Hot chocolate, cake and a view - what more could you ask for?! Not a huge place but seats outside and in, and staff were friendly.

We are 'frequent fliers' at this delightful place. It is a family-run enterprise and there's always a warm welcome. Its situation commands the best sea-view in town and the food and service are first class. This place is small so, if the weather is good,...More

For Mum’s 80th, my sister and I took Mum for a trip up the Antrim Coast to Portrush (full of happy memories for us) and popped in at the Shorebird. I ordered the food/tea and asked if they could put ‘80’ candle, that I had,...More
