Have ate here a number of times for breakfast. Have tried most things on the menu and I have been very impressed by everything, pancakes and eggs benedict are incredible. Excellent service and great prices. Highly recommended

We've walked past this cafe so many times but never ventured in (lots of coffee shops in holywood but most of them pretty average) - but what a pleasant surprise! Nice menu - good snacks & terrific cakes - delicious coffee & staff that are pleasant, attentive & efficient. Good value too. Highly recommended!

I would buy food out of Homebird quite regularly but I usually take the food to go as I have a real issue with the customer service. i find the staff quite rude and it is not a very pleasant experience. I think everything else about Homebird is great, the decor, is it very child friendly and a good atmosphere... More

Brilliant cafe. Stands out for wonderfully friendly staff, great food and lovely relaxed feel to the place. Free coffee refill makes it stand out in a town with an abundance of coffee shops! Its my favourite place to go for breakfast or lunch with a friend.

After my fiancée had her operation, her parents treated us to lunch at Homebird Cafe. I ordered a Sprite and the Smoked Salmon with Truffle Oil Scrambled Eggs with Gluten Free white bread. I have to say that it was excellent. I really enjoyed everything about the experience, so much so that we visited again after a few days! The... More

Just had drinks and scones here , the scones were lovely and pots of tea made with loose leaves , really enjoyed it . The staff that served us were very friendly and welcoming, if I lived in the area would want to visit here regularly, as the food menu also sounds very nice.

The staff are lovely and quick to serve and the cafe Is very clean. However I find the food a bit hit and miss. Mostly it's lovely but there have been a few times I have been disappointed. But it's a great place to meet up for a coffee.

As such a big hype about home birds breakfasts, we went down to try it out ourselves, a large breakfast for £7.95 consisted of no egg cooking style choice, nor toast choice just wheaten bread. When the fry arrived it wasn't much bigger than a McDonald's chip. We also ordered eggs benedict with bacon for £5.50 when it was set... More

Good food , good coffee , good staff and good value join together in making Homebird consistently the best spot in Holywood for their all day menu . The menu caters for all tastes and unlike others they know how to poach an egg . Great to see freshly orange juice available and top up filter coffee foc.
