If you love brunch as much as me (and by that I mean a lot), you know that Dublin has uncountable places to go if you wanna grab a nice avocado toast and a fresh and high-quality coffee. As the big brunch seekers, like my friends and I, we have been to a lot of different cafes and restaurant in the capital and could easily list the ones worth visiting, so here are my top 6 places to have Brunch in Dublin, with good options even if you are visiting in a tight budget: 

1. Ground Station 

This relatively new cafe in The Liberties is one of the best additions to the area in the last couple of years, and before the pandemic, the space was also used as a yoga studio in the evening. Currently, with the restrictions, they are accelerating the delivery and take away service, and have a few seats outside – perfect for a sunny day. My absolute favourites are the Saucy Scrambled Eggs (with a vegan alternative), and the French Toast. They also serve a high quality coffee and are pet friendly… plus the brunch menu always adds more choice. 

Where? 48-50, Jame’s Street, Dublin, Ireland. Click here for Instagram.

2. Tailor&Blue

I haven’t been to Tailor &Blue yet but it’s on the top of my list of places to try. This new cafe in Phibsborough has big Brunch Menu with toasties, pancakes, porridge bowls, pastries and a lot more. With the new restrictions, customers can order online and get the food for take away, or enjoy their outside sitting area – perfect for sunny days. 

Where? 394 North Circular Road, Phibsborough, Dublin 7. Click here for Instagram.

3. PÓG

The PÓG Cafe has options for all the types of brunch lovers and two different locations in Dublin. Their Protein Pancakes are very famous and worth the try, there’s a huge number of toppings to choose and make it even more delicious. Personally, I love the smoothies and the Brazilian açai bowl- the best I’ve tried in Dublin so far. 

Where? 32 Bachelors Walk, Dublin 1 OR Trinity Plaza, Tara Street, Dublin 2. Click here for Instagram.

4. Chez Max

Chez Max was my first go-to for brunch in Dublin when I just moved here, since the prices were very good and the food and coffee were amazing. The place has a nice french bistrot vibe and also serves lunch and dinner. I love their brunch deal, in which you can get a coffee, an egg-benedict toast with salmon (that can be swapped for avocado), a side salad, and a glass of wine for only 12 euros. Another big perk it’s their location, just beside Dublin Castle and Damien Street.

5. Urbanity

Located in Smithfield, this nordic style inspired cafe serves excellent food and high quality coffee – roasted right there. The brunch and all-day dining menu are seasonal, to make sure all the ingredients are fresh, and they also have delicious pastries and cakes all year around. In 2020 Urbanity kept open with take away service and a new outside sitting area with covered tables.

Where? The Glass House – 11 Coke Lane, Smithfield, Dublin 7. Click here for Instagram.

6. Two Boys Brew 

This Phibsborough gem has one of the best brunches in Dublin, no doubts! With a seasonal menu, the Two Boys Brew has always fresh dishes with local ingredients, and high quality coffee, plus delicious croissants, porridge bowls, and cakes. Currently they are only doing take away  that you can pre order from their website

Where? 375 N Circular Rd, Phibsborough, Dublin 7. Click here for Instagram.
