We all want to treat ourselves to some food. Whether it is meeting up with mates or you feel like you should treat yo’ self for lunch. This list has got you covered. 


1. Cracked Nut, Camden Street.

This place is amazing. They have a great brunch menu. I ordered the breakfast burrito, which was super filling. I would also recommend the avocado on toast, for all you Instagramers out there.


2. Alfie’s, South William Street.

Alfie’s serves their €10 lunch box meal, which is available most days. You can chose 3 sides to make up your lunch box. It’s a great deal and you can also have it for dinner Sunday to Wednesday. They also serve cheeky €5 cocktails, which are divine.


3. Five Guys, Dundrum Town Centre & Georges Street.

You have to try Five Guys at least once while in college. Their burgers are very succulent and not dry at all! The portions of chips are massive (even the small portion). For bevvys, you can get refills for soft drinks or you can try one of their fantastic milkshakes. I tried the peanut butter milkshake and it blew me away.


Farmer Browns, Rathmines Road Lower.

You can get a soup, sandwich and a coffee of your choice for €10. There is a nice selection of warm sandwiches to choose from. You get a really nice portion of soup (not in a tiny cup like a lot of places).


5. McMahons of Botanic Avenue, Glasnevin.

A wide selection of sandwiches to offer and decent coffee, what more could you want? This place if definitely worth a visit. I got a healthy veggie wrap to make up for the amount of spicebags I consume.
