SD Bell & Co Limited
They’ve been doing their thing for over 130 years! What started off as a general store and hardware business down in Belfast City Centre in 1887 remains Ireland’s oldest independent Tea Importer and Coffee Roaster.
The hub is just down the road from Stormont at the aptly named Leaf and Berry Coffee House, Tea Rooms and Emporium. You can smell the roast in the air if you’re up early enough. That’s also where they blend and pack their teas, and serve their internet business and their long list of quality delicatessens, hotels and restaurant customers.
Robert represents the fourth generation of the Bell family to carry on the trade.

The Leaf & Berry is also available as a venue for private functions.
