The Centre also includes a coffee bar, named after East Belfast's famous author CS Lewis, affectionately known as 'Jack' to friends and family.

Bakery
“An artisan scratch bakery. Everything is made by hand with whole ingredients. They grind a lot of our own spices, we only use sea salt, eggs from a shell, real butter, and sunflower oil for example. Eat freshly baked bread : Focaccia, sourdough , bagels and sumptuous, mouthwatering savoury & sweet pastries. You can sit in and have coffee/tea and watch the world go by. The owner :Jennifer, is good crack and is passionate about her baking. You can taste it”
