Browne’s Irish Market & Deli are serving their Irish Breakfasts on Saturdays from February 10 through to St Patrick’s Day,
On ordinary Saturdays the Irish Breakfast begins at 8:30am, and on St Patrick’s Day they will begin at 7am.
And what makes the breakfasts Irish? They’re cooked in a frying pan in North County Dublin and then flown supersonically to the middle of the US of A, where they are then served piping hot.
Well okay they’re not, but do they have to be? I didn’t travel by Concorde and I’m most certainly not piping hot, but I am Irish. Curiously though, you can’t have me for breakfast.
Browne’s Irish Breakfasts however are one of the great Kansas City Irish traditions, and they have been serving them for longer than things that have lasted a long time. There’s no better way to start a weekend. Unless you’re into role-playing and fur.
March 17 at Browne’s
On Saturday, March 17, Browne’s Irish Market is celebrating their 120th St Patrick’s Day. Authentic Irish Breakfast begins at 6:30am followed by traditional Irish lunch selections. (Shepherds Pie, Bangers & Mash, Corned Beef, Colcannon & Cabbage, Black & Tan Sandwiches, Irish Potato Soup and wee ones meals)
Live Irish music and free raffles all day. Afternoon activities will also include a bagpiper, moonwalk, children’s crafts… There is plenty of seating in the large heated tent, and two food lines so short waits and plenty of food for all.
Browne’s is very high in my estimation, not least because it is the only establishment to open up outside regular hours simply so I could buy tea. Other Irish places in Kansas City have unlocked their doors for me, but those were all for alcohol.
