After just spending a month in Paris along with copious amounts of Euro on coffee and cake, I needed to get my cafe fix in Belfast today. My aim was to actually take my computer and work for a little while with a coffee in the very french sounding cafe 'Le Petit Ormeau', but alas, they close at 3pm on a Tuesday and were just closing up. I wandered up the street to the Ormeau Road stalwart, 'Graffitti' where the tables are old Singer sewing machine bases, the cappuccino is served in something more akin to a soup bowl (which was a good thing) and the carrot cake has rum soaked raisins. Sold, and at £4.70, it felt like a complete steal after being used to paying Paris prices.
