    Savour the knowledge that the profits from this cosy cafe go to support community projects in the developing world. Hire back room for artistic performances/meet-ups. Enjoy live music most Fri nights.

    Like this tip if you were asked what you wanted before being presented with a menu. Every. Damn. Time.

    Also try the vegetarian quiche or the bagel with chicken & cashew nuts; both superb. More info on CG at www.commongrounds.co.uk. You could also head through nearby Botanic Gdns to the Ulster Museum.

    Does some of the best sandwiches and coffee in town. And their breads are delicious. Plus profits go to good causes. Can't beat that!!

    Related to my last tip: increased parking/walking time is worth it for the zucchini cake alone!

    For drivers: Allow plenty of time for parking. Had to re-convene elsewhere with client recently as he couldn't get parked anywhere nearby. (Both of us coming from out of town and both love the venue.)

    The café is not-for-profit, with revenue going to support community projects in the less developed world. So your coffee and croissant impacts more than just your hunger!

    Simple, but the muesli with chopped apple and banana is a winner. Scrambled eggs if you'd rather have something cooked.

    Loyalty stamp cards will get you a free hot drink after six purchases (vs. ten at Clements - which makes Common Grounds a good place for regulars).

    Just had Bacon Brie and Cranberry on sun-dried tomato bread - real good!

    Cinnamon scones like nothing you've ever tried before. You'll not be disappointed.
