Where’s good for brunch in Dublin you ask? Well, it’s safe to say that the city has accepted the ongoing ‘brunch craze’ with open arms and a new brunch spot seems to be popping up on every corner. We’ve sampled the city’s best brunch spots and would like to recommend our top five brunch destinations in Dublin.
Two Boys Brew
375 North Circular Road, Dublin 7
Described as a ‘neighbourhood café’ in the buzzing town of Phibsborough, Two Boys Brew has quickly become one of Dublin’s most popular spots for weekend brunch. Ingredients are sourced from local Irish producers and their coffee is highly commended.
Brunch is served all day on weekends at Two Boys Brew and there’s plenty of options for veggies and vegans and there’s an allergens menu available.
They only take email bookings for groups of 6 people or more at Two Boys Brew and the cafe is slightly small so you may have to wait for a table – but it’s worth it! Having a celebration? Order a bottle of Belstar DOC prosecco for €40.
Two Boys Brew’s kitchen is open from 8am – 3pm Wednesdays – Fridays, and from 9am – 3.30pm on Saturdays & Sundays.
73-83 South Great George’s Street, Dublin 2
Serving ‘The Brunch of Champions’ every weekend and bank holiday Monday, San Lorenzo’s is a household name when it comes to brunch in Dublin. The Brunch of Champions is loud, busy, and lots of fun. The resident DJ plays chart toppers as you sip on mimosas and enjoy their most famous dish: Coco Pops French toast.
153 Capel Street, Dublin 1
Ideally located in the centre of Dublin just a five-minute walk from Temple Bar, Brother Hubbard’s brunch dishes have a middle eastern flare. The restaurant provides diners with top range coffee, creative dishes and a warm welcome.
Families are welcomed and the restaurant has an outdoor courtyard that is dedicated to non-smokers. Most dishes on the menu cost no more than €12.95 and options include a Velvet Cloud Yoghurt Pannacotta & Granola and a Vegan Mezze Board. You can customise them by adding extras such as avocado, pan-fried chorizo and grilled halloumi.
Bow Lane Grill
17 Aungier St, Dublin 2
Bow Lane Grill is a steakhouse with strong New York vibes. The restaurant is packed each and every weekend when diners show up for brunch from 10.30am. Highlights from their brunch menu include huevos rancheros and crab & king prawn hash.
No brunch is complete without a cocktail and Bow Lane’s cocktail menu does not disappoint! Keep it traditional with a mimosa or push the boat out and sample their Peach Margarita. Booking is most definitely advised for brunch at Bow Lane Grill and you can do so through their website.
12 S Circular Rd, Portobello, Dublin 8
ALMA is a family-run cafe and a must-visit when in Dublin. The owners hail from Argentina and bring their love of food with great produce to create a delicious menu. Highlights include Steak con Chimichurri and Smokey West Corkey Pancakes. Be ready to queue for your brunch at the weekend but the wait is worth it!
