You're guaranteed a nice lunch if you visit Café Smart, with a decent menu and some great lunchtime offers. It is well worth a visit but be wary that it isn't the largest place so you may have to wait for a seat. Furthermore parking can be tricky so use the side streets nearby if you're stuck.

Called into Cafe Smart for lunch on a Saturday. I had never been here before. It was quite busy but a table became available very quickly. The menu is good with plenty of choice. There is a lovely atmosphere with low volume music giving some background. We had chicken gougons and chips with sweet chilli sauce for £6.50. The food... More

Got takeaway coffee and cakes. Hot chocolate also great for kids as it comes with marshmallows and flake

There are (at last count) 6 cafes in a 400m stretch of the belmont road - this one is the 5th best (!) Does nothing bad, but the menu is limited & service just ok. Unfortunately the competition all beat it in most areas. Go if the others are crowded.
