The Orchard serves a range of lovely breakfast dishes, which are great value for money. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. The location of the Orchard is fantastic for those working around the Queen's Quarter. Highly recommend the Orchard for a morning 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.
