We went to have some quick food close to where we were staying and we were really happy to find such a great place with tasty food. Menu a bit too big, made it hard to choose but it's really popular with the locals and the uni students in the area. Regret not trying one of the yummy looking shakes,... More

Ive heard a lot of students rave about this place but was highly disappointed when i went. Food is very greasy and pretty basic. Very Belfast and uncultured. Good for a hangover meal I guess but not much else Also very cheap

Brilliant food in a bohemian Belfast cafe - I love this place. Wholesome and hearty meals at budget prices and friendly service. It's one of those places where you immediately feel like a regular. Always my first stop in Belfast.

As I'd heard a lot of people speaking highly of this place, I decided to pop in a few weeks back, as I was passing [Botanic Ave Branch]. I was full of students, but sure there's nothing wrong with that. Actually, that's a good sign, as they want value for money. I got a fry-up, and it was as good... More

Maggie Mays is the ultimate Belfast destination for a hungover reveller. The breakfast menu is vast and the portions are huge and hearty. Any dish needs to accompanied by one of their milkshakes, the range of flavours covers a whole host of retro chocolate parts (curly wurly, toffee crisp, milky way) and they're served in steins!

Maggie Mays is great for simple and affordable food. Do the best fry up about the place with great home made proper chips not frozen ones. Always busy, good staff quick service! Love it

Maggie Mays is always busy. There's a nice buzz and a mix of locals, students and tourists. The food is of the pub-grub kind: burgers, lasagne,... You wouldn't expect first class food here and this isn't their aim: it is good value and very decent food! Ideal for a quick lunch or dinner, less for special occasions. Some of the... More

This was our first visit here as a family and didn't disappoint. It is always busy, which augers well for a cafe/restaurant in our opinion. A bit cramped on space but good, lively atmosphere. Basic good food, at a reasonable price. Our bill for 2 fry-ups, one sandwich and pancakes with maple syrup, one dessert and drinks for everyone was... More

Maggie May's has a reputation as a Belfast institution (I think one of the prior reviewers actually uses that very title) and is well beloved by students in particular for huge fries after a night out. I can attest that the fry is delicious, fairly decent value, and the coffee is excellent. I'd come here again, hungover or otherwise.
