It may not the same as sitting down in a cosy coffee shop – latte in-hand and a big traybake to tuck into while catching up with friends or family – but many Belfast’s coffee shops continue to offer delectable coffee, tea and sweet treats to go!

We’ve paired tasty coffee takeaways with nearby walks, parks and points of interest. So, get together with a friend, grab a hot drink and enjoy a caffeine-fuelled stroll in the city.

The Lamppost Café

Inspired by CS Lewis, the family-run Lamppost Café on Upper Newtownards Road in east Belfast is a welcoming hidden gem. Step into its quaint interior to get a coffee, sweet treat or even a brunch to go. Continue the Narnia theme with a walk around CS Lewis Square and see if you can spot all seven sculptures depicting characters from The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.


Order your favourite Frappucino or espresso creation from Starbucks on Castle Lane then walk down Ann Street to the banks of the River Lagan where you’ll spot the Beacon of Hope. Follow the footpath on your left to the Big Fish and Albert Clock in Custom House Square, or cross the Lagan Weir footbridge to Titanic Quarter.


Coffee at Stormont Estate

With walking trails, a dog park, picnic areas and a huge adventure playground for the kids there are plenty of reasons to visit Stormont Estate, and with a coffee kiosk located right inside the play area, you can pick a hot drink while the kids play. The coffee dock is open during busy periods including weekends and school holidays.
