Brunch and DIY Irish Coffee Bar at Lansdowne Pub (Boston, MA)

Lansdowne Pub in Fenway started Irish Brunch Banger on September 17, which was Halway to St. Patrick's Day. I didn't know that was a thing, but why not - any excuse to drink Jameson and Guinness.

Lansdowne Pub is an Irish pub just steps away from Fenway stadium that offers live music and open mic nights. As a bar, live music spot, and a place to go before and after a Red Sox game, Lansdowne is quite popular, but this is the first time I'm checking out the food, which was surprisingly good.

We had a number of classic brunch dishes like the Sausage & Eggs. The grilled housemade chicken and maple sausage had a nice flavor and a touch of sweetness - I was a fan.

There were also some atypical items on the regular menu, like the Duck confit grilled cheese. This was a hit at the table, with tender duck confit on grilled bread. The duck is the star rather than the cheese, though.

My favorite item was probably the Apple Crumble Pancakes (buttermilk pancakes, sauteed apples, oatmeal cinnamon streusel, $10)

Usually I'm more of a waffle or french toast girl, and I was never a huge fan of apples either, but I couldn't s top eating this apple crumble pancakes! The pancakes themselves were nice and fluffy, and I loved the combination with the cinnamon streusel and the soft, slightly caramelized apples.

Other brunch dishes we tried was the Crab Cake Benedict ($13)

Prime Rib Hash (prime rib, onions, peppers, potatoes, garlic, gravy, fried eggs, $16)

French Toast (caramelized bananas, caramel sauce, $11)

There are a few Jameson coffee cocktails. The most popular is the Lansdowne Ice with Jameson Caskmates, Kahlua, cold brew ice coffee and an Irish cream float. For something less sweet, you can go with the Coldbrew and Caskmates - just straight up Jameson Caskmates and cold brew coffee.

Lansdowne will also have a DIY Irish Coffee bar, where you can put whatever coffee and toppings you may want in your Irish coffee. I do wish they have freshly whipped cream, though, instead of the spray can version.
