 2014 and the food was first class. The location, right on the harbour couldn't be better either. An easy recommendation.

Stopped off for a bit of brunch and opted for the fry. Great portion and all cooked very well, not great for the waistline but very tasty. Cracking view and the service was not bad as well. Well worth the money and well worth a visit.
