We loved this place...shopping, food, toiletries, kitchenware, stationary, jewellery...ALL IN THE ONE PLACE! Really great food offering upstairs (pear scone is 10/10), really nice home made feel, and not too pricey.

I don't get the buzz that others do about the food in the restaurant. I do like the cafe as its open and airy and appears to be clean, but anything I have ever had to eat has been made with cheap ingredients and dress to look expensive. The coffee is not great and the hot chocolate is to be... More

The shop is full of gorgeous things - great for gifts or a treat for yourself. The cafe is well worth a visit. The food is tasty although I miss the daily pasta and chunky chips that used to be on the menu. I have had breakfast, coffee, lunch and afternoon tea there none of which have disappointed. Afternoon tea... More

Whilst visiting Belfast I researched Avoca as a potential vegan spot and wasn't disappointed at all. The staff were so helpful and friendly and checked different ingredients and amended accordingly to cater for my vegan diet. The brunch was so good we went back the following day! We would of gone on Sunday as well but unfortunately they don't serve... More

First time to Belfast and I was trying to kill some time before my flight and get a decent lunch - not fast food- downtown. Avoca was just amazing! Many veg options, not heavy cuisine and great tastes overall! My dish had a great balance and it has become one of my top experiences of vegetarian options. Restaurant has a... More

What a nice surprise this place was, hidden at the back of the store was a beautiful restaurant providing sumptuous food with a multitude of different wonderful combinations. I had the Chicken, pesto, asparagus and brie sandwich accompanied with tasty salads. Keep up the good works guys 👍👍👍

We wandered in to the Avoca shop and immediately got lost in all the delightful things they had on offer - clothes, food, homeware, jewellery... Then we ventured upstairs and had one of the most amazing breakfasts I think I have ever had. Simple, delicious, high quality food with fantastic service. We expressed our appreciation at the time but this... More

Met a friend for breakfast today. We throughly enjoyed it. Scrambled eggs with smoked salmon with toasted oaten. My chum had avocado and poached eggs. My son loved his scone with butter, jam and cream. Love the jug of water offered with mint leaves. Very refreshing.

We both had a latte and scone. Lattes were great and the scones extremely yummy 😋, generously sized, served hot with plenty of butter and jam. Relaxed and pleasant surroundings. Love this place!
