Fresh-cooked food, lovely atmosphere. Had breakfast here on two occasions and each time was cooked to perfection.

This bakery is delightful, I love going in here and the only problem is choosing which cake to have! There is no other bakery about with the selection this shop has and I love going in for the odd treat or too.

All freshly made food. Very good value and very tasty. Got to be the cheapest tea and scone around deal. The smell of fresh bread is lovely.

Stopped here for a lovely cup of coffee and croissant. Bright and modern cafe with friendly staff. I also bought wheaten bread, flavoured Irish oatcakes and the best coffee and walnut cake ever

called in to Castledawson for a quick bite and found Ditty's Homebakery/Restaurant we had a pleasant experience to see a wide range of food and great staff to help us and attend to us soup and scones were very good and also the selection of eats that were on sale a worthwhile place to call and enjoy.

With no shortage of coffee stops dotted around NI it is nice to enjoy a family owned business. The coffee is excellent and what a choice in pastries. Plenty of space to sit and relax at the back of the shop front and very friendly staff. Well worth a visit.

Ditty's has earned itself an enviable reputation both as a bakery and as a lunch/afternoon tea venue. Prices are very reasonable and the quality of food is faultless. Get there early for the full range of food on offer as they do tend to run out of some things later in the day. Good staff and great food. Enjoy.

I would often call at Ditty's when passing through Castledawson village for a cup of tea and a sandwich. Your choice of sandwich is made to order using their own fresh bread that is baked on the premises and usually finish off with one of their home baked delights.

Called for lunch recently with my mother and husband on route to country down. Both my mother and I had the vegetable soup with wheaten bread which was delicious. My husband had a cheese and salad roll which also was delicious. On this occasion we did not have any of their pastries but they are delicious as we have had... More

Called in for a salad and got a few spoonfuls of lettuce and asked if I wanted tomatoes. Portions tiny and was given two thin tiny Skinny chicken goujons. Found the portion stingy and salad very bland.
