I am about to add the Dublin Star to my Best of Bucks Top 5 Bunches. Donna and I took the surprisingly short drive up to Dublin for Sunday Brunch on recommendations by poker buddy Fritz and business colleague Chris. I think it makes it into the Top 5 because it is the most family friendly brunch I have eaten. It was all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet for $9.95 ($6.95 for kids). The buffet included lots of kid friendly buffet items including cereal, pastries, pancakes, french toast, waffles, bacon, scrapple, sausages, grits, fruit salad and made-to-order omelets. For an additional $2.95 you can add on the regular salad bar which included three different soups, multiple salad options for you to build your own salad with any of the five different dressings. Donna and I didn’t go for the add-on because the breakfast items were satisfying enough. Tea and coffee is included but the diner does not sell alcohol. So kid friendly food and portions large enough for the adults.
The spacious diner had lots of booths and tables with room for different family sizes. Despite the noontime crowd the diner was relatively quiet even with multiple families having little kids dining with them. So a family friendly environment.
Although all the breakfast buffet items were all tasty and plentiful, the highlight for both Donna and I were the made-to-order omelets and fruit salad. Timmy is the regular omelet cook and he offers onions, mushrooms, sausage, peppers, ham, broccoli, bacon, tomatoes and four different cheeses. The combination of these multiple items make almost endless possibilities for your own omelet. My finished sauagage ham and Swiss cheese omelet was light and fluffy with a nice contrast of savory ham and sausage with sweet Swiss cheese. I coupled mine with the fresh fruit salad that included pineapple, strawberries, two types of melon and grapes. The grapes were so fresh they almost popped when you bit into them. Although I am calling it a fruit salad there was no dressing just the natural fruit flavours coming through.
All in all Dublin Star offers a family friendly brunch. Please click on the comment link below to suggest other brunch location or share your experiences.
