Coffee Yard was conceived through a family’s passion for coffee, food, music & fine design. With these these things in mind and with careful consideration Hackett and Hall architects (the Mac Belfast) were appointed to create our vision from the ground up. With oak floors, bespoke furniture, large windows and even handmade table numbers, everything was carefully considered and selected .

We then carefully sourced only the finest coffee, tea & food from local suppliers & opened the doors back in 2005 with a small team, some of whom are still with us to date!

“systems systems systems”

Our ethos has always been to create a family-run business and currently brothers Chris & Richard head up the Coffee Yard. Father Jim ‘jimbo’ Beattie, completing the line up for Yard Gallery (the adjoining business). Nicki ‘mother to all’ just loves everything paperwork (yeah right!) and is often the friendly face you’ll see welcoming customers through our doors! We really do have a stellar team of staff around us. Jimbo’s mantra “Systems, systems, systems” is the backbone to success along with ‘quality, service & cleanliness’. This has allowed Coffee Yard to become a well-oiled machine, providing a place for the community to gather and feel part of.

So, if you are still reading this, then please stop, call in, choose your favourite spot, and let us get to know you…it’ll be just like Cheers, where everybody knows your name, except without the possible liver damage.
