Pocket sized Coffee

So a speedy dander one lunchtime brought me to the aptly named pocket which sits right across the road from the impressive Queen's University Lanyon Building (sadly half covered in scaffold at the minute). They've managed to squeeze a coffee house into what is really a living room, on the ground floor with a couple … Continue reading Pocket sized Coffee

Coffee by Quarters

Belfast has very recently settled itself into the very trendy position of being divided into “Quarters”. There do however seem to be 5 Quarters to speak of (i’ll just pause while you try and get you head round that one)... So there’s the Titanic, Cathedral, Linen, Gaeltacht and Queens (or University) Quarters plus the City … Continue reading Coffee by Quarters

Coffee at Bullitt Belfast

Bullitt is Belfast's newest hotel. A 4 star haven for anyone wishing to visit this great city. It's been portrayed as the hippest hotel around, flooding social media with sneak peaks and hype long before it's opening earlier this month. I hadn't planned a visit quite this early in its existence but found myself down Anne … Continue reading Coffee at Bullitt Belfast

Coffee and WiFi…Easily

Coffee and WiFi. Two of life's absolute necessities are they not?! Having done most if my growing up in the 90s (depending on who you ask, I may still be growing up) I guess this is a natural or perhaps a man-made evolution of 'Coffee & TV' that Blur famously sang about. These days, the … Continue reading Coffee and WiFi…Easily

Ground Espresso Bar | Bangor

So Nic, the boys and I visited the Ground in Toscana Retail Park, Bangor earlier today. Now I've been to a few different Ground cacafes and I must say this has to be one of the best, especially for the kiddies. Friendly and very understanding staff plus a great wee 'playground' (nice) area to keep … Continue reading Ground Espresso Bar | Bangor

Pausa in Dunelm Mill

Pausa @ Dunelm, Boucher Road, Belfast So on my latest excursion in an effort to keep my youngest little man entertained for more than 5 minutes (a mighty task in itself), we ended up in Dunelm Mill so he could hoover up a few snacks before nap time. This was after a jaunt round Musgrave … Continue reading Pausa in Dunelm Mill
