Our 7 Favourite Brunch Spots Around Dublin
Going for a brunch has become a real ‘thing’ to do in Dublin over the last few years and we’re a big fan. Whether you’re looking for a boozy brunch with the girls or the cure from heaven, there are so many great places to go that serve up all sorts of breakfast-meets-lunch options. Here’s just 7 of our go to’s for a Saturday or Sunday morning.
Located between Georges St and Camden St, the Whitefriar Grill is one of the most popular brunch spots around. On weekends they have someone on the decks pumping out great tunes whilst you enjoy your eggs and Bloody Mary’s, it’s a great way to start your day. We recommend the Lobster Hash!
2. San Lorenzos
Another epic spot is San Lorenzos on Georges Street with their now infamous ‘Brunch of Champions’ menu. It’s a mix between Italian-meets-mexican-meets-classic brunch with rare offerings such as coco pops french toast and brunch tacos. Our favourite is the crab cakes and poached eggs! Mmmm.
This carnivorous-joint on South William Street wouldn’t be as well know for it’s brunch menu but it should be. The food is oozing with flavour and if you get a seat outside on a sunny morning then it’s brunch heaven. Try the mushrooms with miso butter on sourdough toast – divine!
4. Sister Sadie
It’s the sister of Brother Hubbard located on South Circular Road (top of Camden Street), and with it’s brothers backing, it’s become one of the busiest places in the area for brunch at the weekend. This is something we can fully understand as we wouldn’t mind waiting to get a seat just to have their ‘Sr. Sadie Beans & Pulled Pork’!

5. Herb Street
With the views of Grand Canal Dock, Herb Street is a lovely spot for getting a gang together. The atmosphere is relaxed and there’s seating outside for a sunny day. Our favourite has to be their pancake stack – they have so many things you can put with it, including Canadian maple syrup – winner!
This delightful little neighbourhood cafe in Portobello feels like walking into a friends house who’s serving up the most delicious breakfast offerings. Their homemade granola is to die for, but we can’t help going for their classic eggs benedict with smoked salmon every time.
Cinnamon originally popped up in Ranelagh, but our favourite has to be the newly opened one in Monkstown to have brunch by the sea. They have a perfect setting for a lazy Sunday morning in the sun with their sofas and armchairs out the front, and good old classic Irish breakfast choices on the menu. We love their potato farl with black pudding with apple chutney.
