popped in for coffee, decided on snack , selected home made fishcake which seemed more like a main course, deliciously served with salad, home backing looked very good, we settled on fruit scone which was much enjoyed, will call again when next in area.

I can't say anything about the food as we only popped in for a coffee and the latte was seriously good ,in my opinion better than the professional coffee shops. I did order a second as the atmosphere was great and the lady serving us was very pleasant

Stopped for an afternoon tea and coffee. Very nicely surprised. The venue is small but with such a charm. Baking is extraordinary, we had fruit scones and they were delicious. Working hours in winter look a bit shorter. Staff, I guess the owners, are very friendly and make you very welcome in this tiny establishment.

Whilst in Portpatrick my wife and friends visited The Port Pantry for a bite to eat. Lots of choice on the menu with a wide variety of cakes for dessert. Reasonably priced and well worth a visit.

A true gem - a brave life change for the friendly new owners who really deserve success. The cakes are fabulous. If you can catch a table at the weekend evening opening don't miss it - great chef, unpretentious service and delicious food. Can't take your dog in the evening but he will be made very welcome in the day... More

We can't go more than 30 mins without a coffee, we tried most of the places around and this has the best in Port Patrick. Well with a try.
