Delicious treat

Delicious breakfast in a very pleasant atmosphere! I had pancakes and "American" bacon with maple syrup and coffee. Our waitress was really friendly and chatted with us.

Had lunch here recently my husband had a delicious sandwich which was packed with filling and I had a mixed salad which was not your usual salad but a mixture of cous cous and was delicious. The sweet things on offer were gorgeous and we shared a cheesecake which was yummy. Looking forward to returning

We went here on the recommendation of a friend from Belfast. It is deceiving on the outside because it looks like a store selling beautiful wool throws, a bit of kitchenware & cookbooks and a variety of skincare products. But tucked upstears in the back is a wonderful little restaurant that was so good, we returned three times in our... More

Arrived to discuss placing an order for a party. There were two serving staff on and two customers in front of me. It was late afternoon so as expected it wasn't too busy. The customers in front were slow to select and make their minds up, but that was fine as there was still a good selection left to chose... More

This has been my second visit, and was just as good as the first. The food was so fresh with the perfect seasonal and local produce. The service was probably the best I've had in Belfast, unfortunately Belfast has gone downhill with regards service and variety in the cafe restaurant sector. Avoca is head and shoulders above its competitors and... More

I visit here regularly with friends/family. Absolutely adore the pear and almond scones which are served in the restaurant with jam and cream. Definitely the best scones in Northern Ireland let along Belfast! Have also been for lunch which is again of a very high standard. One of my favourite places to visit when on my lunch hour or shopping... More

6 of us from various places, Sydney, Birmingham, and Belfast decided to have lunch at Avoca, it was very busy the cafe part and the sit down lunch area. One can see why it is so popular the scones, etc that we had was excellent.

Called in today for coffee, scones, cakes and desserts are lovely! My sister and I opted for the lemon cheesecake which was delicious the desserts are quite big so we shared! Coffee was great too. A great place to chat and people watch. Avocado is a lovely store and a great addition to Belfast!!
