Is there a nicer way to spoil yourself than with a leisurely stroll followed by a lazy brunch?
As if Sunday’s Well, with its handsome homes and city views, wasn’t already an attractive route to take on a weekend ramble, it’s also home to one of the best neighbourhood cafés in the city.
Vikki’s is a buzzy café and wine bar in a building that used to be the old post office.
It’s the kind of place where lingering over a good coffee is expected of you. In fact, they serve brunch all day so there’s no need to drag yourself out of bed until you’re hungry.
And if you are hungry, you’re in the right place.
But first; coffee. Vikki’s serve freshly roasted Drury’s so you can expect great things from your double macchiato.
You’ll be wanting a mimosa as well of course because, why not?
If you like your eggs scrambled, order them with Gubbeen cheese on Arbutus sourdough. Fans of poached might enjoy them alongside Jack McCarthy’s white pudding and a spiced apple chutney.
Try the grilled homemade cheddar cornbread with smashed avocado, chilli jam and crispy bacon (don’t forget to Instagram it first).
There’s plenty for vegans to choose from too, from the oat milk porridge topped with caramelised banana, cinnamon and crunchy pecans, to the warm Syrian flatbread with spiced aubergine and chickpeas, house ras el hanout hummus, coriander and pomegranate seeds.
Carnivores can add a sizzling serving of chorizo for an extra €3.
Meanwhile, veggies will go wild for the utterly decadent creamy mushrooms with Gruyere, parmesan and hazlenuts on Arbutus brioche.
You can even order rustic roasties with parmesan and rosemary as a side with brunch, which proves that this is our kind of place.
Afterwards we recommend sharing the French toast and if the weather is good, there’s a gorgeous garden terrace for al fresco dining.
Later in the day, Vikki’s does a roaring trade in soups, homemade sausage rolls and hefty toasties. In the evening, it’s a brilliant spot for a casual bite and some excellent wine by the glass or bottle – especially if you don’t like to faff around with bookings and reservations.
Nab a cosy table, order some nibbles, a veggie mezze or a cheese or meat board to share, then indulge in a few light crispy slices of oven-fresh pizza or a bowl of pasta.
By the time you leave you’ll be checking out property in the area.
