Belfast should learn from the Ormeau Road says Granary owner
28 May 2013
David Edwards, owner of Granary Coffee and Sandwich Bar, firmly believes the level of harmony on the Ormeau Road should be used as a blueprint for the rest of Belfast.
Business has been going well for the Granary Coffee and Sandwich Bar, which is celebrating its first year on the road.
David moved to the Ormeau after selling his previous sandwich business, Peppers at Boucher Road, which he ran for ten years, and has no regrets at making the move.
I saw an opening on the Ormeau Road and I took it. I had always fancied working in this area and I made the right decision. People have been very supportive, including Patricia McNeill of Ormeau Business Park, and I try to support other local businesses as much as I can, he added.
The cafe serves a wide range of hot and cold food, including delicious, freshly made sandwiches, homemade soups and stews, Panini’s and breakfasts. It also offers a mouth-watering selection of pastries, Morelli’s Ice Cream and specialised coffees.
We keep everything fresh and only use the best of products in everything. Everybody is welcome here and our staff are very knowledgeable and friendly,â€ he said.
The Ormeau Road is home to a lot of small businesses and the Granary offers a daily delivery service, bringing lunches and fresh fruit platters to hungry office workers.
We supply platters and sandwiches to the likes of the Pharmaceutical Society in University Street and local schools such Aquinas, St Joseph’s and Lagan College. I get my fresh produce locally from Michel’s Fruit and Veg and the French Village Bakery,â€ added David.
The Granary offers sit-in or take away meals and a free delivery service. It has free Wi-Fi and caters for both vegetarians and vegans, as well as providing gluten-free food for people who have coeliac disease.
Telephone orders are welcome and the cafe can be contacted on 02890 643603. To find out more about the business and its fantastic food, why not like them on Facebook.
