It's may be not the sort of place you would expect to find a gem. Not quite city centre, first appearance would give you the impression it was just another cafe with standard fare and average tea and coffee. But go inside and you will be greeted by friendly staff, a lively atmosphere and food that is generous in portions,... More

I had a panini with chilli beef, GARLIC MUSHROOMS, roasted peppers, cheese and rocket and it was amazing. I understand why this place is flat out at lunch time. The staff are very efficient and I want to try about 20 more things on the menu. Haven't seen anywhere else do combinations as interesting as this. Great value too.

I have been a customer here for years and always go back. Yes it's that good. These are simply the best sandwiches in Belfast if not Northern Ireland, I certainly have never tasted better. Really fresh bread and a staggering array of filling all freshly made on site. Really nice place really busy at lunch time but still quick a... More

Two guys that own it... More

The sandwiches and wraps are unreal at west but I also love the unsung hero - the salads. The superfood salad is beautiful and unfinishably big. A new word coined just for the occasion. My mother had the jerk chicken salad, and it was also great and massive. There's also a gorgeous prawn one. Excellent staff and excellent value. An... More

Every time I go into town I eat at West and have never had bad service or food there. I have family and friends who say to me, "Where was that lovely little place you took us?" And then they bring people to lunch there. I have brought friends and family from all over the world to West and will... More

First time had a toasted sandwich, second time had the prawn salad. This place is small, but they do a big take away business. Everybody loves this place I wish they had them back home in Mpls Mn

I was in the newly opened Duncairn branch of West and ordered the feta cheese, sun blushed tomatoes, cous cous, olives, croutons, red onion, pesto sandwich to take back to my office. Unfortunately the feta cheese was left out of the sandwich and there was very little, possibly no, pesto in the sandwich. Not complaining, just wanted to make you... More
