We are staying not far from the cafe. On our first day we dropped in not long before closing time. So not everything was still available. But that small setback was in no way taking away from a very pleasant lunch. We were asked to write down our order, to make it easier for the staff to help us. Worked... More

On my first visit to Belfast, my partner wanted me to have a real Irish Fry up Breakfast. We tried a cafe in the city which was quite pretentious and a disappointment. We then found The Orchard Cafe, not far from our hotel in the Student Quarter, and what a find. For size, quality and value for money this must... More

We decided to try this cafe following a recommendation from our daughter. It is a small cafe but bright and nicely decorated. We were shown to our table and given a menu. The cafe is run to provide work experience for people with learning difficulties. We duly ordered our food and drinks and had only a short wait until they... More

The Orchard serves a range of lovely breakfast dishes, which are great value for money. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. The location of the Orchard is fantastic for those working around the Queen's Quarter. Highly recommend the Orchard for a morning fry!

I've been going to the Orchard weekly for over a year now. The mini-fry with tea or coffee at £3.50 is a great deal. Staff always pleasant and service always good.

Set at the bottom of the Malone Road in a lofty Victorian buildings, complete with decorative plasterwork cornices, this cafe is only a few minutes walk from Botanic Gardens and the main Lanyon Building at Queen's. The comprehensive menu is reasonably priced. My vegetarian fry included tea or coffee and was priced at £4.50. The servings are generous. All staff... More
