Hidden away at the back of the top floor in House of Fraser in Dundrum is Zest Cafe. Its actually a really lovely space, with one of Dundrum’s best kept secrets in that terrace. If its a sunny day, its a lovely spot for lunch with a glass of wine.
Back to breakfast, we were early to Dundrum on Sunday morning. We walked down, as we had left the car in Balally Luas park & ride the evening before. Zest was busy enough when we arrived, but no queue thankfully.
The breakfast menu is nice, The Works is the full thing, sausages, bacon and so on. There’s nice options like the warm salad with black pudding and a poached egg too. It’s quite a typical breakfast / brunch menu – porridge, French toast etc. You can also have scones, pastries, croissants if you’re not after a cooked breakfast. There’s a really good ‘mini breakfast’ too which is a sausage, rasher and egg with toast. We were both hungry and I was a little hungover (I’m blaming Kate from Kate’s Kabin for that!!) so we ordered 2 of ‘The Works’. Because it was before 11am we were able to include tea or coffee into the already very reasonable €8.40 price. Breakfast arrived, sausages, rashers, mushrooms, black and white pudding, a fried egg, sourdough toast and a tomato relish…
The only small complaint I have is that it always seems to take a long time for the food to arrive. I know they are cooking it all to order but still, a few minutes quicker to get the food would help. However in the realm of how good the food is, the value and the comfortable setting, its a small thing!
