The little brother of brunch virtuoso Holybelly.

Who’s it for? Brunch fiends with a healthy bank balance.

What should I order? The classic Eggs and Sides.

First came Holybelly, one of the city’s top brunch spots. Then came HB5, its little brother, just a few doors down. With enough space to seat 100, it’s much roomier than the original and light pours through the big glass frontage. A favourite with laptop-wielding freelancers, café offices don’t get much better than this.

Expect all the usual Holybelly classics, like Eggs and Sides (€13.50) – two fried eggs, The Beast’s maple syrup-infused bacon and two slices of golden grilled halloumi. The savoury pancake stack (€13.50) topped with fried eggs, bacon, bourbon butter and smothered in maple syrup. It’s high cholesterol heaven, perfectly paired with a Deck & Donohue Pale Ale (€5), brewed in Montreuil no less.

Don’t miss the sweet stack (€9) either: three pancakes topped with seasonal fruit, roasted nuts, whipped cream and maple syrup. Prices are on the higher side, but this is the ideal spot for a treat.
