    I used to work on Camden st about 15years ago, there used to be a little cafe on montague st run by a guy called Des, had the best breakfast sandwiches ever! we used to send out for them for the tea break on a saturday. it was a full breakfast cooked to order between 2 slices of toasted batch bread, wrapped in tin foil, and by the time you opened up the sambo' the heat and steam had softened the toast. they were the king of breakfast sandwiches. anyone know if they're still there?


    I remember the place and the old boy Des, many a hang-over brekkie was consumed at lunchtime in that place :)- he sold out a good few years ago - theres a restuarant there called Bliss.

    There is a place on Montague street called Gerrys, Its a real rough and ready place,I remeber it years ago before it was redeveloped, you used to be in the persons front room alsmost and none of the crockery matched..It good home made cooking the same as what you get now...

    There used to be loads of newsagents in Dublin that had a breakfast fry ready in the back with a few tables.

    The only place now I know is the Kylemore(?) bakery oppsite the main entrance to the Parnell Shoping centre, on Henry Street.

    It is Cafe Guanabara I think. They are licenced and have outside tables at the back for schmokers.

    Howards Way don't offer beans, mushroom or fried tomato. That's disgraceful. How dare they meddle with the sacrosanct components of a fry.

    I'm dissappointed in this thread. Very very much so.

    None of you have been to Violets? Noone?

    On Dorset Street, towards the Drumcondra end. I save it for my "mother of god" hangovers, it's a divine experience. You should all be ashamed of yourselves.

    Truth be told though, I've never been able to order the big big fry up... From what I remember, it's a burger with bun, pork chops, sausages, beans, mushrooms, rashers, puddings, chips and toast. Oh, and tea or coffee. Though with a meal like that, it has to be tea.

    Don't go near the place if there's a match in Croke park though...

    Ha I was just about to ask for a place near drumcondra. I might get a feed when I'm there up next week visiting a friend. Where is it in relation to Quinns pub?

    Also would anyone know of a good fry in Carlow? I haven't chanced upon a good one yet.

    Had the best fry-up of my life there recently and it was at the Radisson (just down the road from Burdock's in Christchurch if heading for St George's St).

    It was very expensive as it is a buffet (€17) but worth every damn penny.

    They have everything that you could want: Fresh croissants (chocolate also), roast potatoes, meaty sausages, crispy bacon, beans, scrambled eggs, fried eggs (etc) waffles, pancakes, smoked salmon, cereals, yogurts: the list is endless.

    Will definitely return.

    had a fry Der recently in a place called newsroom in blackrock........its defo worth a try!!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 118 ✭✭HenryChinaski


    Not lived in Dublin for a few years so I'm not 100% percent sure if I'm getting the name right but I think it's Hobart's in Ranelagh that is top notch. Used always head up there on a hangover.

    Where in Blackrock is it? Last one I had there was this: http://www.rashersandeggs.com/viewsinglereview.php?reviewid=61

    Wasn't too impressed (but it was a while back). Never heard of newsroom.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,039 ✭✭✭jpfahy


    It's Newscafe actually, Temple Rd

    There used to be a wee place, when I say wee I mean wee, in Rathgar the road leading down to Harolds X, It could hold 8 people, sign outside used to say best Breakfast in Dublin, 2 mates and I thought thats a big boast on our way to the usual Howards Saturday Soakage, we went every saturday for about 2 years after that till it closed, We would walk in and the ole dear would nod and ready 3 large with chips. They Closed at 2 and we would weigh in about 10 too, they'd leave us scoffin away and tell us to help ourselves to more tea and toast while they'd nip outside for the Shmoke. Best Fry ever!!

    I posted this in another thread so apologies if you've read already. Ikea does a damn fine breakfast from 10 -11 Mon- Sat and 11 - 12 on Sunday.
    You can have a small 6 item breakfast for €1.95 -- yes that's right €1.95. That includes one sausage, one rasher, one hash brown, scrambled eggs, tomato and beans.
    A regular breakfast is slightly heartier with nine items -- two sausages, two rashers, two hash browns, scrambled eggs, tomato and beans. All for €2.25 -- again you're reading it right €2.25. They also do a kids brekkie for 95 cent where you can pick three items.
    The sausages are very tasty and the rashers are nice and meaty. The hash browns are lovely and crisp and the beans are fine too. Scrambled eggs are done well. The tomato, however, suffers from what a lot of cafs tend to do -- undercook it. A cooked tomato should be softer and not resemble something you'd put in a salad.
    The other down side is if you're a fried egg fan -- you're out of luck here as they only offer scrambled.
    Also, the breakfast is set you can't choose one sausage, two rashers, no beans etc... you have a choice of small or regular.
    Still, it's the best value breakfast in the country - never mind Dublin.

    Del Rio's across the road from the Abbey Theatre, get the big breakfast. 2 sausages, 2 rashers, 2 eggs, 4 white pudding, beans/mushrooms, toast and tea/coffee all for under a tenner. When me and my mates go in that's what we usually order and they throw in a plate of chips aswell...


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,553 ✭✭✭murphyebass


    Ok my 2 cents are. For very good breakfast presented to you nicely in a nice setting full Irish in The Twelth Lock in Castleknock is great. €10 euro so not the cheapest but you can get a pint too as it a pub!

    Or a cheap sloppy fry Dunnes cafe in blanch centre is perfect. Think I paid just over a tenner for 2 frys last time I was there. Tis item based but incredibly cheap. No beer there though and not the must wonderful of settings

    Lastly option 1 is an all day breakfast!! Excellent.

    Personally I'd rather pay a tenner for something good than pay 6 euro for slop which I find is normally the case with cheaper options. Take Dunnes I mentioned it's slop but cheap. Depends on your frame of mind imo.


  • Registered Users Posts: 485 ✭✭Lombardo86


    Hobarts in Ranelagh is good.

    Plenty of options with the full breakfast in at 9.95 and a slighly different version at 8.95. Sausages very tasty, plenty of toast and a big jug of tea. If i had to make a complaint it would be that there was too much fat on the bacon but thats a very minor complaint.

    Would recommend the place ive been a few times. Gets quite busy on the weekends.

    Dont get me wrong, I understand you need to pay for quality. Im just trying to think that in Scotland, which has amazing fry ups too, I wouldnt pay anywhere near that.

    If in a pub having a pint and a fry-up, it would cost about 15euros! If there were 4 of you having a fry and a pint each, the bill would be 60 euros plus a tip! Thats incredible. 4 cans from the off-licence and you could then buy the most amazing meats etc from the butcher and make it yourself for a lot less! You could even afford to pay for someone to do the dishes!

    Anywhere in Dublin that does a good mixed grill? The Millhouse in Stillorgan used to do an excellent mixed grill but I have not come across too many more in recent times.

    the place on georges st where Havana is now was a bit of a kip but back in my alcoholic hayday it kept me going for the day after pulling an all nighter.


  • Registered Users Posts: 952 ✭✭✭shangri la


    Best option in drumcondra/whitehall?


  • Registered Users Posts: 38 coltrain


    kennedys in Fairview is second to none imo, bookies right next door too :)

    Born and raised in Galway and lived their all my life until this past five months and have to say I'm missing Homeplate but have to report that had a fry-up in a cafe called Capachino Cafe in Temple Bar today and it was excellent.

    There's a smashing little cafe beside St.Michaels Hospital in Dún Laoghaire, do a fryup for 7.95 last time I was there, their coffee is lovely too.

    21/25
