Our hunt for new places to get our brunch fix is a never-ending crusade filled with poached eggs, more mimosas then we should probably be drinking and plate after plate after plate of bacon. Crispy, plz.
Our latest love is a very pretty conservatory cafe in Beggars Bush, D4, that kinda reminds me of my granny's greenhouse in a lovely, light-filled and green-fern way.
Press Cafe is an independent cafe located in the historical grounds of the National Print Museum, making it the ideal spot for a bite to eat followed by a wander around the museum.
There's actually a pretty great exhibition on there at the moment of Irish record covers from 1955-2017 if you want your weekly culture dose.
As for the cafe itself? Stroll through an archway for rustic, homemade weekend brunch.
The decor is modern and fresh - and there's a terrace...
The food is lovingly homemade and portions are just what you need - not tiny and not so huuuge you're left busting at the seams feeling wasteful for not finishing everything.
Try the Press Signature, toasted soda farls with crushed avocado and chorizo topped with two poached eggs (option to substitute chorizo for smoked salmon).
Or the crispy Belgian waffle with bacon...
You can get this savoury beaut with sausages instead!
How about some banana bread French toast? <3
O. M. G. Heaven is real people, and it exists in this dish
Their poached egg Middle-Eastern salad is YUM
Feta, chilli, pomegranate, mint and rocket salad drizzled with balsamic and poached eggs is the perfect light brunch option...
This seems to be a fairly local spot for brunching, but this off-the-beaten-track vibe means you should have no problems getting a seat.
Coffee is by popular roasters Cloud Picker, and the reviews online speak for themselves.
"Best Irish breakfast in Dublin."
"Could be better signposted but worth the effort to find! Bright colourful space with friendly staff."
"If you are looking for a quiet and cosy place to drink a nice cappuccino or eat a delicious brunch, The Press is the right place for you."
Well worth a stroll down to today, plus it's just a few minutes walk from Grand Canal Dart station. Enjoy your latest stop on the brunch train xox
