AMc E Two Boys Brew 375 North Circular Road, Dublin 7.Locals were very cross indeed when the word got out about the super weekend brunch at Two Boy Brew in Phibsborough.There’s a small kitchen at the back where gold standard ingredients are turned into truly tasty breakfast and lunch fare, from scratch.
You’ll still have to queue at busy times for a pear and bacon sandwich.
Channeling everything they’d learned along the way, they got everything right at Two Boys Brew: the decor, the coffee and the food. You have to love a cafe that offers avocado on toast on their breakfast menu alongside a sausage sandwich.
Expect blueberry and ricotta hotcakes, slow cooked beef cheek sandwiches and The Boys Smoky Beans. Cloud Café on the North Strand does a super version of both classics from the opposite end of the brunch spectrum.
It me took a while to get there, but when I did it was heartening confirmation of how good our young cafe scene has become in recent years.
Coleman teams great vegetables from Mc Nally Family Farm with Gubbeen cheese and cured meats and Le Levain sourdough. And there are daily specials that are worth the trip to this in-between stretch of road between Rathmines and Rathgar.
