Any time my mum, sister and i visit we head to Avoca for lunch. Lovely staff and fantastic food every time. Would highly recommend the duck salad and a glass of prosecco.

Having recently arrived in Belfast for the first time a local who gave us directions recommended we try Avoca. Decided to eat in the restaurant side. Not an extensive range so if you are a fussy eater it is hard to choose. Portions are quite large on what we ordered and tasty but not exceptional given the price. Service was... More

Good place to get an Ulster Fry to set you up for the morning and indeed the day. Situated on the first floor of the Avoca homeware and clothing store there were lots of other breakfast choices too. Service was very friendly and efficient.

Lovely little cafe in the upstairs of the shop, lots of choice for people wanting a light bite or something more substantial. We just had hot drinks and the patè to share, the bread which came with it was gorgeous! The shop has some nice items however on the pricer side. Worth a visit!

Great menu choice for lunch, nice coffee and cakes. Great value for money, not over priced. Had to wait a couple of minutes for a free table, but not too long.

Not sure if Monday lunchtime is a mirror of the rest of the week but the cafe reflected Belfast traffic. There was a bottleneck at the serving counter and a major blockage at the till, so much so that people were finding that trays with hot food were queued waiting for payment and by the time they got to sit...

After having perfectly adequate breakfasts at our hotel on our first two mornings, we asked our receptionist to recommend a local alternative for the last day of our short break in Belfast. She suggested Avoca proudly stating "they even put fresh mint in the jugs of water!" Our party of four were not disappointed. All four meals, traditional fry up,... More
