No matter what's going on in the world, brunch will always be a constant. For a while it looked like the only brunch we'd be enjoying for the foreseeable future would come from our own kitchen, but sure enough the cities cafés and restaurants have stepped up to the plate, and now there's brunch to go, brunch for pre-order, and brunch boxes you can get delivered to your door. Here are some of our favourites right now.
Terenure favourite Circa are back in business with brunch (or lunch) served Thursday - Sundays from 12:00 - 16:00. The fish tacos are excellent with IPA battered cod, homemade hot sauce, red cabbage slaw, radish, lime and avocado, and you may struggle to stop reaching for the buttermilk bacon with maple mayo. Order for collection on their website.
Two Boys Brew
Two Boys Brew are operating a click and collect service and brunch is back on the menu. Great news for fans of their hotcakes, as the current incarnation with strawberries, lemon curd and vanilla mousse is worth the journey alone. We're also very much liking the look of their new tradie bap with free range egg, hash brown, homemade tomato & chilli relish, crumbled black pudding and rocket. Order in advance on their website.
Network's brunch box is available for delivery across Dublin every Saturday morning, and contains their three most popular dishes - pancakes, notions on toast and the brunch bap (one for food sharers). It's €35 for two or €65 for four, and you get a lot of food. See more info and order here.
Francophiles rejoice, brunch at L’Gueuleton is back with a brunch box for two people. For €15 you'll get spice bags with confit duck, crispy potatoes, onions, peppers and fried duck eggs. Get more info on their website.
