Went to the cafe with family friends. Nice selection of food, but expensive compared with similar cafes. £5.20 for a sandwich (no salads, crisps etc). Floor was dirty & tables were left a long time before they were cleared. Also had to ask a few...times before we got the correct order.More

Great wee cafe. Often pop in for coffee and a croissant. Cheery, friendly staff. Good coffee (they always have decaff) and great selection of buns.

This cafe is located in one corner of the Guildhall. It offers both indoor and ourdoor seating. The cakes were adequate but coffee awfully weak. Pricey too. Some of the lunch items looked appealing though

Lovely ciabatta, cakes and a buttered apple tart which was just the best ever. Thanks to Nicole for that recommendation ! Sat outside and enjoyed our food with great coffee.

Went to the Guild Cafe for lunch on Monday as they are taking part in the Eat Out to Help out Scheme. I had the Coronation Chicken Wrap which was lovely. I would recommend it. The only issue I had was I felt the options...were fairly limited. Other than that a nice cafe. There is both indoor and outdoor seating available.More

Nice cafe , but spoiled for me when I observed a large bluebottle in the glass display counter.it was trapped in there by a piece of muslin, meant for keeping it out! It was flitting around landing on both wraps, panini’s etc, and the sweet...pastries. I pointed this out to the young lady serving, but she only very half-heartedly tried to remove it. I was unable to order anything because of this and just had coffee. Disappointing!More

Good tea (Suki) and coffee, sandwiches and cake. Pleasant staff. Great location at the back of the Guildhall.

The service was super friendly, but the food did not taste at all. I mean it was okay, but it’s not brilliant. This is definitely not a 4,5/5, I’m sorry. It must be said, that the food was looking fabulous. So summarized it’s a 2,5/5.

Perfectly located at the Guildhall, and overlooking the river, this little gem is a relaxing spot to enjoy a coffee and scone. No blaring music, just a calm ambience and efficient service.

Up for business meeting and called in here before heading back to Belfast. What a lovely place to spend time in such a fabulous building! Will keep it in mind for next time!
