It’s the new Greystones eaterie that can seemingly do no wrong, and so, when Sonny’s announced their new weekend breakfast menu, well…

Being halfway between the town crier and the village idiot, naturally, we had to go check it out this morning.

And what a morning. The sun was shining, the sea sparkling, and the Sunday papers were flappin’ in the wind, with a jeep parked inside the No Parking bollards, and the dynamic, go-get-‘im woman at the next table was reading Why Men Marry Bitches: A Woman’s Guide To Winning A Man’s Heart by Sherry Argov.

Does it get any more Greystones than this?

Unsurprisingly, the breakfast menu at Sonny’s proved to be both wholesome and imaginative, from Sonny’s Breakfast Patty (Egg-dipped brioch bap with crisp bacon, pork sausage patty, topped with fried egg, breakfast relish & crispy waffle fries) and the All-American Steak & Eggs (60z New York strip topped with 2 Sonny side eggs, breakfast relish & crisp waffle fries) to the Cheesy Mexican Omelette (Chorizo, sweetcorn, jalapenos, peppers, onion, topped with tomato salsa, coriander & sour cream guacamole), the Bacon & Egg Waffle (Crisp bacon on toasted waffle with 2 fried eggs), Boston Hash (Hash potato, smashed egg, pork sausage, black pudding, crisp bacon bits, onion, tomato, mushroom, breakfast relish & soft brioch sub roll) and Sonny’s Breakfast Salad (Crisp bacon, sausage, mushroom, tomato, black pudding, boiled egg & onion over assorted baby leaves with house dressing), there was something here for every stomach.

And every hangover. Including such hair-of-the-dog cocktails as Moscow Mule, Deco’s Daiquiris, Sour Puss and Pornstar Martini. Just like mother used to make. “We sold two of those already this morning,” our chirpy waitress tells us, with a wry smile, tempting us even more.

There are other options on the menu, of course, including waffles, pancakes and porridge, as well as a kid’s menu. It’s just €7 for the latter’s mini-breakfasts, pancakes, waffle, omelettes and sausage burgers whilst the main menu dishes are €11 and €12. Cocktails are €10, with the non-alcoholic option €6.

On this bright and breezy Sunday morning, we settled for two sobering coffees along with that dirty big steak and the bacon & egg waffle.

And, of course, they were both feckin’ delicious. Max was particularly fond of the steak-soaked slice of batch loaf.

Open for breakfast every Saturday and Sunday, from 9am to 12pm, you can find out more on the main Sonny’s website here, and book your table by calling .
