Fuel up for St Patrick’s Day: Top spots for vegan brunch in Dublin

If you are visiting Dublin you need to understand two very simple things: pub culture and brunch culture. The first one is easy: you go to a pub, order a few pints of Guinness and have a laugh with your mates. But brunch culture in Dublin means business and there is an endless selection to choose from, so here is our ultimate guide to help you find the best vegan brunch in Dublin.

Groundstate Coffee

Groundstate Coffee is a stone’s throw away from the Guinness Storehouse. Their urban interiors, a well-thought-out mix of exposed brick, concrete, wood and lots of plants pair perfectly with the smell of single-origin coffee they roast in-house. We loved the tasty Smokey Tofu Sambo; the Sriracha Tofu Scramble sounds delicious too!

Two Pups Coffee

You can find specialty coffee and seasonal food at Two Pups Coffee which is also in the heart of The Liberties. They source from local businesses that follow ethical and sustainable practices.


SLICE is located in the neighbourhood of Stoneybatter, a quirky little fortress of cool, not too far from the city centre. We suggest you try their veganised pea and avocado rayu, veganised Hicks Pudding x Miso Mushrooms, or the soup of the day. And if you have a sweet tooth, they tend to have vegan treats too (such as the vegan Chocolate Orange Banana Bread pictured below).

Bibi’s Café

Bibi’s Café is a tiny spot in Portobello with a limited offer for vegan options, but it is still worth the trip. You will love their cute interiors and if you’re lucky enough to be greeted by the sun, you can enjoy a lovely coffee out on their terrace. Try their tartine organic sourdough with homemade jam, their soup of the day or ask for a veganised smashed avocado.

The Fumbally 

To complete our best vegan brunch hotspots in Dublin, visit The Fumbally, a neighbourhood café in The Liberties. 

Their space has a wide open kitchen, mismatched furniture and a fresh produce market, offering some of the best vegan brunch options. The atmosphere is cosy and the sense of community is in the air. Their menu is healthy and made up of mostly local ingredients. 

The Fumbally offers a vegetarian menu that can be easily veganised: try their lentils, salads, and focaccia sandwiches. However, their main star is the Tuscan beans - a plate of cannellini and borlotti beans on sourdough bread with fermented cabbage and vegan parmesan; unarguably the best in town! And their wine shelves and sourdough stand are just the perfect addition to take home so make sure not to leave empty-handed.

(The Fumbally is the only vegan eatery on our list which unfortunately appears to be closed on St Patrick’s Day; we kept it in as celebrations go on in the days leading up to St Patrick’s Day in Dublin.) 

If you’re planning to visit the atmospheric city of Dublin, good weather is not something the city can guarantee but good food… oh boy!
