Busy little cafe in a beautiful spot

Visited here while passing through the area. We stopped to admire the beautiful harbour, then popped in here for a cup of tea. Decided to have a sandwich with our pot of tea and glad we did. It was lovely and fresh and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Enjoyed an excellent filled soda. Great hospitality as always. What I love about Harbour Lights is that you always get an excellent meal at a very reasonable price

Looking for lunch after a bit of a walk .... thankfully service quite slow so able to see what was being served at other tables .. Reasonably priced basic fare ... however, saw several people pushing around food on a plate and we did not blame them as it looked a little unappetising. Had ordered two coffees - only filter...

Great food and service. Amazing spot over looking the harbour. Definitely worth stopping at if you are travelling the causeway coastal route.

My friend and I decided to go for lunch in Carnlough and called in to Harbour lights. The food was beautiful, so tasty and the staff were so friendly and polite. Hats off to the chef. They also have homebaked, shortbread, applepie which were delicous, even took some home.

Stopped here for breakfast on a day trip up the coast road. The staff where really friendly and the food was excellent. Your tea and coffee are free too if you are there before 12:30. Quite a busy wee spot with the locals which is always a good sign. If you're are feeling up for it try the "Mouth of... More

Stopped here for lunch on our way to Cranny Falls.We ordered three small fries, garlic wedges with cheese and bacon and three kids meals of sausagges and chips. All dishes were freshly prepared and well priced. Sadly everything was slightly on the greasy side.

If you have the privilege of enjoying a drive up the North Antrim coast a stop for a tea and scone is a must at the Harbour Lights Cafe. Overlooking the harbour the tea is fantastic I recommend either sharing a full Irish Breakfast or the mini breakfast for just you. Love the chips and scones too. Great food and... More
