Recommended by the Mayor

Luberto's SignWebMD Account Exec and Dublin Mayor-in-waiting Chris recommended that we try Luberto’s Trattoria after reading the bunch post about the Dublin Star Diner. So when Donna and I had to get our driving license photos re-done today in Dublin, we decided to try it.

 Luberto's Wood Burning Pizza OvenThe first thing you notice walking into the modern spacious dinning room is the Wood-Burning Oven located in the center of the room. I don’t think I have ever had Pizza from a wood-burning oven so I knew what I was going to have. 

As we were going over the menu, the waitress brought over some very nice Bruschetta as an amuse bouche. The nicely seasoned Tomatoes, Garlic, Basil and Olive oil.  I usually put some red onion in my version but they didn’t. The lightly toasted bread added some nice texture to the tomato mixture. Nice surprise for lunch. Wood-burning Pizza from Luberto's

The menu offers several speciality pizzas but I went for the pizza with Sausage, Mushroom and Red Onions. When it arrived the aroma of the sausage and onion was very appetizing.  I think the best part of the pizza from the wood oven is the crisp and thin crust. This one did not disappoint. The Homemade Pizza Sauce was covered by fresh Mozzarela and then the sausage, mushroom and red onions. The Red Onions were lightly carmelized leaving them sweet with a little crunch. The Mushrooms were like little sponges to the cheese and the sauce. The perfectly cooked Sausage slices were mildly spiced and very meaty. The combo of flavour and texture made for a great pizza in fact I added Lumberto’s to the Best of Bucks County – Pizza Top 5 list.

I hope to go back to Luburto’s with Chris to try the other Italian favourites and celebrate him becoming the Mayor. In the meantime readers, give the place a try.

Sunday Brunch in Dublin PA

May 3, 2009

I am about to add the Dublin Star to my Best of Bucks Top 5 Bunches.  Donna and I took the surprisingly sDublin Star Dinerhort 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.

Omelet Dublin Diner

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.
