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

Complete with a pot of tea & soda... More
