In The Big D, brunch is taken so seriously, it’s basically a sport. We’ve sipped and dined our way through Dallas to tackle the top restaurants for the most important meal of the week. Whether you’re #TeamMimosas or #TeamFoodie, read on to find out the hottest Dallas brunch spots to get your brunch on.
Bread Winners is a longtime favorite of Dallasites and a timeless brunch spot. Its classic brunch menu includes a handmade granola bar, breakfast tacos and egg dishes. If the wait is long, hang out at the bar and sample the unique selection of “Hangover Elixers” like the Cinnamon Toast Milk Punch or opt for a classic mimosa.
Lower Greenville’s coolest restaurant, HG Sply Co. is a hotspot for the most important meal of the week. The paleo-inspired fresh fare feels like an indulgence while still remaining semi-healthy. Sip crisp mimosas made with fresh-squeezed orange juice and grub on a classic HG breakfast plate with eggs, bacon, sweet potato hash and toast. Bonus: the view of downtown from the rooftop is unbeatable.
The Rustic is more about the environment than the grub. You’re bound to see (pretty much) everyone you know and maybe a few local Dallas celebs on the massive patio. There’s always free live music Saturdays and Sunday mornings during brunch, so jam out while you pig out. The dishes are served family-style and brunch is a fixed price, so bring a group of friends and sample a little bit of everything.
Mudhen is a testament that healthy food can still be yummy. Located at the Dallas Farmers Market- the flagship restaurant makes most of its dishes with local produce from the market. If you’re gluten or dairy-free, Mudhen easily accommodates dietary needs, and they even have an in-house nutrition counselor. Cold-pressed juices, avocado toast and quinoa bowls make this hotspot a trendy stop on your “to-brunch” list. After you dine, shop the farmers market for one-of-a-kind artisan goods and produce.
Go for the photo-ops, stay for the food. Stir is one of Deep Ellum’s most popular restaurants, and definitely the most instagram-worthy. The views from the rooftop are gorgeous and the décor and art makes for a cool, hip vibe. The hype doesn’t stop at the views, though—Stirr known for its boozy shareable drinks like an oversized frosé and a jumbo mule made with an entire bottle of vodka.
If you’re looking for the best bacon in Dallas, head to Tillman’s Roadhouse. Swanky and southern, the Bishop Arts eatery is known for its comfort food, especially anything with bacon, biscuits and gravy. Tillman’s is great for a large group, never too crowded, and has an unbeatable, authentic southern charm.
