Three To Try: Irish Breakfasts for St. Patrick’s Day

March 16, 2017

It’s hard to miss the fact that today is St. Patrick’s Day, the day when we’re all a little Irish. The most appropriate way to start the day, then, is with an Irish breakfast, and here are three you can snag around town.

1. Fado Irish Pub – Fado offers a solid weekend brunch, one that we experienced last year when Easton invited us to explore their morning meal options. My favorite at Fado was the full Irish breakfast, complete with fried eggs, stewed mushrooms and tomatoes, soda bread, rashers (aka back bacon, or bacon pulled from the back of the pig and not the belly), real Irish bangers (sausages with a wonderful texture – my favorite), and white and black puddings (a type of blood sausage mixed with oats and spices).

2. Dempsey’s Food & Spirits – We’ve enjoyed our breakfasts at Dempsey’s (and I’m making a mental note that we need to go back again soon). Their Irish Breakfast 2.0 features bread pudding French toast with a Jameson salted caramel, plus sausage patties, potatoes, and eggs scrambled with Irish cheddar. They serve breakfast seven days a week!

3. Claddagh Irish Pub – Claddagh is one of many Irish-themed pubs around the city; the Columbus Claddagh location resides in the Brewery District. Their regular lunch/dinner menu features an all-day Irish breakfast with eggs, bangers, rashers of bacon, black and white pudding, sauteed mushrooms, and their house soda bread.
