A treat!

This place is definitely a treat coffee stop after a busy morning in town! I really love the berry scones and the salads are delish! Sometimes I think their coffee mugs could be a bit bigger though... But I'm a fan of bucket mugs :)

The cafe and bistro in Belfast's Avoca store provide delightful snacks and light meals at lunchtime with interesting and well-presented flavour combinations. This is a must-do when visiting Belfast!

My wife and I often stop here for lunch when in a shopping trip to Belfast. We were escorted to our table by the lovely Orlagh who brought us a jug of water flavoured with fresh mint and cucumber. I also had a glass of Pinot Grigio which was very pleasant. For lunch my wife had the pasta of the... More

This is the place to go for breakfast in Belfast, Whilst being easy reach in the city centre this place has plenty to offer. Friendly staff and excellent atmosphere in which to dine this restaurant has it all. Opted for the full irish breakfast which was outstanding flavoursome, filling & honestly priced. Complete with a pot of tea & soda... More

Whilst it all looks attractive when looking at the food, the selection is limited to wraps and dishes that are over saturated with cheese. Food for young children is practically non existent. The soup was far too spicy for my child to eat and she had to make do with wheaten bread. The salads are tasty but my chicken and... More

On a visit to Belfast decided to have lunch here as had visited it couple of times before. We went to the self-service section for food. I cannot put my finger on it but the service is terrible. There was a customer ahead who appeared to be ordering for his family and we were left standing for at least 15... More
