Food at creative gardens

We are mad about food at Creative Gardens!  We love nothing more than home cooked, hearty meals, delicious and huge desserts as well as yummy cakes and tray bakes.

ur Cafes

Our talented chefs and bakers make everything from scratch each day ensuring freshness and quality. We use only the finest ingredients; you won't find chocolate topping in our kitchens, only the best Belgian chocolate is used. 

We serve breakfast, lunch, and all of your favourite scones, desserts and traybakes in our cafes.

Please note: since re-opening, our lunch menu has had some changes.  We will no longer be serving hot food from the counter, instead bringing some of your favourite dishes (and some new additions!) straight from our kitchen to your table.

We have been working hard to insure a safe environment for our customers and staff. We have provided hand sanitiser at entry, checkout and exit and all of our tables are now very well spaced, with outdoor patio seating areas at all 3 centres. We also have covered outdoor seating areas at our Bushmills and Donaghadee centers suitable for all weather. Staff bringing food to your table will be wearing visors.

We accept any payment but contactless payment is preferred.
