It's disgracefully damp and dreary out there; few things will cheer us up but food never fails.

You might not make it out for a walk this evening but you know that cafés and restaurants will always be a cosy spot to take shelter.

Here are seven dishes that are worth trekking through the wind and rain for:

1. Croque Madame - Groundstate Coffee

Groundstate has been getting rave reviews left right and centre.

This delectable brunch sambo is made from Bread Nation sourdough, Higgins thick cut ham, Dijon mustard, loaded with a creamy parmesan & Irish white cheddar béchamel, and topped with an egg and a side of kimchi.

Yes pls.

2. Bao Bun - Shelbourne Social

We checked out Shelbourne Social this week and as much as we wanted to hate it we ended up kind of loving it.

This is a lemon sole, herbs and sriracha mayonnaise in a caramelised bao bun.

3. Espresso Martini On Tap - Proof Pizza

Need we say any more about this brand new fountain of life?

4. Jambon With Black Pudding Sausage - The Cupcake Bloke

This is a jambon taken to the next level.

Made from black pudding and sausage, this is sure to blow your socks off.

5. Taster Menu - Host

With some of the freshest and tastiest pasta around, this lil foodie cocoon must be tried.

Top quality stuff.

6. Peanut Butter Brownies - Hopsack

Not an ounce of flour - not even a sign of spelt!

The Hopsack is a favourite amongst Lovin Dublin staff and their brownies are a force to be reckoned with.  Made with black beans, this gives them a unique and original flavour and texture.

7. Seafood Chowder - Octopussy

The best place to eat seafood is by the sea; you know your food hasn't travelled far to be on your plate.

Octopussy in Howth serves some of the best seafood chowder we've ever tucked into.

Feeling hungry?

Us too.
