153 Capel Street, Dublin 1
The food: Middle Eastern with other influences
Brother Hubbard has become a brunch/lunch institution in recent years, and owners James Boland and Garrett Fitzgerald recently extended their Capel Street location into a 250-seater cafe and restaurant. They've also added a general food store stocking Irish artisanal brands, and an in-house roastery is due to open soon. Open from breakfast to dinner with most of the dishes having a Middle-Eastern influence, and all of the breads and cakes made in house. They also have a southside branch in Dublin 8 which only opens for breakfast, brunch and lunch.
