Always look forward to our weekly coffee stop at the Bay Cafe when cycling around the Antrim coast. There is always a buzz about the place but you can always find a seat.

Come here as often as I can, one of the best eating establishments in the North of Ireland. Great way to spend your Saturday morning with a fantastic fry looking over Ballycastle Harbour and beyond. Great staff also and always smiling.

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).
