I have visited cafe smart lots of times for breakfast, lunch and coffee. The food and service is generally really good. Tonight I was just there for coffee. Overall I find the lunch options slightly overpriced compared to other cafés in the area however they are good quality and so I normally don't mind paying this. Tonight however I was... More

I went here in November for a friend's birthday lunch and don't have a bad word to say. Service was friendly and fast for a busy saturday morn! We had 'brunch' and it was absolutely lovely. And the best thing is definitely the tea - they serve it in iron pots which is a lovely touch, and you can buy... 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.
