Visited here for breakfast on several occasions during a recent holiday in Ballycastle. Great decor loved all the 'campervans'. Excellent choice of breakfasts, served piping hot. Staff were lovely and very helpful in particular the young lady on the counter! Great views across the marina! Would recommend for breakfast

Overlooks the marina below with the best seats hugging the windows. Find a table, claim it with people or clothing, and get in the cafeteria line. Pay, sit down, and wait for your order to be brought to you. Fast and pleasant waitstaff. The town is charming as it rides up and down the hilly streets.

This place was recommended as a good place for breakfast while waiting for the Rathlin Ferry. Plain home cooking did not dissapoint. Reasonable cost and friendly staff.

Just had lunch with friends, the cafe was buzzing but tables were readily available. All the staff were welcoming. The selection of food is quite extensive. Our choices were well presented and all very tasty. Will definitely be back!
