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.

But don’t be fooled by his cool exterior. The humbleness of his gentle personality belies a chef with a will of iron, who really knows what he wants in his kitchen.
