One of the most popular coffee shops in the area. Amazing petit menus; their soups are so delicious with a constantly changing variety to die for, especially the cream of celery and also the cream of tomato which is our favourite with basil. A very popular innovation is their Gluten Free Fridays Once inside, the place is beautiful and authentic,... More

I had mentioned to my friend Pauline about a bad vegetarian experience I had recently and she suggested we try the Camphill Organic food shop and cafe in Holywood. She was right. The setting was quaint and had an "earthy" quality about it. The food, we both chose the quiche of the day, was absolutely delicious. The place was clean,... More

The vegetables on sale are always of a first class quality. We had our lunch here on Thursday and as always, the staff were very efficient and friendly. The menu is vegetarian and there was a great choice. I had sandwiches and my friend had a salad. Both were beautifully presented and delicious. The atmosphere was very friendly and relaxed.... More

Visited this cafe after finding review on trop advisor.went mainly as sister and niece gluten free. Very disappointed. It was about 2:30 pm not much atmosphere. Choice of cakes both gluten and non gluten was limited to scones, brownies, vanilla cup cake or almond and pear tart.. what we had was nice but couldn't rave about it. Won't be back... More

This is a charming simple cafe with great coffee and tea and snacks and also light lunches...and the warm feeling you are actually helping others through this charity. The Cafe has staff from other countries who are on work experience here and will eventualy be back in their own countries helping others.

Camphill is ok. Food is ok. Drinks and hospitality is ok. Nothing really stands out about it to be honest.
