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.

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.

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.

I had my first proper Irish breakfast here and i thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was substantial and overall quite healthy and organic. The menu was nice and with a lot of options. I liked the store as well where it was located in. Most of the products are hand made, and natural. Overall pleasant, charming and nice.

Manager is great with adults and kids. I take 2 young kids by myself for breakfast and they do everything they can to bl make our visit stress free. (Colouring in books) food always amazing and I can't praise it enough. Always spend a small fortune when I go!

Not only can you get lovely food here you can also browse through the attached shop which has loads of quirky items. The apple tart is really good and worth having.
