Lovely place for breakfast

Good service, good food at decent prices. 4.5 would be a better rating! Loses half a mark just as it needs a bit of a lick of paint and tidy up in places. Love the booth seating.

We visited Maggie Mays Cafe on Malone Road on Thursday 20th August. We were seated immediately and given menus. The menu offers good home style food at very reasonable prices. The menu is extensive and offers something to suit all tastes and appetites. There was a good choice of vegetarian dishes which was welcomed by my daughter. Our order was... More

Overpriced and undercooked irish fry breakfast. Not that different from Full English or Scottish breakfast. No black pudding. Cake was nice though. Bathroom had some interesting wallpaper!

We visited the Stranmillis Maggie May's on a Saturday evening. The actual building it's in is an older building, 'Abbotsford', which is full of character and all sorts of interesting original features. However, we found accessing the cafe for the first time was slightly confusing, due to it being a multi-use building. As you enter through the front door, you... More

We visited this cafe for an evening meal and breakfast. The decor is simple but effective. The staff were efficient and friendly. We need to return to try one of the milkshakes.

On Sunday 16th August myself and my family went for a late lunch. We sat at a table outside. After ordering our food and drinks our bill was given to us before our food arrived. This was ok I suppose but at this point we had not decided if we were to order a desert. The thing that got me... More

Put it this way, I wouldn't let them feed my dog. Filthy hole with the rudest staff ever, especially the manager in the botanic one, size of her and all! If you want a milkshake go to utterly moo up stranmillis road.
