South Belfast cafe is serving up world cuisine and 10 new jobs
A CAFE has created 10 jobs after opening for business in Belfast.
Cafe Melrose is owned by Paul and Sinead McElvanna and has taken over the site vacated by the former Jenz cafe on the Lisburn Road.
It serves up a range of healthy, vegetarian and gluten-free options, as well as catering for meat lovers.
According to the cafe, selling “worldly dishes, as eclectic as traditional African to authentic Chinese utilising locally sourced ingredients, makes for a genuinely intriguing and exciting m e n u ”.
There is also a range of signature milkshakes on offer.
The business will be opening for dinner too, and offering customers a ‘bring your own’ option for wine and beer. Ms McElvanna said: “We are really happy with how the cafe is performing within the first couple of weeks of it opening.
“We have a wonderful kitchen team at Cafe Melrose and already we seem to be gaining a reputation as an eatery which places big emphasis on quality, comfort and value.
“I find myself constantly mesmerised at the ambition and skill of our chefs who are continually bringing new dishes and flavours, which the Lisburn Road simply wouldn’t have seen before.”
