Very disappointed - first with the poor quality cakes - gave feedback politely and was advised the comment would be passed to the chef. Offered reason as - cakes in fridge get dried up - bit of an understatement. As a baker myself - only cakes with fresh cream need to be stored in a fridge. This was a Tuesday,... More

Sorry but not a great performance from front of house or back. At least 4 floor staff on, but I stood waiting to be seated for a couple of minutes, even though the place was quiet. Then I was given a lunch menu at 11am? I ordered a coffee and pancakes with bacon & maple syrup...3 small pancakes with 2... More

Had a lovely light lunch here last week. I had a delicious chicken and apricot terrine with salad for £9 but there was so much salad and the terrine portion was so big my daughter and I shared it and it was more than enough for 2 . It was all so tasty and well presented. Only problem is that... More

This is a really nice place. I've been twice for lunch and it's been really good both times. Very central and nice staff and a lovely shop downstairs.

My girlfriend and I stumbled across this amazing little cafe during our trip to Belfast. Mooching along the high street, looking for scarves and hats, we ducked into Avoca for a quick look before heading off for lunch. At the back of the shop a large staircase led up to this beautiful little cafe. The food was excellent, the coffee... More

The restaurant is really named "Avoca Arthur St Café" and is upstairs in the Avoca store. I enjoyed my meal here so much last time that I was in Belfast that I had to visit again. I had breakfast and lunch there today and was pleased both times. As a Coeliac, I need to be very careful and I have... More

Really enjoyed the Arthur Street Cafe for lunch. It was very busy but the staff were helpful, prompt and friendly. We had the duck parfait it was excellent and a good sized portion for lunch. I saw other meals and they looked well presented and wholesome. A pleasant atmosphere and we will be back soon.

Went here on a mid Saturday morning - good and healthy as well as traditional breakfast menu - the blueberry pancakes were lush, and the coffee was one of the best in Belfast.
