I am confused. What exactly is Town Square?
Lets cut straight to the chase. Town Square is a 70 seater café, connected to a 70 seater bar. Its situated in the Queens Quarter in Belfast. Check us out on google maps.
What is the vibe?
The café sits somewhere between a coffee shop and a restaurant. In the mornings, you will see people eating breakfast, having coffee with friends, working on laptops and meeting clients. This continues through lunch and into the afternoon.
By dinner time, the lights are dimmed and the connected bar opens. Less laptops, more craic. Less business meetings, more social gatherings.
Are you award winning?
So glad that you asked! We’ve won loads of awards for our coffee and our cocktails. We have been recommended on more ‘Top 10 Lists’ for our food than we could count, and we are quietly confident that our coffee is the best on the island.
Are all the staff pretentious hipsters?
Not at all. While we do take our coffee and food seriously, we won’t annoy you if you don’t care. If you want to put milk in your filter coffee or you want your steak burnt to a crisp, then we won’t get in a tizzy.
Do I need to book a table?
Generally speaking you don’t need to book for small parties of 2 or 4 people. If you want to be sure of a table for 6 or more people, then we would reccomend booking via the website. If you are booking a large party then we will need to take pre orders for food, to make sure that we get it all out to you on time.
What is all the brand spiel about?
We created Town Square to be a ‘meeting place’ for the city - just like traditional town squares would have been in the good old days.
We love the fact that friendships are built and business deals are done around tables at Town Square each and every day.
Can I run an event in the café or the bar?
We host all kinds of events. Literally all kinds.
We have hosted TedX events, film screenings, conferences, concerts, pop up shops, wine tastings, charity fundraisers, weddings and straight-up parties. We can host events of between 10 and 320 people.

Are you secretly owned by a big bad corporate company?
No! We are independently owned by 2 belfast brothers. We also try to source our food and drink locally so you can be sure that you are supporting the local economy! In case you are interested, we also recently opened The Flint on Howard Street.
