Stopped by for a fry up. The presentation was excellent, the potato bread and soda were very fresh and everything was cooked to perfection and the staff were friendly and relaxed. This is the best I've stumbled across in Belfast. Full marks!

Excellent fry up in the traditional way. Nothing pretentious here, just good old fashioned grub. Great Belfast service, good craic with honest, welcoming staff, reasonably priced and a great place to start off your stay in town.
