I couldn't remember if it's been mentioned before, but the Gryphon d'or tearoom on Monkland in NDG is now serving breakfast, on Sundays only, 9 am - 3 pm.
I went today with two companions and everyone found it delicious... with my husband's dish (the poached egg in cheese-Guinness sauce) becoming an instant favourite.
Some of their offerings include:
- 2 eggs any way
- omelette with roasted veggies and cheese
- breakfast scone-wich (fried egg, bacon, cheese, roasted veggies on a scone)
- eggs benedict meets Welsh rarebit - poached egg w/cheddar-Guinness sauce
- French toast w/challah
All dishes came with a delectable spiced potato purée, a small salad, a homemade sausage patty, a small apple crumble (my guess is the dessert may vary weekly), plus unlimited coffee, tea and orange juice. Most dishes come with a scone, and some with bacon.
I'm delighted to see one of my favourite local haunts adding a new meal to their repertoire… and hope perhaps at some point they'll start offering it on Saturdays as well!
