My daughter and I lunched here on Thursday whilst in Belfast for the day. It was beautifully decorated inside, nice to see a modern, contemporary place that's not shabby, retro chic. The menu was really inspiring, very reasonable and our meals were delicious. The staff were friendly and efficient, the food came quickly and we would definitely come again. No... More

The morning after the night before and we needed something to reboot ourselves. The bloody Mary at Harlem café did the trick whilst we mulled over the Saturday papers and people watched in this busy café with a great, friendly vibe. Live music was setting up as we left.

We were in Belfast recently for a day out to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We decided to drop by Harlem for a bite to eat before going home. Their evening menu was on by the time we got there. I thought I'd chance my luck and ask if there was any chance they'd cook me some gluten free battered fish... More

My mum and I had a lovely Saturday breakfast at Harlem. We both ordered traditional Irish breakfasts and they were delicious! The staff were very accommodating as we asked to change one of the food items. The milk jugs were so quirky, they were cute cows and the teapots were vintage. We loved the interior and the unique atmosphere of... More

So happy we stumbled upon this charming cafe. Had a wonderful breakfast and coffee and pastries. Even the milk was tasty! Service was so friendly and kind (unlike our experience and the Crown) Great ambiance too! I would have returned for every meal if I could!

A spur of the moment decision made whilst having a Sunday lie-in. We had heard Harlem Cafe was proving popular and decided to give it a try. On arrival shortly after noon we found there to be a bit of a queue although we were shown to a table within a relatively short space of time. However, having been given... More

Haven't been to Harlem in years and pleasantly surprised. Busy with a queue at the door which a good sign - didn't have to wait long. Nice table by the door if not a little breezy. Took slightly too long for waiting staff to take order but we didn't have a long wait for food after that. Breakfast bruschetta was... More

Went here for lunch on a saturday. Very cozy place with live music. The lunch menu had several tempting meals. I went with a bacon/brie/cranberries wrap and a bowl of the soup of the day, and the were both amazing

We've been here 4 times and half of these ended with a great experience with amazing atmosphere, food and service, however the other 2, coincidentally when the manger is not around, provided a poor dining and service experience. This time we went for breakfast and after being promptly shown to our table and given menu's, were left by staff for... More
