A lovely place to call in for coffee, homemade cakes and tasty food. The decor is warm and inviting and the staff friendly. We tried the homemade carrot and coriander soup with wheaten bread that was literally just out of the oven and cooled! FAB!
A large slice of lemon drizzle cake and a lovely brownie went down well with our cappuccinos. Service was friendly despite the large lunchtime crowd and no rush out. Will be back!

Having been quite a few times I have usually come away with a bad experience in terms of service. Firstly there does not seem to be any system in place if you want to sit in and and ice cream - you are left standing whilst those who are having an ice cream 'to go' are served and once they're ALL served, someone will come and ask 'is someone seeing to you?' - hello!!!!! Not unless it's the invisible man! I always struggle with the fact that they do lot cover the traybakes, Cakes and pastries and the flies etc can land on the food..
Perhaps this is why the hygiene rating isn't great!? When we were in this time, the manager/owner (we think) was too busy chatting outside on his phone to worry about customers!!! Dreadful. This place is busy and has so much potential but the standards need to improve, even the mugs are not as nice as they were (and smaller!) and it's a shame as Magherafelt needs somewhere like this but only for taking the kids to it, I would not choose to go here. Other places in the town offer better service and higher overall standards in my opinion.

this little hidden gem is a welcomed treat for busy shoppers and sports run parents in the magherafelt area. The lunches are delicious and the ice creams and cakes/buns are lovely. Coffee is the best in town highly recommend!!

On my visit it wasn't very busy so there was pretty much no excuse for the toliet to be in the state it was! Horrible to say the least. The coffee didn't look like coffee... More like tea, honestly do not know what they were thinking serving such low quality coffee. I asked for a crepe, and they refused saying it would mean they would have to turn on the machine and it wasn't busy enough to do that.... And would take to long to heat up... I've used one before, and they only take 1 min (if even) to hear up. Simply say you have ran out or something, it wouldn't sound as bad, so then I got a ice cream Sunday instead which On the up side.... Was good!...

Went here today for a light lunch, & had a lighter lunch than expected, ciabatta over toasted & dry, bland chicken, served with half a cappuccino! Lettuce & tomatoe was good tho lol child's potatoe pie with slight mince crumb was severely in edible, overall poor selection, poor quality, poor service, won't be returning!
