North Belfast business offers free breakfast service for local school children

By Orlaith Clinton

A North Belfast deli has offered school children a free breakfast service.

Owners of Jose's Deli, based on the Hillview Road, say they will now open early for parents to bring their children in.

Having only opened a few months, the new spot is in high demand, with hundreds crossing their doors each week for their dirty fries and friendly hospitality.

Their post read: "Breakfast Club - Running late? Struggling to get ready? Tired? Leave it to us....

"Free cereal for all your little ones before school. Jose's Deli will be open for the school run from 8.15am. This time is just for the free breakfast."

Their kind gesture was welcomed by the North Belfast community, with many parents taking to their page to thank them and praise them.

As part of our Belfast is Back campaign in May, owners Patrick Fox and Michael Opie spoke to Belfast Live.

Michael said: "When people walk in, the atmosphere is friendly and funny. No matter how busy or hectic it will be, when you come in to Jose's Deli you'll be met with down to earth people and good craic.

"We have had people calling from Crumlin, Derry, Ormeau Road and beyond. For the future, watch this space. The sky is the limit."
