And the best thing is definitely the tea - they serve it in iron pots which is a lovely touch, and you can... read more

Back to Belfast for Christmas and met some friends for lunch in Cafe Smart. It didn't disappoint. The festive panini was really delicious - as was the rather large selection of traybakes and buns we ashamedly ordered to the table! We sat for hours. There is just such a nice atmosphere and great staff. It really is a great spot... More

This time brought 'arty' friends on a trip from the USA who wanted a true 'Taste of Ulster'. They weren't disappointed with what they discovered, both on their plates and displayed on the walls! Maybe the opening of Cafe Smart Cincinnati isn't far off!!

A wonderful cafe, lovely staff, trendy environment, beautiful food, and snacks and exceptional tea served in cast iron tea pots. Love going here with friends or family and at night turns in to a piano Bistro. Well worth a visit
