The food and speed of service were fine. The staff seem pleasant in their interactions with other staff but is there a policy that staff should not smile at customers? Really cold as well but can't be too hard on them for that because of...the current cost of heating. Leaving now ...More

My family was visiting Northern Ireland from the U.S. We loved this restaurant so much that we visited this restaurant twice during our visit. It’s very family friendly, the food is delicious, and the service is great.

Called on Sunday around 12.45pm. Was advised there was a waiting time for food. Told the girl behind the till that was fine as we just wanted coffee and traybakes. So we ordered 1x tin fizzy orange , 1x Americano 2 smoothies and a caramel...square. I got my tin straight away and we sat down for the wait........and we waited as 6/7 members of staff kept passing by in a chaotic manner. After around 20mins I managed to speak to a member of staff to try and find where our order was. To which she replied you need to order at thd counter. I informed her we had. (Bearing in mine I had my drink and a table number). After about another ten minutes the drinks finally arrived. But no traybake! I had my orange finished by then, with no offer of a glass or ice. Bill was around £15, and we walked out wishing we'd just had a coffee at home. Pure chaos...More

Called in earlier, maybe half full, with a Customer in front of me paying for a takeaway. Once they settled up, I waited for 2/3 minutes, waiting for at least an acknowledgement before I was actually served. Alas, no, 5 or 6 Staff members behind...the counter, total ignorance of my presence, I simply left without making a purchase. I notice the prior 3/4 reviews have given a poor scoring and a similar story, I guess no one in this place reads Tripadvisor to take note of their poor customer focusMore

Saturday morning treat with the children, after 30min wait, and being ignored at the till when trying to pay for the extra drinks because the children had finished theirs, I’m afraid we won’t be back.

My husband and I used to love this place but the last 2 times we've gone in the service has been atrocious. The first time we ordered coffees and apple tart and cream. Coffees came eventually and I had to go to the counter twice...to ask what was keeping the apple tart. The second time it was coffee and german biscuits which took a ridiculous amount of time to come. Service has gone cometely downhill and like anotherreviewer I would recommend people to try some of the other coffee shops in Carrickfergus.More

What Creed does, it does well, though they are risk of becoming a victim of their own success….it certainly seemed that way after my last visit. I popped in for a quick coffee on Friday. The place was very busy, warm and loud. Staff seemed...flustered with dockets all over the place. The customer in front was told deli items would be at least half an hour, thankfully my order was pretty simple. I opted to sit outside…..where I waited 20minutes, gave up and went in to ask for my coffee to go. After another couple of minutes standing at the counter watching the staff run about like headless chickens and ignore me, I gave up and left….no sit down coffee, no take away coffee, no refund. I don’t know how to run a business….but it certainly isn’t this way.More

Staff friendly but could do with being better organised, once order is taken and number given far too long a wait then confusion over what was ordered, coffee eventually came. An order of cheese burger at £8.45 with not even a little side salad is...poorly presented and to my mind overpriced. Someone needs to take charge and presentation needs some thought. Well located and seems busy but think it’s worth trying all the coffee shops in Carrickfergus to compare, think I will be doing that and suggest others might do the same, support all our businessesMore

So this is becoming a favourite place to get breakfast. We've so far tried the breakfast platter, amazing. Breakfast wraps, French toast, pulled pork with poached eggs.. and tried some of the deserts too. Presentation of the food here is great. Frozen drinks are delicious....We love it hereMore

It's a shame because the food and coffee here is lovely, however you must be prepared to wait for at least 45mins on your order/food to arrive. Even for something as simple as a cup of coffee or a plate of pancakes. Won't be back...as the customer service is woeful, and from watching the staff operate behind the counter it looks absolutely chaotic, management needs to be better to fix this. This has been experienced each time, across 3 recent visits.More

hi M B... please can you state when this visit was? I would be very concerned at a wait of 45 mins for a coffee and pancakes, although at busy periods a wait is to be expected as we are not a fast food restaurant...More

Varied menu for a relatively small cafe although breakfast stops at 12 when the modern trend is for all day availability. Coffee is good and food ok, will get there before noon next time! Just try and have the tables cleared and cleaned.

We popped in for a quick bite, and after being ignored by the staff, endured a ridiculously long wait for a panini and a wrap. Bit pricey for all that it was, and the food is nothing special but at least it was edible. Poor...all round and we will not be back.More

Recently purchased 2 peanut butter stacks from the shop in Carrickfergus, was shocked when the total came to £9, this is far too expensive for 2 tray bakes. I'd think management would need to have another look at cost price on items in the shop.More
