Really nice breakfast, great atmosphere and friendly staff. Would recommend to travellers, probably very busy during normal meal times.

Absolutely loved this place, and came here for brunch both days on our weekend trip to Belfast. Friendly staff and a huge range of breakfast/brunch foods, all at a good price. We enjoyed the Full Breakfast and the Salmon and Egg Bagels.

Went for Sunday brunch. Got the all day fry. Very average. One small egg. One small sausage (the ones you get 8 for a pound). One small hard bit of bacon. One small burnt pancake and best of all one button mushroom. Average coffee. Not great!!!!!

Came here on a Monday morning whilst visiting Belfast. It was really buzzing inside with a lively atmosphere. I had the all day fry which I have to say was excellent, a quality breakfast. My wife has to avoid gluten which is one of the reasons we looked this place up before our trip and the GF options were really... More

A brilliant little venue, with a beautiful interior and a lovely atmosphere. A really big menu for breakfast - anything you could want! GLUTEN FREE options available too, which were brilliant. Book in advance to avoid disappointment after 9:30am it got a lot busier.

I was visiting home from London and visited the Harlem cafe late morning/afternoon on 1 April. My breakfast was very good and the service was good by one of the male servers. I later asked for a glass of Pinot Grigio - which I received, when I asked for another a little later the waitress laughed (in a patronising manner)... More

I was part of a group of 60 that booked the whole venue for a celebration meal. It is a lovely quirky venue with something to look at in every direction, from their eclectic photographs and paintings, to display tables full of shells, and the olde worlde crockery. My meal as a vegetarian was a great tasting soup, with a... More

Harlem Cafe is an absolute delight to dine in. The decor is an elegant, eclectic mishmash - beautiful large tables, comfy chairs and wonderful art work. It is a very busy restaurant so is worth getting to for an early lunch before the rush. I've had lunch here numerous times but unfortunately have never been in the evening to sample... More

Fabulously quirky restaurant in the centre of Belfast, on the site of the much lamented Larry's Diner for those of us if a certain age! Excellently tasty coffee and other beverages in the most comfortable of surroundings. Friendly staff who can't do enough for the customers. Yummy!
