A successful coffee shop will need to attract customers not only with an appealing variety of different coffees but also with an attractive atmosphere; it also helps if they provide good food, either as meals or for quick snacks to be consumed alongside a hot drink. And so, here is a list of some of the coffee shops in Belfast that have succeeded in appealing to the city's coffee enthusiasts.
When it comes to visitors to Belfast, one of the more popular places to stay is the Bullitt hotel. The hotel is home to the Bullitt Bar which, in addition to alcohol, offers delicious coffee straight from its Kees van der Westen coffee machine. For people staying at Bullitt during a trip to Belfast, sampling coffee at the bar is a popular way to spend a relaxing afternoon or evening. Bullitt even has a rooftop bar named Babel, for those who want something truly unusual.
Only a short distance from the St Anne’s Belfast Cathedral is Curated Kitchen & Coffee, a café and speciality coffee shop that has won acclaim with the public. Innumerable visitors have come to Curated Kitchen & Coffee to enjoy a meal and coffee while steeped in the unique history of the city. It is not the only coffee shop in the Cathedral Quarter, however: while Curated Kitchen & Coffee is a popular choice for both food and drink, the nearby Established Coffee is a close rival for public affections. The two have distinct aesthetics, Curated Kitchen & Coffee packaging itself as a more traditional choice while Established Coffee favours a distinctive, modern flavour. Established Coffee has an added twist in that it provides an academy for those who want to brew professional-quality coffee at home.
Even more up-to-date than Established Coffee is Franklin and James Espresso Bar, a relatively recent addition to the ranks of Belfast coffee shops and one that strives for a modern, sparkling-clean interior feel. As customers sit among the polished white and gleaming steel surroundings of Franklin and James Espresso Bar, they are able to sample from a range of different coffees along with teas and snacks.
