Capel Street is becoming one of Dublin’s most happening quarters – and its newest cafe, Brother Hubbard, is making its mark. The cafe, which is an exercise in chic minimalism – all cadet grey walls and plain wooden stools – is run by Garrett Fitzgerald and James Boland, with food freshly made on site.

The cafe and bakery recently celebrated its one-month anniversary by launching a lunch menu of sandwiches, soups and salads. The broccoli salad with garlic and chilli is to die for – as are the cinnamon and walnut scrolls, fresh scones and chocolate brownies, as well as virtuous wheat- and dairy-free seed slices. The coffee is Has Bean, provided by Dublin’s 3FE, and well worth the inevitable queues you’ll face at lunchtime. Catch them on Twitter @brother_hubbard, or at 153 Capel Street.

The design of Brother Hubbard has also been featured by We Heart – check it out!

(This is a bit of a cheeky one, because this piece was in Saturday’s magazine – but I couldn’t help but post all of the photographs the boys at Brother Hubbard sent me – check out those cinnamon and walnut rolls!
