The scones were so delicious And the coffers were lush No wonder we just wanted to sit and not rush The clocks on the wall Added to the ambience of cafe hall

This has to rate as being the best breakfast in Belfast, great choice of hot cooked items and cakes from the counter. We opted for the Porridge and fruit which was delicious along with freshly baked fruit scones. The scones are available to buy downstairs as well, staff were extremely friendly and a very central location in Belfast worth a... More

Walked past this place on a recent visit to Belfast and loved the look of the food so decided to pop in on our last day for breakfast. Was really looking forward to my poached eggs with avocado and smoked salmon but when it arrived at the table I was disappointed to see my poached eggs were hard. In my... More

When out shopping, Avoca is a favourite spot to stop at for morning coffee. The scones are delicious and are served with a generous portion of butter and jam. Staff are very friendly and are always more than happy to give you a top up of hot water for your tea. Prices are slightly higher in comparison to other cafes,... More

This was my last day in Belfast and this was the ideal place for lunch. It is quite quirky and trendy as the food is based on healthy choices and in my opinion quite Mediterranean. Probably slightly over priced but the food was delicious.

The food here is really interesting. However, it really is too expensive to be considered good value and if I wanted an expensive meal I would go to a proper restaurant rather than an in-store eating place. I had to ask a member of staff at the serving counter to wipe down my table which was littered with the previous... More

Whenever I am near Avoca I have to walk in and order their scone. The one I had in their Belfast location did not disappoint. The waitress was very welcoming and amicable.
