East Belfast Enterprise, located at the gateway of East Belfast, has welcomed the arrival of a new tenant offering ‘brew-tiful’ gourmet coffee and baked delicacies.

Happy Out Coffee, born out of a mobile coffee company travelling the length and breadth of Ireland catering markets, festivals, parties, weddings, Pride and corporate events, has taken up residence in City East on Newtownards Road.

Open daily from Monday to Saturday, the menu ranges from early morning bakes to lunch time favourites of sandwiches, wraps, toasties, stews and soups, accompanied by high quality coffees and non-coffee options, until early evening.

Owners Vic Young and Alex Campbell have partnered with their new business partner Eamonn McGill in their expansion to their new bricks-and-mortar café space and are incredibly passionate about the food and coffee being served. Vic said: “Our beans are supplied by Bailies Coffee Roasters – a local speciality coffee company dedicated to the ethical and sustainable sourcing of their beans by working directly with some of the finest coffee farmers and their communities”.


“The Bailies Coffee perfectly complements our carefully curated traybake menu and vice versa, with everything fresh-baked daily, including options available for vegan and gluten free dietary requirements. There’s a full range from croissants to accompany the first coffee of the day to traybakes including decadent Belgian chocolate brownies, white chocolate blondies and sponges. A sweet indulgence is a must following one of our daily specials which can be anything from an overnight slow cooked meat dish to a fulsome flavoured soup with fresh-baked focaccia, as we change it up every day.”

Speaking about welcoming the new tenant at City East, Jonathan McAlpin, Chief Executive of East Belfast Enterprise, said: “At East Belfast Enterprise we are committed to nurturing and assisting in the growth of new businesses, and we are very excited to welcome Happy Out Coffee to our café space on Newtownards Road.

“As well as providing our entrepreneurs with onsite homecooked food and speciality coffees, the local community can start their day with a takeaway coffee, sit in and sip a cuppa and watch the world go by ahead of their commute into the city centre, drop in for lunch or enjoy a well earned afternoon snack.

“We wish the Happy Out Coffee team every success in their expansion as they put down their roots in City East while their van continues to clock up the miles.”
