In the heart of City Market, Belford's is known for its appealing ambience and as a great spot for people-watching. The food can also be a draw, particularly during brunch on Sunday, when so many other downtown venues are closed. They start serving mimosas at 12:30 pm, and the menu includes savory dishes like smoked salmon Florentine, crab frittatas, and seafood crepes. For lunch and dinner, the focus shifts to creative seafood dishes, such as their award-winning Cajun lobster ravioli. Once a wholesale grocery company, the building has been tweaked for a modern vibe (wooden floors, exposed brick walls, huge windows, and an expansive outdoor patio). Today, Belford's mainly caters to the tourist trade and, as a consequence, quality can be inconsistent.
