Milkshake!

This place has good vegetarian options and a good vibe about it. Along with doing yummy milkshakes in virtually any flavour you can think of!

I had the all day breakfast here for dinner - the full fry! It was delicious and very affordable! It was my first time eating soda bread and I wasn't disappointed. I didn't have a milkshake but it's honestly the biggest milkshake menu I've ever seen!

Horrible service and food was awful. Staff were rude, no service check and when I went to pay my bill I complained. I was then faced with the girl rolling her eyes and still charging me full amount which I was not wanting to pay. Chefs need serious training if they can't cook a simple taco chip correctly.

I have ate here about 5 times and have never gotten a smile off a waitress, very unfriendly staff. They don' ask about drinks.. being hungover and thirsty and having to wait 15 minutes just for a waitress to come near you again to then take your food and drink order together and return 10 minutes later.. not good. Never... More

We were told to try the traditional Ulster Fry and it exceeded expectations! The service was quick and the atmosphere was lovely. Plus it was right across the street from the very interesting Ulster Museum. Definitely worth your time!
