General Merchants (Forestside)

Unnamed Road, Belfast BT8 6FX, UK

Editor's Review

General Merchants Forestside is a little taste of the original General Merchants, located amongst the well-frequented Forestside shopping centre. It serves the same great coffee from La Cabra, which is made with exactly the same precision, making for excellent coffee in a highly convenient location. As well as the coffee, it has a selection of the great food from the main store just down the road, but be careful, on a busy shopping day the food will sell out quickly. 

It also has the novelty of being in the open air with largely just benches for seating giving the authentic speciality coffee shop feel, with a tranquil atmosphere as you watch the bustle of shoppers around the retail park.
