Mini Fry

I've been going to the Orchard weekly for over a year now. The mini-fry with tea or coffee at £3.50 is a great deal. Staff always pleasant and service always good.

Set at the bottom of the Malone Road in a lofty Victorian buildings, complete with decorative plasterwork cornices, this cafe is only a few minutes walk from Botanic Gardens and the main Lanyon Building at Queen's. The comprehensive menu is reasonably priced. My vegetarian fry included tea or coffee and was priced at £4.50. The servings are generous. All staff... More

Enjoyed the food, the staff was very attentive and the prices are very competitive. They make the sandwiches to order so they made exactly as I wanted (even added an ingredient that wasn't listed when I asked). Would recommend this place for a casual bite to eat or a cup of coffee while supporting an inclusive business.

I was absolutely delighted with the Orchard Cafe. The friendly manager was very helpful and the lunch-time menu provided great choices. Service was spot-on and the food was excellent. I strongly support the ethos of this restaurant but believe me it can hold its head up high in terms of quality. Great food...excellent value...sorry we didn't have time (or room!)... More

It's not the quality of the food that makes this place great, although it is really good. It's not the price, although it is really reasonable. It wasn't the décor although it was fine and the music was much better than the usual café dross. It wasn't even the folk I was with although they're pretty impressive. It's that this... More
