Quaint cafe for breakfast

It was a rainy day so we sat inside, however on a nice day it would be great to sit outside with the view of the Harbour. In saying that, our seat inside also had a view. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The service was fast and efficient and the food was lovely. My friend and I had... read more

Being my first time in NI I foolishly asked for a 'Full English' when I ordered this food. I corrected myself promptly, as my partner had already informed me of how proud the good people of NI are of THEIR breakfast. The staff were lovely, helpful and kind. The tea was nice, and the fry up was even better! I... More

We didn't have much choice, really. This cafè was one of the few, if not the only one, open during a Sunday morning on December on the whole coastal route. It's a nice place, right on the sea and the view is amazing. The cafè itself is very clean and you feel welcomed. The food it's not that great though.... More

When in Carnlough, I usually manage to fit in a fry in Harbour Lights! There's a great view of the harbour from a number of the tables, and the fry itself is very tasty, & cheaper than a lot of other places. So, if you haven't already sampled the food there, I'd recommend you do, as long as - by... More

This little café is beautifully situated above Carnlough's picturesque arch in the centre of the village. It is restful and attractive with a lovely outdoor section with marvellous views. From inside in the window tables you have a wonderful view of Carnlough's historic harbour. The food is very reasonably priced - freshly cooked and with plenty of choice. Good breakfasts... More

Certainly nothing fancy, but relatively good food with good service at cheap prices. Certainly would return if I ever wanted a little brunch when in Carnlough.

Situated upstairs- the lift is out of action- the views over the harbour are lovely. The food is freshly cooked and extremely cheap. The menu revolves around the famous Ulster fry. Sadly the quality of the ingredients is very poor, apart from the eggs. If you want quantity over quality for very little cost this is place.
