Dittys Home Bakery & Cafe at Castledawson
Monday to Saturday: 08:00 - 18:00
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.
