Going for brunch in Dublin? Here are 7 places you need to try now...
The weekend is about many things. Meeting up with friends is one of them. If you’re planning on going for brunch in Dublin, we’ve got some suggestions. Seven to be precise. And we’re not only talking venues here – we’ve handpicked some dishes for you to try too…
Five Points, Harold’s Cross, Dublin 6
These guys are a 3FE offshoot, so even before you start eating you know it’s going to be an automatic hit. This along with a brunch menu packed with dishes such as Brioche French Toast Topped with Basil Ricotta Whip and you may never want to leave the place. Yay for coffee, food and serious weekend vibes!
Meet Me In The Morning, Portobello, Dublin 8
This cosy café in the heart of Portobello is going to become your go-to spot in this part of Dublin. Thinking out of the box makes all the difference when it comes to brunch and this café is clearly aware of this. Take their Eggs + Greens dish for instance. It doesn’t come with just any old yoghurt… oh no. Along with the kale, poached eggs and curley parsley, this dish is complimented with garlic yoghurt! It looks really pretty too. If you can get out without ordering some of their delicious cakes, you’re stronger than we are!

Storyboard, Islandbridge, Dublin 8
Think exposed pipes and floor to ceiling windows and you’ll get an idea of the look Storyboard have gone for. It’s all industrial, minimalistic chic and it works beautifully. Looking for a healthy brunch option? Granola is it, and this Islandbridge café has definitely upped the stakes when it comes to this weekend favourite. It’s packed with nut caramel, banana & lime purée, mint, apple and pomegranate seeds on a bed of natural yoghurt. UM… yes please!
L’Gueuleton, Fade Street, Dublin 2
Want your brunch with a bit of a French twist? You’ll find that and more at L’Gueuleton, a well-established gem on the Dublin brunch scene. If you like cheese and avocados, you need their Avocado Toastie with Cheddar in your life this weekend!
Fia, Rathgar, Dublin 6
You’ll find Fia tucked away in the heart of Rathgar on a very unassuming stretch of road. Blink and you could miss it, but try not too, as these guys create the most beautiful, not to mention tasty, dishes. They also do a mean Eggs + Greens dish. We’re aware it’s the second time we’re mentioning it, but we simply had to include it for two reasons. Firstly, how pretty does it look?! Secondly, their yoghurt is made with roast beetroot. Dee-lish!

Eggs and Greens with Roast Beetroot Yoghurt. The simplest dishes are often the best, but small changes now and again can reinvigorate your love for it. For a dish that hasn't come off the menu since we opened, it's a joy to watch it evolve and taste every new version. #fiacafe #supportlocal #dublin #cafefood #eggs #sourdough
Lorenzo’s, South Great George’s Street, Dublin 2
Holding the title of ‘Breakfast of Champions’, this is one of THE best places in Dublin for brunch. We have two words for you – Super Nachos. The perfect brunch dish to share in the centre of Dublin. This plate is piled with BBQ chilli beef, avocado & tomato salsa, melted cheddar cheese, jalapeños & sour cream. A weekend catch up will never be so enjoyable.
The Fumbally, Clanbrassil Street, Dublin 8
Pull up a mismatched chair and sink into brunch heaven. If we could you one piece of advice it’s to try the eggs… they’re pretty damn good! Lightly scrambled eggs with olive oil, Gubbeen cheese and garlic with fresh tomato and basil on toasted Tartine multigrain organic sourdough. NOM.
