I'm sitting in this lovely place enjoying a mug of the best coffee ever and a delicious scone. As a frequent customer here, I have never been disappointed. Such a gorgeous coffee shop with great staff, lovely atmosphere and really tasty food. Open on Sundays...More

Comfortable, relaxing environment, friendly staff, great food, superb coffee (hot chocolate for the kids - see picture) and the best caramel square’s in the country. Can’t ask for much more from a coffee shop.

Met up with a friend for a coffee and a chat. Lovely spot - really cosy atmosphere with great friendly service. Traybakes were scrumpy too! 🍰 Will not be the last time I visit Browns.

We needed coffee and food, they had both and we loved it! The latte art was on point and the espresso was rich with flavor. We will remember and come back to this place for sure!

Delicious caramel squares, great coffee (including some of the best decaf to be had) and superb service. Couldn't recommend this little gem enough.

Excellent, lovely atmosphere great for a coffee/lunch on your own, with friends or with kids. Also great place to meet up with friends in the evening too. The reserved private area is a great idea - best coffee shop in Ballyclare.
