This is an interesting shop with a cafe upstairs offering tea, coffee, baked goods and a variety of salads and lunch dishes. A nice easy break while wondering in between sights in Belfast. Very nice staff.

We dined at a restaurant beside Avoca but could not resist calling here to take home some of their scones. Definitely the best for miles and a great range-they are huge. Give them a try and you will not be disappointed.
