Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The best curry I had on my 2 1/2 week trip to Great Britan. The staff is wonderful. Can not say enough nice things about our experience. Tom from Saratoga Springs, NY

After a 4 minute walk we stumbled across this place and I’m so glad we did. The breakfast hit the spot. It was so filling, I struggled to eat but because it was so nice I didn’t want to leave any. The 2 ladies there...were so friendly, ensured we had everything we wanted an needed. The food was very tasty and cooked eggs to perfection.More

Great little cafe run by two lovely ladies..Great service, great breakfast and all at a great price...did I mention how great this place is? If you are staying at Ibis I recommend skipping the breakfast there and crossing the road to Cafe Red.

We had breakfast every morning here during our 4 day trip to Belfast and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff are really friendly. We had the full fry up which was really tasty and a big plateful and also the porridge with fresh berries and honey...which was yummy. Give this cafe a visit if you are in Belfast you will be made very welcome.More

The best food we had the whole trip. We would definitely go back again. If this was the first place we’ve had eaten at the first day of our trip, we would’ve gone everyday for breakfast! The people working there were so friendly and helpful...with any questions about the menu. The portions were great and the food was so fresh. It is a must stop for breakfast. Full with locals so you know it must be good. They might not have the same hype of some of the nearby places but they are by far the best.More

Kerry and her staff were amazing. I stayed at the Ibis hotel nearby which was going through renovation at the time so they didn't have a restaurant and recommended to go to cafe red for breakfast. The food and drinks were of high quality, prices...are fair and service is fast. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and there is a nice and cosy atmosphere inside. The place opens at 8am and on one day I had a tour booked for the early morning so Kerry suggested she will come 30 minutes earlier on that day and open up just for me so I could have my breakfast and coffee before the tour and she did come right on the time we agreed on. I travel a lot and I've been to 51 countries and it's not every day you meet people which are so nice and friendly and make your experience in a place unforgettable and Kerry was definitely doing it. Needles to say Kerry was also suggesting things for me to see and do in Belfast while I'm around. If you're ever in Belfast you must must must visit cafe red.More

Ordered a bap with egg and cheese and a couple of iced Americanos. The service was quick and courteous, the bap was incredibly fresh and the espresso was quality. Top-notch morning takeaway.
