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.

We usually call at Quay Eats opposite the harbour but it was closed so asked the greengrocer for a recommendation and he suggested " The Harbour Lights". All looked good, great view over the harbour. The menu was the usual fare and very reasonably priced so we ordered a small breakfast, and tomatoes on toast. As was feared the quality... More

Stopped by here for a brunch. It was a Friday morning, not too busy - luckily we arrived as the tour bus was departing. Only a few other customers in. Very clean dining area. Staff were pretty good and pleasant. Between the five of us we had a variety of things from the menu - all pretty good. The coffee... More

This little gem overlooks the scenic Carnlough harbour. My partner and I called in for breakfast a few weeks ago. I ordered a large fry up (£4.95 and my partner ordered a small one (£2.95). The prices included tea and toast. I had some concerns that the quality of the food may have suffered due to the fact that the... More

Whilst driving along the East coast of Northern Ireland, my partner and I stopped in this sweet little town of Carnlough for some quick lunch and decided to give this place a try. Was impressed with the large portions at such good prices. The food was good and staff very friendly. Great place to stop for a quick lunch :)

We stopped here for late breakfast before a walk around the harbour and I have never had such a great fry! The sausages were great, the bacon was grat and the eggs were great!!!
