Probably one of the most under-rated places to eat brunch in Dublin!
Brunch has become so popular in Dublin that it can often become a problem getting a table. Dillinger’s was literally out the door along with a couple of others like Whitefriar Grill and Bow Lane.
My twin sister and I wanted a place to bring our Mum for a nice brunch and where you’ve enough privacy to have good chats. As the weather has picked up – it seemed everyone and their mother (excuse the pun) was out for food.
It dawned on me that Mayfield was the perfect choice as it’s closer to home and a short distance from the city centre so the chances of getting a table was good.
On arrival we didn’t think the place was as busy but it’s very deceiving. The waitress took us through the main room and into another room. In each room the place was pretty lively but with an atmosphere that you could relax and talk. The decor is old fashioned but that’s what I liked about the place. It wasn’t a pretentious setting.
A Spanish lady served us, and from the moment we sat down she had water and menu’s on the table. We weren’t waiting too long for the food either and had adequate time for chats in between the brunch and dessert. There’s nothing more off-putting that being rushed between course.
Berry Proscecco – to start (partly to celebrate a belated Mother’s Day)
What We Had – The Brunch
Both my sister and I went for the Rancheros and the my mum chose the Mayfield Breakfast Hash. We also opted for a nice glass of berry prosecco to wash the brunch down with. We ordered a side of chunky fries for the table too.

The food was to a very high standard and all was pleased with the service. We’ll be paying Mayfield a visit again in the very near future.
