Five fab brunches in Dublin to get your fix next weekend
What could be better than a late breakfast, accompanied by some bubbles? It’s the only way to spend your Sunday, so here are the top five brunches in the city right now...
6 Essex St East, Dublin 2
An all-you can eat brunch? What's not to love? Cleaver East have taken the famous NYC staple and brought it to Dublin, big style. Sample the envy-inducing menu while you enjoy endless boozy top-ups until you're ready to go merrily on your way. It's the bottomless brunch of dreams- Mimosa for everyone (which you can avail of for just €15). Every Sunday from 12pm-3pm.
South Great George’s St, Dublin 2
The ‘Brunch of Champions’ at San Lorenzo is the real deal — so much so, you will need to queue early if you want to nab a table at the weekends. The music is loud and the service is fast, but it’s the gargantuan menu that deserves real props. Coco Pops French toast or crab cakes are real winners. And dessert? The New York Nutella baked cheesecake is everything. Saturday, 10.30am-3pm, and Sunday, 10.30am-4pm.
153 Capel St, Dublin 1
So much choice, so little stomach space — the standout at brunch is the Middle Eastern breakfast plate: a feed of egg, hummus, feta, cucumber, tomato and fresh mint. Go healthy with Turkish eggs menemen or go bold with the beans and pulled-pork special. The perfect cafe vibe, it may be snug but it’s darling.
16 Aungier Street, Dublin 2
Arguably one of Dublin’s best brunch spots, there’s not much to complain about here. Clever cocktails, fresh juices and a rather sumptuous menu make this the perfect place to while away an afternoon. Soak up the atmosphere while you chow down on a menu that includes the utterly delectable huevos rancheros with chorizo, black eyed beans, corn tortillas, tomato chipotle salsa, guacamole, fried eggs and obviously, leave room for dessert — checkout the Belgian wafflesor, a personal favourite, chocolate fondue with peanut-butter fudge, marshmallows and pineapple
47 Ranelagh, Dublin 6
A foodie’s paradise, Dillinger’s is one of the most Instagrammable brunches you could hope for — no filter required. Served Saturday and Sunday, from 11am-4pm, tag your photos #BRUNCHtastic to share with other brunch fiends and land a prize. Get a load of Dillinger’s Burger: aged beef burger, smoked cheese, pickles and fries, or try the new classic Louisiana spiced chicken, buttermilk waffles and spiced maple syrup.
