Description: Only a couple of minutes away from the centre of town, The Velvet Lobster is known for its stunning coffee quality, seasonal & hearty food, and a belief that we should buy as much good quality Manx produce as possible. With a cosmopolitan look, you do feel like you’re in the middle of a major city whether it be Paris, London or Manchester. This is the kind of place that’s perfectly suited to any occasion. A very tasty selection of hearty breakfast choices, a lunch menu that's suited to snacking or a full three course lunch that rolls all day and night accompanied by a great selection of wines, beers, spirits and cocktails made using the most perfect of ingredients. Then Saturday evenings is in an a la carte night with some classics, some new dishes & something quite exotic. Taste the difference, choose somewhere that sources lots of local produce, presented in an honest and hearty way.

I love the Velvet Lobster. Often pop in for breakfast at the weekends. The service is excellent and the quality of everything served is excellent too. Love popping in for a coffee in the evening. A good alternative to going to the pub.

I can highly recommend the Velvet Lobster for creating a continental coffee house serving good food in pleasant surroundings with a marvellous view of Douglas inner harbour. Suitable for a light snack or casual dinner early evening or a great brunch on a Sunday. If you are planning an evening meal it is worth reserving a table or popping in for a post work drink as they sell lovely wines and good beers.
