I've here a few a few times now foods always been good, staff lovely and one of those places where you can get something that doesn't cost you a small fortune. Recommend if your in your europa waiting around, great for a quick bite !

Surly unpleasant staff but food OK. Must have been an off day for them. No clear queue so sent to one end of counter by staff then once ordered sent to the other end by other staff and promptly forgotten about. Oh well.

Great food at a very reasonable price ... Would 100% recommend .. Just inside the Europa Bus Station ... Better than the so called established eateries. Call every day but call on a Sunday before 10am as other places are closed.

Dropped in here early afternoon (after the lunch time take away rush) for some quick snacks. The large Belfast Breakfast (£5.80) is excellent value for money. Others ordered the small breakfast, soda farl with sausage and pancakes with syrup. All washed down with tea, coffee and OJ. All for under£18! Excellent value. Well worth finding, close to the bus station.

Platform Food seems to be a cross between a chip shop, sandwich bar and cafe. Atmosphere is dim and drab. The strong red decor doesn't work in such a small eatery which gets no natural light as it's located inside Great Northern Mall. Service was poor. The staff didn't bother to give me cutlery or a napkin when they left... More

We stayed at a hotel near by and had breakfast here everyday. The staff were great, food was fresh hot and plentiful. The value was excellent and much better than paying a fortune to eat at the hotel! We will be back when next in Belfast.

The food here is always lovely, nice sandwiches especially. The staff are friendly too. Would definitely recommend. Nicest place to eat within the bus station.

I came here three times during a long weekend in Belfast, twice for breakfast and once for lunch. It's a friendly little place that does good-quality food. Prices are average for a city cafe, about what you'd expect (£2 for a nicely made bagel). I like supporting independent local businesses like this rather than the big international chains wherever possible.... More
