    Before checking into the brand new Marker Hotel we had breakfast at The Restaurant @ Brown Thomas, a famous department store in Dublin. Brown Thomas is owned by Galen Weston, a Canadian Retail Tycoon.

    The Restaurant is managed by Domini and Peaches Kemp and located on the third floor. The interior is contemporary.

    When we arrived there was quite a buzz. Fortunately we didn't have to wait for a seat and were brought immediately to our table.

    Having informed ourselves online about the menu, we already knew what we were going to order.

    We had the Toffee-Nut-Latte, a cappuccino, two orange juice, one French Toast with bacon and maple syrup, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, the raw fruit salad and two slices of toasted sourdough bread with butter and jam.

    We were told by our waitress that we had ordered quite a lot, so she pushed our and the neighboring empty table together to make more space. I didn't appreciate the comment. More space was definitely needed. The tables were on the smaller side.

    The meal was very enjoyable and the quality high. I only wished my salmon portion would have been slightly larger.

    One slice more would have been nice. The eggs and chive were plenty. Maybe I was spoiled from the breakfast at Wilde's a week earlier, where I had a similar dish.

    The French Toast was yummy too. The fruit salad was fresh and ideal to share, because the portion was large. The bread and jam was of high quality too.

    Even though the staff was very busy, they were attentive and quick to respond.

    The bill came in at slightly under 50 Euro (ca. 66 USD).

    We spent around an hour at the Restaurant and were ready to walk to the Docklands for our stay at the Marker.

    Of course we are going to return.

    Would we recommend this venue to a friend? YES!
    Would we return to this venue? YES!

    Here a few photos we have taken from our visit:
