69 University Road, Belfast, County Antrim, BT7 1NF
The Pocket


The pocket is a small space with a big reputation for incredible food and some of the best single origin coffee in Belfast.

Located in a historic Georgian building in the heart of the vibrant Queen's Quarter, this cafe offers you a delicious break from touring The Botanic Gardens and The Ulster Museum, all just a few minutes’ walk. Our beautiful raw brick interiors provide the backdrop for large sash windows that overlook the highly photographed, architectural wonder that is Queen's University.

If it's all day brunch, lunch or something sweet you are after, join us for a culinary experience like no other as we take you on a journey of exciting flavours before your next NI adventure.
