I can still hardly believe my eyes every time (about 50 times an hour) I check Trip Advisor for restaurant reviews in Belfast and Dock Cafe appears as no.1 – first out of 745!
In a world which often prefers to knock people down than build them up, it is deeply moving and humbling to read all the amazing reviews – I am hugely grateful to the many people who put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard I suppose) to tell the story of their trip to The Dock. Looking around the cafe on a busy bustly day like today, it’s incredible to realise that out there in the midst of the throng of customers so many people are finding a welcome, a sanctuary and a home-from-home in our crazy hand-built pop-up cafe.
If you haven’t already, check out the Trip Advisor reviews here, and the next time you see a Dock volunteer, give them a wee pat on the back – it truly is thanks to them that people enjoy their visit to The Dock so much.
Here’s a sample of some of the comments:
Our 7 year old son said the Dock was “Most wonderfully excellent” I have to agree.
Great decor, great location – hope it continues!
The Dock Honest Box cafe is seriously a gem to Belfast. My boyfriend and I found out about it during money struggling times when we couldn’t afford to be working at other cafés.
amaaaaazing 🙂 yummy soup and wheaten, best atmosphere, lovely hive of business … could have stayed all day!
Great range of teas, lovely soup and delicious scones. The volunteers are really friendly and the artwork and decor is cool.
Really welcoming, relaxed and quirky. Great concept with its ‘honesty box’ and BYOF policy. Miss match furniture is very tastefully arranged to provide lots of different cozy seating areas.
This is surely another example of what Belfast really has to offer and is well worth supporting. Thanks to all the staff and keep up the good work.
This place has restored my faith in human nature.
It all just makes me feel very very thankful – to the people who took time to write a review, to the fabulous volunteers and team who give so much time and love to Dock Cafe, to God that I get to be part of this amazing ever-expanding life-changing adventure.
Who would’ve dreamt of this when we opened the doors two years ago!
