General Merchants

481 Upper Newtownards Road, Belfast BT4 3LL, UK

Editor's Review

Set in the suburbs of Belfast, on the doorstep of Stormont, this is the perfect place for something warm to drink after a walk around the local Stormont park. As you walk through the doors you are welcomed into the rustic setting by being taken to a seat with a menu. As you scan the menu, you see that this is much more than just a quick stop coffee corner, but a fine café offering speciality coffee and quality food. There is a classy feel to this spacious coffee shop with many different people ordering, from students doing work, to retired couples out for morning coffee.

Their coffee is delicately crafted with the baristas on hand to give advice and guide you through the different coffee options. As well as providing something for you to enjoy, General Merchants have plenty for you to buy for the road with different milk varieties, coffee cups, and beans all available to purchase easily with your contactless card. This is a gem to stop at if you’re on the outer ring, but careful when parking on the nearby streets as traffic wardens will always be out on patrol in the area.
