Each time that I'm in Ballymena I make a point of visiting Classic Cuisine. It's usually for coffee and a light snack, but sometimes for lunch. Classic Cuisine has always been very good, with delicious home made tray-bakes, hot lunch dishes and great desserts. Staff are consistently pleasant and helpful. A great place to chill out and relax with a... More

Love this wee cafe and try my best to get in whenever I'm home. Have enjoyed their Cajun chicken paninis and bacon and cheese bites etc for years! Some people might complain of menus not changing much but that's what brings me back (along with the taste). Desserts usually do vary which is nice to try something new. Always friendly... More

Popped in here recently for a quick bite while shopping and the food was delicious. It's in such a handy location. Will definitely visit again for a proper lunch as the selection all looked fantastic.

I love this place, staff are very friendly and efficient, food is always fresh, home made and tastes great. Its a wee bit expensive though. I think they should do evening meals too :)

Food very much overpriced, quality of food disappointing I would describe it as a salty cheese mess, wouldn't recommend and will not use again. Friendly staff though. .

This is a family run restaurant that is spotlessly clean and has a fantastic vibe. Would really recommend to anyone and I've been bringing people here for years when they visit Ballymena. The best food in Ballymena as it is all home made and presented beautifully. Homemade soups and stews, gluten free meals, delicious traybakes & deserts. The BEST pavlova... More

I have ate in the cafe numerous times over the years. The food is evidently homemade and the ingredients are of great quality. The cafe has a wide range of foods to offer, and it is great for catering to different needs, even when I'm dieting I know I can have a delicious healthy lunch here! Staff are always very... More
