Union Café, Mount Merrion
Union Café is located at the heart of Mount Merrion. This lively and family friendly café opens early and closes late so there is plenty of time to visit and enjoy their honest to goodness food made with the best Irish produce.
The bright and roomy design of Union Café offers a welcoming space that invites you to stay and relax no matter if you are an early bird on the look out for a healthy and hearty breakfast, a busy bee in need of a mid-week lunch or a foodie family ready to bond over a weekend brunch.
When the sun comes down, Union Café stays up and the menu turns into a contemporary blend of international cuisines that makes up for a dashing dinner. Their wine and cocktail offer complements the experience and distinguish this spot over your usual friendly neighborhood café.
Breakfast classics such as eggs Benedict and the well-known and loved Irish breakfast roll mix with lighter options such as their Greek yogurt parfait made with organic granola, nut crumble and artisan fruit compotes. Their selection of freshly baked morning goods changes seasonally and features all the classic goodies that any good café must have: scones, croissants, danishes, muffins and more. They even have a set kid’s breakfast menu created to please the little ones.
Brunchers will be spoiled for choice as the café’s menu expands on the weekend to make room for brioche French toast, Dundrum Bay crab salad, slow roasted free range chicken and tempting burgers and sandwiches.
Union Café’s eclectic and fulfilling range of lunch options includes choices to please all palates. Meat and chicken lovers will enjoy their rotisserie chickens, gourmet beef burgers, BBQ brisket and more; their organic fish pie and the crab salad will charm seafood lovers, and vegetarians and omnivores alike will be tempted by their three cheese ravioli with butternut squash and wilted spinach.
At dinner time, the menu gets more sophisticated and a selection of small dishes such as pan fried scallops, goats cheese mousse and foie gras parfait are followed by the main act: steak and sea bass come to the table, along with the burger, the ravioli and their signature rotisserie chicken.
Again, the youngest diners will be thrilled with a delightful kid’s menu designed specially to their taste.
Monday to Thursday between 5:00 and 6:30pm, the café offers a fabulous early bird menu including a main and a glass of wine or non-alcoholic option at €17.00.
