Loaf Café 

Fresh from a new refurbishment, Loaf Café in Ulster American Folk Park is open and ready for business, serving up award-winning sausage rolls, freshly prepared lunches, light bites, and a selection of sweet treats and hot drinks. 

Loaf Café is a social enterprise supporting and employing people with learning difficulties and autism, and buying from Loaf makes a real difference to the lives of the people who participate in it's training and employment programmes.

So pop into Loaf after a stroll around the museum and relax in a café with a social purpose. Open during museum hours. 


Bringing a packed lunch? Picnic tables are located around the perimeter of the main public car park.

Food and drink are not allowed in the museum's galleries.


The gift shop in our Visitor Centre has a wide range of unique gifts and souvenirs inspired by our collections. Why not pick up a momento from your trip or find that perfect gift for a family member or friend. 

Got a sweet tooth? Take a trip down memory lane to O’Doherty’s shop in our Ulster Street where you can pick up a quarter of sweets weighed out the traditional way by our costumed guide. 

Every sale supports National Museums NI and helps us to continue essential work within our museums. 

National Museums NI members receive a 10% discount in our café and shop. Find out more or sign up here
