I frequently visit this café on weekends for coffee. They used to have a pianist on Sundays but unfortunately, they haven't recently. I like both of their teas and coffees. Some of the staff members are very nice and friendly.

We booked Cafe Smart for a private function in the evening for my birthday! We had 40 people and were split over the two floors but despite this there was a great atmosphere and buzz!

You're guaranteed a nice lunch if you visit Café Smart, with a decent menu and some great lunchtime offers. It is well worth a visit but be wary that it isn't the largest place so you may have to wait for a seat. Furthermore parking can be tricky so use the side streets nearby if you're stuck. I highly recommend... More

Called into Cafe Smart for lunch on a Saturday. I had never been here before. It was quite busy but a table became available very quickly. The menu is good with plenty of choice. There is a lovely atmosphere with low volume music giving some background. We had chicken gougons and chips with sweet chilli sauce for £6.50. The food... More

Hello Mervyn Thank you for visiting and reviewing Cafe Smart. First of all apologies for what was a disappointing experience, resulting in a one star review. This is only our 2nd one star review in 7 years of business, so we do take it very seriously as we have award winning customer service and this is not our norm. We... More

Got takeaway coffee and cakes. Hot chocolate also great for kids as it comes with marshmallows and flake

There are (at last count) 6 cafes in a 400m stretch of the belmont road - this one is the 5th best (!) Does nothing bad, but the menu is limited & service just ok. Unfortunately the competition all beat it in most areas. Go if the others are crowded.
