Loaf catering runs four cafés – two in Belfast, The Bobbin and our Café Bakery on Grosvenor Road.  We have a pottery in Crawfordsburn, Co Down and we are at the Ulster American Folk Park in Omagh

Loaf Pottery & Coffee Shop

We run an exciting programme of events throughout the year and our Pottery is available for private hire for meetings, parties and other events.


The Pottery is located on Main Street in Crawfordsburn on the site of the former Pinewood Pottery. NOW Group secured funding from Ards and North Down Borough Council, Ulster Garden Villages, the Coastal Communities Fund and George Best Belfast City Airport to renovate the space after being contacted by local residents who were keen to see the pottery restored and open to the community again.

The Pottery is open seven days a week and offers a variety of activities including arts classes and drop in Paint Me, Glaze Me workshops. Our café serves a choice of delicious coffee, deli sharing boards, artisan wood fired pizzas and Loaf’s award winning sausage rolls. We are open late Thursday and Friday nights for our popular pizza nights.


Loaf Café & Bakery

Loaf Café & Bakery is a social enterprise that opened for business in June 2015 after we breathed life back into the derelict building previously known as the Oak Bar. Reborn as a bright yellow building, it has already become something of a local landmark. 

If you're local, visiting family or friends or working at the Royal Victoria Hospital, Loaf Café & Bakery is a good place to relax and take some time out. Try our famous Loaf sausage rolls with secret recipe relish, social soup with mini wheaten bread, ALL DAY FRY or tempt yourself with a traybake or bun all made by our inhouse bakers. We know you're gonna love it!

We're a social enterprise supporting people with learning disabilities and autism get training and jobs in the catering industry. We are building a new community of food lovers and people interested in using their money to make an impact. 

The Bobbin 

A social enterprise located in Belfast City Hall. Located in the east wing of this iconic building that has recently been redesigned with a new £1.3million visitor exhibition. The café has a local menu and is a beautiful space right in the heart of our vibrant city.


The café is open seven days a week serving a wide range of breakfast and lunch options to tourists and locals alike. Popular items include our range of freshly made sandwiches on artisan bread and our traditional Irish stew. There’s also a special menu for kids.

Loaf at the Folk Park in Omagh

Situated within the Ulster American Folk Park in Omagh, our all-new Loaf Café comes as part of our exciting recent partnership with National Museums NI.


Having gone through a complete refurbishment, our Loaf Café is now open and ready for business - serving up award-winning sausage rolls and other locally sourced, freshly prepared dishes as well as a selection of hot drinks and sweet treats.


Buying from Loaf makes a real difference to the lives of the people who participate in our training and employment programmes.

If you’re visiting the Folk Park, pop in and relax in our café with a social purpose. We look forward to welcoming you to our new and improved space!
