Avoca Salt Cafe

This Monkstown Avoca Cafe is one of many in the city, but cleverly creates a different atmosphere and skillfully avoids the usual pitfalls associated with a successful chain. This bright and airy space has a vintage aesthetic and a fresh food market next door. Porridge, pancakes and a host of other brunch favorites are reinvented. They are beautifully presented to create a late morning meal that feels like a special occasion every time.

The Lo-Cal Kitchen

Located in the Phoenix Park Racecourse grounds, The Lo-Cal Kitchen serves wholesome, organic and locally sourced food that is as nourishing as it is delicious. Owned by seasoned designers and husband and wife team Stephen and Jenny Connolly, the beautiful space is yet another reason to make the trip. Try the ‘Healthy Hangover’. This is a cooked breakfast that opts for turkey bacon and sausages in place of pork with a side of fresh spinach and mushrooms. Or, opt for the ‘Power Porridge’, a superfood bonanza.
