My husband and I eat here about once a week. We love it. There are several sandwich options, so we are never bored with it. The sandwiches are awesome. I always thought of this place as being pricey, but if you think about it, you're only paying a couple of extra dollars than you would for a Subway meal and... More

My daughter suggested Bell the Cat when we were looking for a place for lunch last week. That was a great suggestion! The food was great and the prices were reasonable. The atmosphere was OK, nothing special. You order your meal at the counter and find a seat. Pretty soon this wonderful, wonderful food appears. I had the Ruben. It... More

Gathered here for breakfast with other out of town family the morning after a wedding. Service was mediocre, but the food and coffee were excellent! We'd definitely return. Lots of seating options; small tables for couples, booths for parties of 4-6, and a large picnic style table for our party of 7 that would have accommodated 10-12. Great breakfast sandwiches... More

While visiting Belfast in the off season, we found many places closed, but we were quite pleased to find Bell the Cat. We had so many choices of sandwiches for lunch, along with 5 soup choices, smoothies, ice cream, coffee, etc., and we were both very happy with our choices of soup and a generous 1/2 sandwich. My husband said... More

Bell the Cat was very helpful with an unusual order. I live hundreds of miles away and when my friend's father died, I needed to find a place to prepare and deliver a lot of food to the family quickly. The very helpful team at Bell the Cat walked me through the high quality menu, took care of my order... More

I like the ability to choose different options for lunch. THis place is great for meeting a friend for lunch and being in a warm environment. There are many options to choose from and you can make your own selections or try something that they create. Love the atmosphere and the ambience.

BELL THE CAT is the kind of restaurant and all around hang out with friends kind of place that every town needs. The large stuffed brown sofa and bean bag chairs make it a fun place where family's can go with kids. The bathroom are clean and the most enjoyable aspect about the place is that it is large enough... More

Stopped here on eve of Thanksgiving before getting up to our cabin which due to bad weather took us a lot longer and we were starving. We got here 15 mins before closing, everything was put away so we thought we would get an attitude because it was basically done for the night. We couldn't have been more wrong, staff... More

Great, creative sandwiches and soups. Yummy cookies and treats. Good prices, free wifi, lots of space to hang out. I stopped by for lunch and ordered a half sandwich and cup of soup. I think the total was about $7. The half panini was huge! And the roasted veggie soup hit the spot on a cold day. Plus it came... More
