The Monday morning stroll into town foremost on my mind was breakfast. No food, no work – that’s just how I roll! And so to Angel Park on Lower Mount Street, a lovely deli and diner that channels a Yankee menu with fresh local produce. I’ve tasted most of their take out lunch goodies – doorstep sandwiches, chilli beef on brown rice and myriad colourful salads. Not to mention their yummy cakes! Angel Park is an office worker’s haunt and I often joined the 1 o’clock rush in my suit days.
Today I ventured downstairs to the diner for the first time ever. What a smart place. Leather banquettes along the walls & clever use of mirrors make the most of the cosy space. It’s a nice place to start the day with 1950’s style adverts and 1960’s lamps adding up to a sophisticated atmosphere, with a ceiling fan the focal point. I was glad to note that Angel Park’s tight ship also extends to the diner as my waitress brought me a pot of tea and the Irish Times as I kicked back and studied the breakfast menu.
From 7.30am to 11pm the offerings include – granola with yoghurt, honey & fruit, goats cheese omelette, full Irish breakfast, eggs Benedict and pancakes with maple syrup & bacon. I went for porridge & honey with a side order of banana, which turned out to be a generous bowl of milky oats cooked to perfection. Hearty indeed. Angel Park is a great place to enjoy a leisurely petit dejeuner. It has wi-fi and peace to do a bit of AM business. Breakfast is also available to take out, for those in a hurry!
