Evrrything on the menu sounds so good. Was recommended veggie gumbo- no regrets. Reasonable pricing, really friendly and efficient staff and nice place to sit. Pretty busy but seemed to ve a good seat turnover rate. Do it.

Get grapevine several times a week for lunch. Staff are very friendly and food is so good. been going for years and ever once had a poor lunch. Sandwiches / toasties / chicken brocolli bake / curries / seafood chowder all brilliant. Daily specials that rotate are always very interesting, never bland.

We stumbled across this place by accident after a long, early bus ride from Dublin and a 4 hours visit to the Titanic Belfast. Sufficed to say we were very hungry! We both had steaming bowls of creamy chowder, packed full of seafood and served with hearty brown bread and butter. It was shear perfection! It was only £4 as... More

This is my favourite cafe in Belfast to get a quick lunch while I am working. It has a good selection of hot and tasty food and never disappoints. Up until recently I would have rated it 5 stars as it was excellent value for money, but there has been a recent price rise of around 10% and the value... More

This is hands down the best working lunch spot in Belfast. The food is made fresh daily, with a range of standard menu options that warrant the out-door-queue. The best additional is hot, wholesome the daily specials (soups, sandwiches, hot pots) always with a little twist for something special. The girls working in the restaurant are speedy, efficient and always... More

Beautiful food with quite a few Vegetarian options on the menu e.g. baguettes, toasties, soups, porridge, bagels, quesadillas, blackeyed pea and lentil gumbo. Today (3/11/16) I choose a daily special of spicy pinto-bean quesadilla with Swiss cheese, dressed side salad and coleslaw. The food was immense; fresh, filling, delicious and moreish. Service was brisk and cost excellent at circa £5... More

I cannot properly put into words my love for this place. I eat here at least twice a week, as a gluten free customer I am made to feel so comfortable the staff have even gone as far as calling the head chef to make sure a salsa was suitable for me! The value is amazing, the food is tasty... More
