Outstanding home baked cakes

I try to visit this little café each time I "come home" to Northern Ireland. Avril's welcome is second to none and she does most of the baking herself. Her delicious fresh vegetable soup is so warming on a cold day. I can thoroughly agree with previous comments about her scones and it is lovely... read more

Lovely little cottage cafe. Very nice tables inside, but good to sit in the sunshine at the outside tables overlooking Dunluce Castle. Great choices on offer, but the cheese cake/lemon tart with raspberries was outstanding!

A charming quirky cafe that looks like your front sitting room nestling at Dunluce Castle. You will find a warming fire, great hospitality and without doubt the best cream scones on the North Coast all served in vintage crockery. Avril, the host made our visit memorable and my 93 yr old uncle seconds that. This is a great pit stop... More

Unusual tiny cottage opposite Dunluce Castle - outside tables with view of castle and inside armchairs next to the fire in this small house. I had the best fruit and cream scone I have ever tasted - wonderful scone piled with fresh strawberries and raspberries as well as cream. My husband had an equally good cake!

We popped into the Wee Cottage following a trip around Dunluce Castle. This is basically a one room enterprise, serving the tastiest sandwiches we found on the North Coast! Plus beautiful tray bakes / cakes! The staff were very friendly - it felt like you were really just part of the family dropping in for lunch! Definitely a find!

We stumbled in from a very blowy attempt to look at Dunluce Castle and stepped into what looked like a cross between someones front room with cosy sofas in front of the fire place, and a mother and toddler outing with tables full of mums and babies. On the sofas were four musicians jamming away every now and again. We... More

We stopped here for lunch thinking it was a normal little cafe. How wrong were we???? You walk in through the doorway, past a few tacky souvenirs and come to a tiny counter. There are a wide variety of traybakes and cakes. The menu is small but when we asked for soup, there were three types available. I had the... More
