Refresh is East Belfast Mission's very vibrant and extremely busy café based in Skainos Square. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner our team will ensure you are served quality food at affordable prices. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and a warm welcome for everyone. The cafe sources the finest local ingredients to create great tasting food. From homemade scones, light bites and speciality coffee to delicious larger meals, you will not be disappointed.
Welcome to refresh! As a social enterprise, our proﬁts enable East Belfast Mission to help a thousand vulnerable people ever y week to have a roof over their heads, get into work and improve their mental health. Every weekday we provide hot meals to over 50 local people who otherwise wouldn’t get a good nutritious meal and we provide training for scores of people who are unemployed, helping them get back into work.
We love making mouth-watering olive oil focaccias for breakfast, our famous homemade scones for coﬀee time, and slow-cooked rich beef bourguignon for lunch or dinner. But, we deliver even more than great tasting food – we make food that does good.
Hope to see you in the café soon.
Mike Wilson - Catering Manager

Meals on Wheels Service
Refresh delivers hot nutritious meals five days per week to over 50 housebound, elderly and sick clients in the local East Belfast area who would otherwise be without a substantial daily meal. This service has grown dramatically in recent years and has experienced demand from agencies involved in the care of the elderly and the disabled and is a lifeline to the many elderly people who live on their own. Unfortunately, many of those housebound individuals who receive the meals on wheels service lack daily contact with friends or family. Our friendly staff and volunteers not only deliver a hot, nutritious meal but provide a friendly face and kind words to individuals which can help alleviate some of the stresses of everyday life as well as the feelings of loneliness and isolation. If you or a family member could benefit from this service please contact us to sign up.
