LOVE this place! Both the main restaurant and cafe area do fantastic food and despite always being super busy, the staff are absolutely fantastic. This is always my first choice for lunch when shopping in belfast.

Every time I go- there is a huge queue. There must be a more logical and efficient system which they could employ. Food is reheated in microwaves so is not as fresh as could be. I also think more could be done to stop people...More

Went here twice food is good no it was very busy. They could do with more staff or a better system for clearing tables and taking orders. I would suggest go outside of the busy meal times as food is good.

Called in while shopping in the city on Saturday morning. We love the selection on offer. I had the goats cheese on peppers and ciabatta. Lovely combination. The only down sides of this place are the long queue and the staff could be friendlier. Will...More

Belfast rises late on weekends but this is a place designed to enjoy food with friends. We pre-booked an extended family group and be forewarned the plates of granola and pancakes are extremely generous! Stylish surroundings, central location, appetites sated, what not to like?

We arrived 16.40 on a Sunday in search of a quick light bite. Avoca closes at 18.00. Unfortunately the veritable smorgasbord was for looking at only & no longer available to customers. Our soup, scones & coffee were great. Service was cold & brusk.

Avocado cafe (upstairs turn R) is always busy - super busy in fact. The shared tables are usually packed and the place is buzzing BUT .... Once you actually get through the stressful ordering process the food is really rather disappointing (certainly no where close...More
