Root & Branch Café
Ormeau Baths, 18 Ormeau Avenue, Belfast BT2 8HS, UK
Tucked away in the Ormeau Baths, this is one of Root and Branch's three venues. Though not ideal for large groups of people inside, if it's sunny there's long tables outside. Inside, there's a long bench with stalls; a perfect space for solo coffee drinkers or for two.
The long coffee bar hosts a wide variety of coffee equipment and plenty of space for the baristas to do their work. The space feels like it's out of an issue of Kinfolk magazine: a great tone of wall paint, a deep blue bar, wooden bench, and dark wood stalls. There's also upright wall tiles and hardy plants to finish the decor - it's a beautiful space.
The coffee is roasted in house and you'll find many cafés around the area using it. Here it is made particularly well.
