Homemade mushroom soup & sandwich combo £6. Tomato & pepper soup & sandwich combo. Both soups delicious. Kids shared a kids meal of chicken gougons, beans & chips. Latte, tea & 2 fantastic cost over £21. Service fast. Not too many smiles from staff as they seemed under pressure. 4* because of the lovely soups, otherwise 3*.

This cafe has a good light lunch menu with combos on offer, namely soup and wraps/toasties etc for £6. Good value. The soup was good as was the panini I had. Pleasant and efficient staff, with a manager who has a sense of humour all made this for a pleasant visit.

The service was really slow. But the food was good for a lunch bite. Bit crowded and not enough baby seats to go around.

Hi there, thanks for coming into see us. I am very sorry that you felt service was slow, I can only apologise for this but as you mention in your review we seemed crowded.. As a seasonal town and area we can, during peak times, get really busy and our team works as hard as possible to ensure service remains... More

Nicest coffee in ballycastle, quiet and relaxing. We had heard about how good the coffee and food was, excellent, well worth visiting. Looks and be deceiving.

Great little spot in Ballycastle for lunch. Reviews did not disappoint. Food was fresh and tasty, service was prompt. Can't go wrong with a bowl of fresh made soup and a few slices of the wheaton bread on a drizzly day!

Hi, Thanks for popping in for some soup. Sadly the drizzle this year means tht we are selling loads of soup! We make all our soups from fresh ingredients and stock to ensure they are free from gluten, cream and as low in fat and salt as possible Hope to see you again, Aidan More
