Brunch is the most important weekend ritual of them all.

It is a time of relaxation, splurging and gorging.

We thought it was time to bring you a list of brunch dishes in Dublin that you just HAVE to try. 

1. Meet Me In The Morning – Eggs And Yoghurt

Served with green veg and paprika oil – these are a strong contender for the best eggs in Dublin

2. BEAR – Mushrooms On Toast

But not just any mushrooms. These are melt-in-your-mouth, miso-butter-fried chestnut mushrooms.

BEAR serve 'em up on sourdough with avo and rocket. I usually lash on an egg or a side of bacon for the craic too. 

3. The House –  Fish Cake Benedict

With crispy Connemara ham, chilli jam, watercress and creamy hollandaise sauce. 

It has been dubbed "the best brunch on the Northside".

4. Eathos – Buckwheat Pancakes

€9.50 for these fluffy beauts and they're served with ricotta, blueberries, coconut yogurt, cacao nibs and agave syrup.

Eathos, you dream.

5. Bow Lane – Eggs On Greens

With grains, freekah, tomatoes, poached eggs and hollandaise for €10. Throw in an espresso martini too – they are amaze. 

So you may feel guilty for brunchin', but not too guilty 'cos, well, vegetables. 

6. 3FE – Eggs Bene

Although these aren't always on the menu, they are permanently lodged in my top 5 favourite brunches of all time.

The ham hock is shredded to perfection, the poached-ness of the eggs is phenomenal, the sauce is perfectly bitter yet savoury and, of course, all washed down with a cup of gorge coffee. It just doesn't get better than that. 

7. Sophie's – French Toast

Drenched in maple syrup and fresh berries for €9.95. 

Is there a better way to start the late-afternoon than looking at stunning views of Dublin city?

8. Herbstreet – Full Irish

Grilled McCarren bacon, sausage, creamy scrambled eggs, black pudding, corned beef hash, roast tomato, baked beans and multiseed spelt bread for €14.

Steep enough for a full Irish, but you genuinely won't need to eat for the rest of the day.

9. Union Café – Brisket Sambo

This lil gem over in Mount Merrion serves some serious sandwhich combinations.

The beef brisket on sourdough with caramelised onion, cheese and horseradish mayo is a sure winner.

10. Angelina's – Crab Cakes Benedict

Another fish cake benedict, but this one is HUNREAL. €14 for golden crab cakes with pink grapefruit, avo and chilli kale.

It has to be devoured to be believed.

11. The Exchequer – Sunday Roast For Four

Has to be ordered in advance but at €50 including a bottle of wine, this is as finely as you can possibly eat on a Sunday.

12. De Selby's – Cote de Boeuf 

De Selby's do two for one on brunch cocktails. That in itself is a great reason to go.

But this juicy Cote de Boeuf will floor you, in a good way.

13. Taco Taco – Chicken and Waffles

The perfect place for a boozy brunch. 

This chicken and waffle stack with sweet potatoes will put you into a weekend-long food coma. 

14. Bang Bang – Brunch Burger

Eggs. Cheese. Bacon. Relish. YUM.

This gorge little caf makes Phibsborough my favourite place ever.

15. The Butcher Grill – Baby Back BBQ Ribs 

You'll probably want a clear enough head, because dealing with the mess of eating ribs with a hangover is not advised but these are absolutely divine.

16. The Bakehouse – Salmon and Scrambled Eggs

That Liffey view you get from The Bakehouse is unbeatable. And the food is pretty feckin' class to match.

17. Cleaver East – Red Velvet Pancakes

Last but not least. These bad boys come with streaky bacon and maple syrup.

And you will dream about them forever.
