Tasty lunch

Nice food and nice staff. Good prices and quick service. Looking for somewhere to lunch in Carrickfergus this would be the place. Menu has a good bit of variety.

Been here for all three but most recently for breakfast on a lazy Saturday morning. It's small, nosey and the staff are helpful and polite. The breakfast is super with a good selection and reasonably priced. Whether you want a tasty bagel or a filling cooked breakfast it's a super way to start the day without having to wash up... More

Have passed this place many times and never took the time to give it a go. Partner rectified that last week when she decided it was Ulster Fry time! Staff are excellent, well mannered and friendly.

It took a very long time for our order. I was there late afternoon and it wasn't too busy. We waited 40in for salad, ham and eggs and coffee. It was good food but far too long a wait to want to go back.
