I thought it was only on Coronation Street that the locals went out for breakfast. I enjoyed their small fry for £3.50 and I was full all day. Not usually a fan of cooked breakfasts, I was surprised how much I enjoyed this. There are...More

We stopped here for brunch on a public holiday morning. The service was really good and the food was super quick to come out! Excellent value too- we each had a cooked brekky with a cuppa included for between £4-5 each. Very satisfied!

I've used this cafe for a number of years and usually been well pleased but on a recent visit the cafe was overwhelmed with people wanting to eat and very few staff in attendance. Have to say it was a pleasant Sunday morning with cyclists...More

Barbour Lights is located right on the small harbor in Carnlough and offers a decent place to get a cup of coffee (drip only, no espresso-based drinks), tea, or light meal. Nice view of the harbor, but diffident service the morning I visited.

This really is a cafe with a cafe style menu. In high season it gets very busy but in off season you should get a table.
