Went to Clements Botanic 5th Jan for a morning coffee. Although the place was empty, after nearly a 10 min wait, I was forced to ask a member of the staff to take my order. The Cappuccino that arrived was lukewarm and anaemic, bearing no resemblance to that which one would expect from a Clements coffee shop. Disappointing.

Close to Queens University, the Clements cafe offers good coffee and a varied selection of sandwiches and wraps and all at affordable prices. It attracts a mixed but mostly young crowd and the welcoming atmosphere has much to do with the friendly staff.

Visited here with the intention of just having a Latte but ended up having a slice of cake as well which was delicious. Good place to meet up.

Lunch was needed in Ballyhackamore this Saturday so decided to try Clements cafe, it's ok, clean, good service, but the food was decidedly lack lustre, we both had soup and a panini, portions were mean to say the least, no bread, no salad, would we go again? Probably not, far better places to eat very close by

Meet a friend here every few months for lunch. Busy spot which is always a good sign. Excellent selection of sandwiches and pain is. Had the bacon and Brie which is a particular favourite. Very tasty. Coffee is always good. Staff very friendly. Pleasant spot to spend some time.

2 x (coffees and bagels) for nearly £13. I can't wrap my head around it. The place is nice, a lot of free WiFi users but that's overrated. I'll not be back

The multi coloured light panel adds pzazz to this already cool cafe with it's 'sink into' sofas and funky armchairs. Service is friendly and efficient, the staff are spot on and the coffee tastes great. If we hadn't planned to have lunch at Belfast's only completely vegan cafe, we would certainly have tried the chickpea, aubergine, courgette and salsa vegan... More

I enjoy coming here! Great coffee! Calm and accepting atmosphere. Funny staff even a cool etching on the bathroom mirror. What more could you want. Perfect for a quick bite and a coffee.
