Lunch isn't for wimps: Caffe Uno, Lombard St

Caffe Uno, Lombard St

I first discovered this place a few years ago on a shopping trip to Belfast with some friends from the north west and to this day, seven years later, the 'other half' is still raving about the lemon meringue pie.

If I recall correctly, the portion he was given, with a nice pot of tea to wash it down, was the same size as his own head. Down a quiet alleyway off the main drag of Royal Avenue and the Cornmarket, next to the ill-fated Delaneys, it is a little on the small side but service is fast and friendly. The menu boasts plenty of home-made staples like quiches, lasagne and pies as well as panini, wraps and baked potatoes and daily specials. As mentioned, Caffe Uno does a great line in home-baked goods for afters too, including yummy looking cream teas. Nothing on the food menu breaks the £6 barrier, very welcome in these straitened times. All sandwiches, panini and wraps come in under a fiver. Baguettes and a baked potato with one filling (sweet chilli chicken, since you ask) and side salad (including pesto-covered pasta spirals and potato salad, not just a limp lettuce leaf and an insipid tomato) at £5.75 so there is plenty of cash left to spend on those buns.
