I have eaten here a few times and the food has always been hot and delicious. I used to come here with my late mother and aunt and the staff and owner couldn't do enough for them. The dinners are scrummy homemade grub. I highly recommend this cafe and will definitely be back.

I've eaten in the Bay Café for years and always enjoy their food. Great scrambled egg, excellent week fry, huge muffins and their Sunday lunch is just what you need. The Bay Café is also on the Ballycastle Food Tour and gets great feedback for their breakfast stack. Highly recommended.

We recently came back from a long weekend in NI. We were a group of 10 and were staying just down the road from The Bay café. We went both days for breakfast! The food was good and the staff very friendly. It is also good value. I would recommend the Bay Café for a hearty breakfast before exploring this... More

The scones... My word they were beautiful! We talked about them all the way home! Beautifully set on the harbour with a beautiful view! Owners are lovely! Take the time to chat even when flat out! Great atmosphere, clean and well worth a visit!
