Looking at their evening menu they do a plate of Irish cheeses, cracker biscuits and berries as a dessert. Elsewhere there is bread on the menu. I am sure they can meet your request.

In 2002 AMPM was set up in Upper Arthur Street Belfast. Combining an intimate, unique cutting edge ambience AMPM was known for its stylish design, atmosphere & wholesome cuisine. Since then AMPM Restaurant has evolved and was extended and refurbished in 2011. It is known for its combination of unique, original, incomparable, quirky decor, ambience & cuisine. AMPM Restaurant Belfast City Centre is located near the City Hall and is one of the finest restaurants in Belfast We are positioned at the epicentre of all that happens in Belfast both literally and metaphorically. Unique, quaint, chic, cosy, sexy, funky are all descriptions that 'nearly' let you know what this place is like. From French chic decor to Irish fusion cuisine AM PM Arthur street is the best blend of good taste. You will find the shabby chic rubbing shoulders with the classically demur. The menu is global comfort food and old favourites with a new suit of clothes and by god it looks good and tastes even better. With most of Belfast's dj's cutting their teeth at this intimate venue AMPM Arthur has and continues to be at the cutting edge of all that is good about an outlet that is not afraid to be different
