I've been here a couple of times on my visit to Ballycastle. Good coffee and a great lentil soup - perfect on a cold, rainy winter's day. What a pity they don't have a fireplace!

The food is good value for money and the staff very helpful! Nothing special but would definitely go again!! Generally child friendly but was a bit disappointed on one visit when they said they couldn't do a boiled egg for my 1 year old!!

Stumbled on this place as there is parking out front and it was raining. Simple food, but very fresh and good at a good price. Friendly staff and a great view of the bay, a real gem.
