“Great upmarket coffee shop with fab tasty food”
Reviewed 16 May 2013

Saturday afternoon, sun shining though the glass roof in the atrium, lovely open space (though its not a big area) and a really nice menu to suit everyone.
It's located inside a kitchen/homeware shop which makes it quirky. We all ordered different lunches and all of us enjoyed them. Their soups are highly recommended and nothing was a problem. It's waitress service which is lovely for a cafe instead of getting in line and fighting for a table. maybe a little bit more expensive than your other cafe's but worth the extra pound.

“Expensive!!”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

Considering how mean the portions are this place is very expensive!!

I paid almost £8 something for a sandwich and a small tray bake that was take-away.

Shame as set in nice part of Belfast and handy in lunch hour.

“Great warming soup on a freezing day”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

Popped in here for a wee snack when out and about. Lovely soup, coffee etc. Well worth dropping in for just a coffee or more, and a browse round the attached shop.

“Like it”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

This is a nice intimate place for a quiet lunch, staff are friendly and we were served quickly. Friendly atmosphere food was good. I have been here a few times and have not been disappointed, It is small so get here early for lunch. You wont be disappointed.
