Since 1988, The Bay Tree has been attracting customers from miles around to its delightful restaurant and coffee house on the main street in Holywood.
Baking is a strength, especially the cinnamon scones which are a house speciality, and there's quite a strong emphasis on vegetarian dishes and organic salads, especially in summer, when you can also eat out on a patio in fine weather. No reservations for lunch, but they are required on busy evenings.
*Sue Farmer has published a book of Bay Tree Recipes, available directly from the restaurant.
Every morning, owner Sue Farmer bakes dozens of her famous Cinnamon Scones for the Bay Tree Coffee House - now you can buy them (and many other good things, including her cookbooks) at her shop, Go!, beside the café.
