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's oatcakes are nationally and internationally famous - perfect with cheese. Seasonal baking is also a speciality here - Ditty's Christmas goods are sought after and award winning. Birthday and other special occasion cakes are made to order. Whatever your occasion and baking requirement may be - just ask. Staff are only too happy to discuss.
