I was on a course at Queen's and had limited time for lunch. Two of us went and we got quick service and good food. I had breaded mushrooms and salad and my friend had a toasted sandwich with chips. Good quick service and tasty food. A cup of tea each finished us off and we were in and out... More

The accompanying wraps has be over heated, which therefor made them hard to eat. I requested cold wraps and two new wraps were brought out to... More

Visited a few times now and it is painfully average. Reasonably priced but food is extremely bland and definitely not cooked fresh. Chips taste hollow. Could make the food yourself at home and it would probably be nicer. Lots of nicer places in botanic/ lisburn road area

If you want a friendly place to sit with a fine piece of apple or banoffee pie, this wee cafe is fantastic. If you are looking for something a little more substantial in terms of a main course, then the food is not quite as good. Decent chips and mushy peas with the fish, but the fish itself was overcooked;... More

Came here as a group of five, but the tables were so small that one of us had to sit separate.. the food was below par, we had two teas which were served in dirty mugs which had literally only just been rinsed. service was all very smiley, but it didn't make up for the fact that the breakfast we...
