Any time we go away on hols are just try another place we always compare it to this great little place. Smack in the middle of the town right beside all the main shops... More

Very disappointing cafe. Definitely to many tables and not enough space between them. The food is bland and look warm. The staff are pleasant but constantly on their mobiles behind the counter which doesn't look very professional. Price wise I'd rather pay a bit more for a tastier meal. Layout really does need changed.

If you're looking for somewhere clean, friendly or with a pleasant atmosphere go somewhere else. To be fair the food is actually ok but it's all over the floor from the last patrons and the grunts from the server when you ask where the toilet is doesn't help at all. Generally a soulless please that has the opportunity to be... More

Had two breakfasts in here and the frys are always cooked really well and neatly presented. Not to bad a price for everything you get and the best part of all is the eggs are perfect!

This restaurant has been there for years and serves the most fantastic full Irish breakfast at a price which is very low. Staff are friendly and as well as the all day breakfast they have an extensive lunch menu - also very well priced for Ballymena pockets. A real insider tip if you want a great Irish breakfast at any... More

Eaten here quite a few times. Usually have the large breakfast. Comes out well cooked though like a lot of places at dinnertime the breakfast items do seem to have been at least partly cooked earlier and then finished off or reheated to order. Often to have to sit at a table that hasn't been cleared and wait for it... More

I've been here a few times. Food is good and it's excellent value for money. But the staff really need customer service training! They are very unfriendly and everything seems to be a bother. Even a simple smile would help! For this reason, I won't be back.

Really enjoyed the £6.95 special. The service ok. Sadly the place is really full a lot of the time. However the food is great.
