Irish breakfast at that place on Smith St...

I can't remember the name, it used to be called Smithwick's, and now it's Slainte I think? Has anyone had their irish breakfast? We are thinking of doing that this weekend...

  1. I don't know about the breakfast specifically, but I think the name is Ceol now.

    1. Yes, that's what I meant, Slainte is in manhattan...not talking about a breakfast special, talking about irish breakfast, which is a thing to be reckoned with! In any case, I will try it out and post about it...

      1. Chip Shop on Atlantic does a full English breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays that I'm a big fan of.
        Please let us know if Ceol's is worthwhile!

        1. I've tried the Irish breakfast, and the bacon is "real" thick slab Irish bacon. Personally, I prefer "American" bacon with my B'fast, but others I know who like their bacon meaty said that Ceol's is quite good. Otherwise, fairly basic. They used to serve unlimited drinks with their brunch for $15 but I think people started to take advantage and they stopped:(

          1. I was just there this weekend-- it's a serious Irish breakfast (slab Irish bacon, sausage, two kinds of pudding-- which were really good, eggs, mushrooms, roasted tomato) and I think it was $9. Only downside is no beverage is included like most places do for a brunch special, and the coffee seemed weirdly expensive (just like Ireland, actually). The Irish soda bread that's served to the table is also not great, although I still managed to have a couple of pieces. But it's definitely a hearty, and tasty, brunch.
