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.

This is a delightful cafe that serves both locals and tourists. Good honest to goodness food. Toasties, Breakfast baps, pastries, etc... and very often a queue for seating. Well done to all the hard working serving staff.

While driving along the coast road, we stopped in Cushendall for coffee and cake. Went to this cafe. Staff very friendly, cafe clean, tidy, light and airy. Service and food was great. When we go back would go again without doubt.

Visited with my partner and son for breakfast included with our stay in a local B&B. We all agreed it was one of the best breakfasts we have ever had. My filled soda bread was amazing, all perfectly cooked. Pancakes, bacon and maple syrup for...my son which he loved, washed down with a strawberry milkshake. And my partner highly recommends the coffee! Staff were attentive, friendly and nothing was too much trouble.More

I have started using this café regularly on motorcycle runs up the Antrim coast. It has become my go to cafe as it does a superb breakfast/brunch. In addition the staff are friendly and helpful. Some posters here have complained that there is no vegetarian/vegan...options. I have friends who are vegan and they will accept that not every eatery can accommodate an occasional vegetarian/vegan request. Keep doing what you are doing! I will keep coming back when I can!!!More

Called in here for breakfast while passing through Cushendall, staff were friendly and took our order quickly. Fry’s were lovely, good portions and reasonably priced. We realised at the end the sausage and tomato were missing from one fry but didn’t mention this to staff...as at this stage it didn’t matter. However, I’m sure this would have been easily rectified if we had brought this to their attention. The cafe is clean and tidy with toilets available for customer use. Would call again if I’m in the area.More

I had a really uncomfortable experience here today I've never came across an establishment with staff as rude, when ordering an egg white one of the waitresses asked if it could be done, I then I got a nasty response of one of the staff...'well you can tell her yourself' and looked into the cook I felt so embarrassed and uncomfortable I just grabbed my stuff and left. It seems if you aren't local you'll be made to feel unwelcomed, won't be back.More

Fine as long as you're not either vegan or vegetarian. No efforts made to accommodate if you are and absolutely no alternatives to the fry for breakfast. We were informed by staff that all food was fried in the same fat rendering the mushroom, tomatoes...and other potentially vegan options inedible to my niece. Having paid for full breakfasts at McNaughtons, she was given dry toast and a ramekin of baked beans! The full fry was adequate but by far the most begrudging I've ever seen with 1/2 portions or smaller items served up. Avoid the black pudding at all costs.More

The breakfast spots in Ireland seemed to open later, so my appetite was in craving mode; Cafe Cava did not fail me. The breakfast sandwich with egg, bacon, and sausage was terrific...I could have eaten three but only had one because my doctor would have...had an issue. ;-)More
