I attended this cafe last Thursday morning with some friends seeking a cure (so of course I ordered the full fry) and my friend ordered poached eggs. The food was cooked to perfection, portion size was fantastic, free tea/coffee with the fry and the price very reasonable for its Lisburn Road location. I asked about the source of the sausages...

Popped in for lunch as we were in the area. Shared an excellent chicken liver pate starter. My Caesar salad was pretty good - bacon and chicken added but the croutons were oily and just tasted of oil. I took them out and they 'drained' oil. This bit needs improving. My other half had an excellent burger with blue cheese... More

Thank you for your feedback, we really appreciate your good ratings of our cafe despite your issue with the card surcharge. Different card service providers charge different amounts and like many small, independent businesses we find this cost difficult to absorb on small purchases. However, we are aware how this policy can seem to our customers and are currently in... More

Called in here for coffee with croissant/scone yesterday morning. Excellent cafetiere coffee, full-flavoured but not bitter. Fresh and tasty food, warmed up to order. The service was quick and efficient, but there was no sense of being rushed to finish. There was a selection of books and magazines to read if wanted. A very pleasant cafe.
