A once quiet thoroughfare downtown, Bree Street now has so many eateries that it is a sort of restaurant row. The feeding starts with breakfast and goes through lunch, afternoon snacks, drinks, and dinner at places like Bacon on Bree, Folk Coffee, the Culture Cheese Club, Café Frank (a must for breakfast or lunch), Clarke’s Bar and Dining Room (very popular for weekend brunches), Chef’s Warehouse and Canteen (where it is essential to arrive early because the kitchen closes at around 8pm), and the always packed (especially for drinks) La Parada. Just off Bree Street are many others, such as the Hungry Herbivore and the House of Machines, whose customers often overflow onto the narrow sidestreet.
