Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We visited this amazing little cafe on our Northern Ireland holiday. It was delightful. We had the best coffee of our holiday with delicious cakes. We were given such a warm welcome that we actually returned on our way to the airport for one last...coffee.More

Home Sweet Home is the most fitting name for this awesome cafe/gift shop - You truly do feel so welcomed by the two delightful staff members and the awesome food. I was shocked at the low prices they charge for their incredible home cooked treats...and lunch type meals. The two staff members made you feel like you were at home, so welcoming and kind - they definitely added to the already fantastic experience. The Chocolate Coca Cola cake was delicious, a seemingly odd combination works really well!!! The gifts were awesome and examples of local talent, showing this cafes representation of its community! If you are in the area I would absolutely recommend stopping by (as it is conveniently located on the Main Street), low prices, awesome vibe, great food. 5/5.More

As any good Irish person will tell you, their granny makes the best apple tart, and any you get in a cafe, etc, isn't just as good. But Rhonda's, from home sweet home, Donaghadee, is Granny good. Absolutely divine 5*

This cafe is a jewel in Donaghadee. From the minute you open the door until the minute you leave the customer is made to genuinely feel welcome. Something that is missing in other places (not Donaghadee I hasten to add). There is a warm friendly...atmosphere. The menu is familiar and beautifully presented on dainty China. A welcome addition in the cafe is a range of books, cards and gifts. Upcycling is encouraged through the sale of Annie Sloan paint. All baking is home made, a visit is a must.More

This is a homely and comfortable cafe, full of conversation and warmth. All the food is home cooked and made to perfection. The venue is full of colour and creativity, with lots to pass your eyes over whilst you enjoy your time in the company...of other patrons. A friendly, relaxed atmosphere for you to unwind in which I found absolutely delightful.More

My husband and I visited this tea shop with my Mum and Auntie and were very pleasantly surprised. Rhonda the owner is very friendly and made us all feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The other three opted for home made apple tart...and I had home made coconut cake all of which were delicious. Tea was served in individual china teapots that rested in the china cup with saucer - all very cosy! As if that’s not enough there are also a few arts and crafts for sale so we bought 2 little sandwich trays - we will definitely be back.More
