The Bobbin Coffee Shop

City Hall Donegall Square Belfast BT1 5GS

The main attraction of this café is that it is situated within Belfast's imposing City Hall, arriving as part of its £11million refurbishment between 2007 and 2009, and named in honour of the city's once thriving linen industry (a bobbin being the spindle on which the yarn was wound).  Best approached through the spectacular main building itself, it offers light snacks, with a broad range of wraps, soups and stews.  It also has an all-day breakfast menu which includes the lightest and tastiest scrambled eggs on toast that you will ever taste.  Situated to the rear of the main building, the café may not offer spectacular views, but its high-ceilinged interior does feature impressive displays detailing key dates and event's in the city's history, including its heavy industrial past and its sporting and music traditions. The two permanent exhibitions are 'Waking the Giant' and the 'No Mean City' photography display.  There are also often examples of local art and crafts on view in the adjoining rooms – well worth a look after a spot of city-center sightseeing or completing one of the City Hall's daily tours.
