Sunday Brunch has become one of the must have meals of the week and when I’m not togging out in some far flung gaa hotbed in Mayo I try to visit one of Galway’s many amazing brunch venues. Here are a few of my favourites based on nothing but personal opinion;
Caprice – just over two years old now this is one of my favourite places in Galway. The décor is stunning, the staff friendly and the menu delicious. They host a number of themed evenings during the year which are well worth checking out.
When you say brunch you invariably mean Dela, drive through town on a Sunday morning and the queues outside it’s door will attest to that. The interior is superb again, the staff are very welcoming and helpful and the food is sublime. My most recent visit saw an elderly lady stop and ask what I was eating as it looked so good. It was the “posh egg’s” a mouthwatering dish with scrambled eggs, chrizo and prawns. Absolutely devine.
This new kid on the block has to be included and not just because I work there. The interior is stunning it’s an Instagram dream. Hyde is famous for it’s enormous Gin selection but it’s quickly become a very popular brunch venue, the flower wall and Glasshouse are particularly popular areas to sit and enjoy this scrumptious menu.
To be fair its ages since I’ve been here but from what I hear standards haven’t dropped a bit. The philosophy of this multi multi award winning restaurant is very simple, head chef Jessica sources fresh, organic produce from local suppliers to create daily menus bursting with flavor, texture and colour. All menus change on a daily basis dependent on what is fresh and in stock from local suppliers.
Another very popular venue with waiting times of up to an hour on a Sunday and it’s worth the wait. Located in the Spanish Arch this cosy little restaurant is full of nooks and crannies ideal for catch up’s on the previous nights shenanigans. An exquisite meun with a stylish twist on all your favourite’s awaits diners. I have to add the staff are excellent and understanding especially the lad that was able to tolerate my super fussy friends on Ladies Day.
Honourable mentions include, Coco Cafe in Salthill, especailly on a sunny day, Tribeton, 1520, The Corrib Tea Rooms.
