We come here every time we visit Norn Iron. Best cherry scones in the world. The coffee is terrific as well.

I can't fault the decor or food and coffee but the tiny 5 piece fry my mum was set down in front of her was grossly overpriced.

Thank you for your review. Please call in. I would be happy to meet you and discuss where, in Belfast, you can get a 5-piece fry, made freshly to order, in nice surroundings, including a tea or coffee for less than £5.

Fabulous cafetière of coffee, think it was Cuba...so strong and powerful I had second helping! The coffee shop caters for all ages yet you still have privacy with a great choice of seating. The scones are excellent...can recommend the cherry or fruit.
