District, Ormeau Road, Belfast
I got there early to check it out and managed to snag a seat in the corner, overlooking the entire restaurant. It had the kind of atmosphere where I would have been happy to chill out there for the entire day – and would have if there had been a plug at my seat! There were plugs at the window seats, but not the table and bench that I was at.
District Coffee is bright, open, and very clean feeling, but not at all in a sterile way. It was minimalistic with dark walls and white subway tiles. There is also an outdoor seating area – great for a nice day!
While waiting for my meeting to arrive, I ordered an oat milk flat white (they actually get their oat milk delivered from 387 Ormeau Road!). To say it was delicious would be a complete understatement!
The oat milk was subtle, steamed to perfection with just a bit of foam. It paired well with the beans, a dark roast with plenty of nutty, caramel flavours.
Food to Die For
After a productive meeting, I decided to order lunch. I had avocado on toast with dukkah spice on top. It came highly recommended by the lovely member of staff serving me. I also ordered another of those delightful coffees!
The food, coffee, and staff were all the image of perfection here at District Coffee, Ormeau Road. I would definitely, 100% go back!
District, Stranmillis Road
There’s another District Coffee on Stranmillis Avenue, in Belfast. I haven’t been here during opening hours, but I did have the pleasure to attend an impromptu Aeropress competition!
Hosted by the lovely Julia McKenna from Baillies Coffee Roasters, though a bit under attended sadly, this was a super fun, casual night practising some rusty skills. I’d love to head back to this branch of District through the day and grab a tasty coffee and a vegan sweet (which I’ve heard they have!)
There were a few newbies practising their brew skills, including my other half, Thom! Here he is being super cute while making his very first Aeropress. Go Thom!
Thanks, Julia, for organising a fun event and District Coffee for hosting! Looking forward to future events!
