I really like going to roughans ice cream/cafe/shop for something different.
Their ice creams are extremely tasty, creamy and have some innovative flavours. The ice cream served here ain't your everyday vanilla, choclate and mint etc but lots of exciting new flavours and creations. If you want you can sit upstairs with your icecream and grab a tea or coffee and enjoy the stunning views across the promonade.

Lovely coffee shop tucked away above the newsagents shop, could miss it easily if you didn't know where to look. Food ok, nothing really special, but good for a quick bite of lunch or coffee. Lovely views over the Prom/Harbour from window tables.

Service ok but tables not usually cleared until next customer sits down. Settees getting a bit shabby, floor usually needs brushed.Communal toilets which I personally do not like.

Found this gem of a coffee shop on a recent trip North. Food was great and service friendly but the star attraction was the ice cream, which was out of this world!
The views from this first floor cafe have to be seen to be believed - the best in Portstewart. Looking forward to our next visit already.

As far as I can see the only cafe in Portstewart that serves great coffee. Matched by the outstanding views and great selection of traybakes and scones

Myself and my friends went to Roughan's on Saturday morning. We were told that there was a lovely view from the cafe. Indeed there was but the standard of food was appalling. We opted for toasties and coffee, we thought we'd play safe. The coffee wasn't bad, not great, but not bad. The toasties, however, were disgusting, made with no care or pride, made from the cheapest versions of the ingredients and over-cooked. I was the only one who went for brown bed and mine was just about edible. The others were made from disgustingly thin burnt white bread and the fillings were awful. There was no garnish save for a couple of pathetic potato chips. And they did not give us napkins. It was pricy enough £20 for three toasties and three coffees. All of us felt sick for the following few hours. The place was packed so the locals don't seem to notice or care. We tour a lot as a group of friends. This the first time I have ever felt compelled to write one of these reviews, just as a warning to anyone who thinks of going near this place. An utter disgrace.
