We all have those days when we're out and around with a grumbling stomach, but our wallet is feeling quiiiiiiiite thin.
Fortunately, Dublin offers ample amount of spots to pop in for a quick snack (or full-on meal) on the cheap. So whether you fancy a coffee and warm scone, or a wholesome afternoon feed, you'll find something deliciously affordable.
Here's where to check out...
1. Medley Fleet Street
This new spot behind the Westin Hotel is offering an incredible Monday morning breakfast deal. Choose any dish on their breakfast menu, a hot drink and a pastry for just €7.50.
I don't know how you could resist...
2. KC Peaches
With locations on Pearse Street, St. Stephen's Green, Nassau Street and Dame Street, you can get your morning coffee and pastry fix nearly anywhere on the cheap.
It's just €4 for the tea or coffee and breakfast pastry combination.
Also, don't forget their €6 medium hot food box after 6pm deal. It's perfect for those of you who are absolutely starved after work.
Thank yoooou, KC Peaches.
Have you ever walked past the queue on Aungier Street in the evenings? Govindas, a purely vegetarian spot, gives out €3 boxes of tasty, nutritious feed after 6.
It's wholesome, delicious and an absolute steal.
4. Dublin Barista School
It's 2pm, and you need that kick in your step to make it through the afternoon. That first cup of morning coffee has faded, but you don't want to splurge on another 3 or 4 quid.
That's when Dublin Barista School's coffee happy hour comes in handy. Stop in from 2-4pm daily for a €2 cup of ANY coffee.
Nicest afternoon pick-me-up I've had.
5. Alchemy Juice
If you've not tried an Alchemy matcha latte, here's your chance. They do a €5.50 deal, where you pair a delicious matcha with a spirulina treat.
What's that, you ask? A lovely, semi-sweet ball of goodness, packed with anti-oxidants and nutrients.
Believe me – the two are a nice pair.
6. Gourmet Burger Kitchen
For more of a feed, check out this spot, and take advantage of their small bite and burger deal.
It runs Monday-Thursday, and you choose from three different starters and three main attractions. This means you could pair a bowl of garlic mushrooms with a juicy grilled chicken burger – all for just €9.95.
This €5.50 lunch deal will get you three of the freshest, healthiest salads in Dublin. Choose from Cornucopia's wide selection, and they'll pack it into a takeaway or load up a plate.
We're not talking flimsy lettuce salads either – they'll fill ye up with hearty beans, rice, veg, and proteins.
Hunger conquered, wallet full.
8. Donnybrook Fair
This modern cafe and grocery has every pick-me-up you could ask for. From fruit smoothies, to flat whites, to freshly baked goods, it's a nice place to pop in and cure that rumbling stomach.
The scones are nearly always warm, there are loads of options to choose from, and they're only 2 for €2.
Indulge, why don't ya.
