Brunch at Brother Hubbard (Dublin, Ireland)

I found this amazing little brunch place in Dublin - Brother Hubbard. It came highly recommended by our city tour guide and I actually had also already seen it online, when I googled brunch places. They have two locations, North and South of the Liffey. I went to the South location, it is about 10-15 minutes from the City Center and is frequented by tourists and locals alike. I ended up having brunch on a really nice and sunny morning, so that I could sit outside.

They have been on the list of the "Top 100 Places to Eat in Ireland" by McKenna's Guide for the past years. They also have a cookbook available in their online store.

Brother Hubbard - Middle East Feast

Their brunch menu is quite small but therefore their dishes are creative and interesting. They focus on fresh and healthy food, quality and value. Their flavor profil is Middle Eastern including spices such as cumin and harissa and often vegetarian friendly. They are intentionally avoiding the classical dishes. So, iIf you are looking for a traditional Irish / English or American breakfast, you will not find it here. However, the selected dishes are so flavorful, creative and nicely arranged. Among others, they serve Moroccan-style pancakes, Turkish eggs Menemen (similar to a shakshouka), and Greek yoghurt with granola. It is something special.

Fresh and High Quality Food -

Best Avocado Bread and Roasted Potatoes ever!

I tried "Brother Hubbard's Avo & Eggs" with a side of baby potatoes. I really enjoyed the potatoes, they came roasted with a red pepper aioli, paprika, cumin and fresh herbs. Also, the avocado toast was very creative. It included:
  • smashed avocado on Georgian bread
  • two poached eggs
  • chickpeas
  • a nut dukkah (Egyptian condiment of nuts, spices and herbs)
  • harissa yoghurt
  • fresh radishes and leaves
  • nigella seeds (black cumin, very nutritious)
Everything was just high quality. The potatoes were freshly roasted and not re-heated. The poached eggs were indeed runny and not - as so often - overcooked. The tea (lose tea) and orange juice (with pulp) were also high standard.

This breakfast had everything I could wish for and even more. No ordinary or boring breakfast, creative, fresh and just simply delicious! A fabulous way to start the day. Afterwards, I went on a Paddywaggon Tour to the Wicklow Mountains and Glendalough which was amazing as well. Antother great day on my Irish adventure :)
