Enjoyed a great brunch at Brother Hubbard on Sunday. Plenty of choice on the menu for all three in our group and excellent service. We also felt like we were given plenty of time at our table and didn't feel rushed at all... really positive experience!

No simple « bacon and eggs », only complicated meals with a lot of ingredients that usually don’t please everyone

At weekends when we are so busy we are unable to prepare dishes that are not listed on our menu (this would be the case for most restaurants) - otherwise it would impact on the speed of service for everyone. We've a large and varied menu and we feel we are so busy because of the interesting menu we provide. Thanks for visiting.

After ordering a starter, we waited 45-50 minutes for our main course. I appreciate the restaurant was fairly busy, but this waiting time is unacceptable.

Love the Middle Eastern influences on the menu and the chilli on the meaty mezze, that was a fiery surprise! Oh and the chai latte was the bomb, be nice if they can do a hot version for the weather in Dublin 😁 I will be back!

Lovely food, very different to the usual brunch options. Staff were particularly helpful and friendly. The seating is well spaced out with lovely ambience. We had about two hours at the table before we wrapped up.

Food was delicious as usual. Service was welcoming and friendly as ever. There was a bit of a delay in getting our food but I assume there was some small hiccough in the kitchen. It certainly wouldn't discourage me from going back.

The quality of the food was really good - however the portion sizes are TINY. I ordered the granola which was 8.50. It came in a tiny glass sized dish that was still only about half full. I was still absolutely starving after this which was a big disappointment.
We ordered a few coffees, twice and it took a long time for the coffees to come. Our table was outside towards the end so I think we just got forgotten about a little where we were so fair enough.
But I wouldn't be rushing back if I was hungry.
