Brunch is our favorite meal on a lazy Sunday when you can sleep in and get to a restaurant to have the best of breakfast and lunch with a smidge of alcohol disguised in a mimosa. Everything is big in Texas – sometimes brunch is the only meal you will need for the day! Here are some favorite places around town serving the best brunch in Dallas – be it Valentines, Mother’s day, Easter Sunday or any other weekend. If you are going for a holiday brunch, it is smarter to make sure you have a reservation, so you are not disappointed. As always we take the kids everywhere we go…
A Quick look at what is in this Post
10 Best Brunch in Dallas
La Duni has breakfast tacos, popovers, torta cubana, juevos rancheros galore.. great many expresso choices, it is the best place for Brunch! The La Duni at Fairview and Northpark are pretty popular so if you plan to go, get on their waitlist! Served 10:30am to 3:00pm
Café Brazil is another place I love either a late night stop or for a morning stop after biking around White Rock Lake. They have awesome gourmet grilled cheese, French toast, 3 egg omelets and all kinds of crepes. They have a few locations around town and some are Open late for those party people looking for some eggs after 2am.
On a sunny day you can sit on their red umbrella-ed patio listen to Frank Sinatra sipping on Lavazza coffee and enjoying some Croque Monsieur or Croque Madamme. My favorite is their herbed omelet with goat cheese and a side of sliced cake …any cake!
On Sundays Bonnie Ruth does a brunch from 10:30am to 2:30pm with equally amazing choices of egg benedict, crepes, made to order omelets, Granola homemade croissants, assorted cake slices and much more. Don’t forget the mimosa and bloodymary
Blue Mesa Grill
Blue Mesa Grill is Dallas’s favorite brunch place for a reason. The sweet potato chips alone are worth the trip. They do a brunch buffet with choices ranging from egg benedict, waffles, glazed ham, enchiladas, made to order omelets, taco station, salads and much more, and guess what it includes unlimited champagne or mimosas. On Sundays 9am to 3pm.
Original Pancake house
There is a reason that there is always a big wait at the Original Pancake house during weekends. Any of the omelets – French rolled and oven baked, with a side of fresh salsa is perfect fuel for the day. Kids love the silver dollar pancakes, Dutch baby and chocolate chocolate pancakes. I can’t get enough of the buckwheat pancakes and the pumpkin pancakes when they are in season!
Breadwinners had the best egg benedict around! enough said!! Their waffles and scrambles are a favorite too not to forget the cakes they bring out in the beginning! Try the new Northpark location which has a super nice patio with view of Louis Vuittons 😉
Origin kitchen and bar
Our favorite at Origin Kitchen+bar is the King – a generous portion of French toast, bacon, grilled banana and rum flavored whipped cream. I had the veggie omelet with a paleo pancake, the pancake was made with almond and coconut flour and was yum. Hubby had the hash with beef, The Roadie – pulled chicken, pan fried brie, bacon tomato pesto in a pita was good too. We polished everything off with some mimosa.
Souk located in the Trinity Groves area is another favorite of ours, when the weather is good which is most of the time in Dallas – you can dine alfresco and have Pomegranate mimosa followed by Moroccan Monte Cristo, Souks take on a French toast, which really tastes like a slice of cake topped with Mascarpone cheese, honey, orange blossom, fresh berries and pistachios – super yummy. Brunch indulgence done right! Their steak and eggs are pretty awesome too. This place take you to the souks and markets of the Atlas mountains. Hummus is a favorite anytime of the day but we have to make a trip back to try the tagine – a chicken, vegetable or lamb dish slow cooked in a clay pot with Moroccan spices.
Mercat Bistro in Harwood District, its a cozy and romantic little French place hidden away in the hardwood District of uptown Dallas. We ordered the bread basket which came with an assortment of pastries, I requested for an Almond croissant to be included in the basket and they sweetly obliged. The place setting were so pretty- a mix match of beautiful china, the place had a definite European café vibe to it, we felt like we were in Paris on a vacation! We ordered some Mimosa and a soon to be named drink special…
We ordered the Egg benedict- hubby’s favorite, some French toast, the Hatch Chili crepe and some eggs with bacon. There were cheese Danish, a croissant, a fruity peach Danish and my favorite almond croissant in the pastry basket. The Egg benedict was served with some greens, D was happy with his French toast and miss Teen wiped out here eggs, bacon and fingerling potatoes, my crepe with hatch chili and egg was light and just right, the meal was delicious. I think my Almond croissant was the winner at our table – not too sweet, not too much almond crème, just perfect! I would stop by there just for that croissant and a coffee if I worked or lived around Harwood or uptown!
I almost forgot about my cool drink that I tried at Mercat – it was their new drink, a frozen ball of orange and pomegranate juice with some mint and berries, topped off with champagne. The drink started off like a champagne and as the ball melted, to a very fruity mimosa. I think they were going to call in Puegeot minon! They were still working on the name, I’m calling it the Fruit Reunion mimosa ball!
We ate at Saint Ann Restaurant & Bar for an early Mothers’ day brunch. We had a table outdoor, although it was raining cats and dogs in the suburbs it was calm even a little sun peeking out every once in a while. We had the Bacon wrapped sizzlers, ‘Strawberry Shortcake’ French toast, Chocolate pancakes, custom omelet and of course hubby’s favorite Egg Benedict. We washed it all down with some mimosa. Everything was wonderful from the beautiful outdoor covered patio with string lights to cool couches and the fireplace to the attentive service and the yummy food. The Strawberry shortcake French toast was the winner in our table!
