Dittys Shop Magherafelt Good Food Ireland

Dittys Home Bakery & Coffee Shop at Magherafelt

Ditty's bakery is well known in this area. The shop and coffee shop at Magherafelt is a second business to the original in Castledawson, bought by Robert's father in 1963. Robert opened this second premises in 1985 - at the height of Northern Ireland's troubles. As he notes himself, it was a gamble at the time, but one that has most certainly paid off. This shop is always bustling and busy. Not surprising when the variety of cakes and buns is delectable. Browse the Eccles cakes, muffins, cream pastries, meringues, iced buns, vanilla slices, apple tart, and doughnuts - the list is practically endless. See them displayed on the counter and be strong enough to resist buying some!

Ditty is a famous name in Castledawson. A bakery was started here in 1963 by a master baker of the same name. Now it's in son Robert's hands - and Robert Ditty is famous in his own right. The skills and expertise of this second generation baker are carrying on the family tradition. Robert learned his trade beside his father, then took over the business after his father's death in the 1980's. Enthusiasm and passion soon followed his original reluctancy.

Our Review of Dittys Home Bakery & Coffee Shop

Magherafelt is the second home of Ditty's bakery. This business was opened in the 1980's by Robert Ditty, at a time when Northern Ireland's troubles were at their height. He took a gamble, which paid off. Today the food shop and coffee shop here are busy little hives of activity. Both feed off the bakery - which was the original business of the Ditty family.

Robert is a second generation baker who brings a wealth of skill and expertise to the craft. He worked alongside his father as a youngster, and took over the business after his father's death in the 1980's. Since then, he has honed and developed an array of baked goods - everything from his famous oatcakes in a variety of flavours, to shortbread biscuits spiced or flavoured with fruit, and of course the buns, tarts, cakes and breads the bakery was always famous for.
