When last night’s indulgences are making this morning a headache, giant Irish breakfasts are a good way to come back to life. Rashers of bacon, sausages, fried eggs, black and white pudding—these are stick-to-your-ribs foods to settle you on a Sunday morning.

Hounds recommend the fry-up at Sonny’s Adams Village: “it’s tremendously popular with the Irish folks in the neighborhood. The ones who are actually from Ireland and want a taste of home,” says C. Hamster. “Plus the Village is the most Irish neighborhood around.”

The other board favorite is the Druid in Inman Square, where Small Plates says there’s an “[e]xcellent Irish breakfast that rivals any I’ve had in each of the 26 counties.” It is served Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and includes traditional Irish Galtee sausage links, with “lovely crispy fried spuds and really wonderful crispy sunny side up eggs and baked beans,” says mick_t.
