Find the fluffiest pancakes, booziest mimosas, perfect eggs Benedict, breakfast tacos, and more.
In Dallas, brunch is a contact sport that ends in clinking glasses and the finest preparation of eggs, pancakes, and pastries. This is why it’s essential to know exactly where to find French toast worth going to the mats for, crispy bacon worth waiting for, and the strongest mimosas one can find to block out the memory of how long it took to get a table.
This city is littered with excellent brunch options, but these options are worth putting on the bucket list.
Snowbird Cocktail Lounge & Kitchen
Visit this Frisco spot for weekend brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Avocado toast lovers can try the Avo’gooday, which embellishes the brunch fave with smoked salmon, poached egg, mixed greens, and wild berries. Also tempting is the Fri’ Your Ttatas, made with asparagus, artichoke, goat cheese, and cherry tomatoes. And it is a cocktail lounge, so don’t forget to order at least one.
Weekend brunch at Eataly’s Terra is a treat — start with wood-fire cooked eggs and add on from a whole menu of fresh cheeses, meats, baked goods, and even spaghetti if that’s the craving.
Any day is good for brunch at this SMU-adjacent spot — and it’s served daily, starting at 11 a.m. Those with a sweet tooth will want to try the Apple Pie French Toast, while classic brunch lovers might enjoy the Avocado Prosciutto Benedict.
This East Dallas bakery has all the croissants, danishes, and other breakfast bites any heart could desire, but it’s also serving up brunch-y specials every weekend. There is no set menu. It’s whatever the team has on hand and feels like whipping up. Diners can also stop in for a fat slice of quiche and a Mexican-style coffee.
It’s officially brunch o’clock at John Tesar’s Knife Steakhouse. On Saturdays and Sundays, diners can try the chef’s take on classic brunch dishes, including a beef cheek Benedict, souflee French toast, and a whole smattering of steaks for breakfast. A limited burger menu is also on offer, which includes one called the Magic (cheddar cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and onion on an English muffin).
Sadelle’s Highland Park
For classic brunch foods, from variations on Eggs Benedict to a bagel tower that’s sure to impress, hit up Sadelle’s. It recently added all day service, 7-days a week, with brunch menu items available at lunchtime. Brunch is served, every single day.
Ascension Coffee – White Rock
Sure the newest Ascension location is in a renovated chapel off White Rock Lake, but any of its locations around the Metroplex are a great place to brunch. Stop in for the extensive coffee menu and stay for the Tex-Mex omlette, salmon Benedict, and buttermilk pancakes.
This Uptown French bistro does brunch better than most places. Order a house made sticky pecan bun for the table, and then consider the dutch baby pancake made with Texas blueberries, lemon cream, and caramelized almonds. For something more savory, the Croque Madame is un grand succès.
Those looking for a classic brunch menu are advised to head to this Knox/Henderson spot. All the expected variations of eggs Benedict, a creme brulee-dipped French toast, and breakfast tacos are all on offer, along with mimosas, bellinis, and Bloody Marys.

Take a little trip to the coast of Italy — or just the Harwood District’s Italian-ish restaurant — for brunch. The lemon ricotta pancakes with blueberries will surely delight, while orders of arancini (Italian rice balls) and a plate of brunch Carbonara will give it all that Italian feeling.
