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!

Smashing little cafe. Had breakfast here before an early trip across to Rathlin. Had great looking scones and cakes that we didn't try but will do next time we are in town!
