This rustic diner serves delicious American classics made from fresh, local ingredients. Order anything from scrambles and fluffy pancakes to its top-quality coffee and bar concoctions. This Bishop Arts diner is one of the best places to go for breakfast and brunch.
A Dallas favorite is this friendly and casual bakery-café with a French bistro feel. Cakes, pies and pastries are made fresh daily, perfect for those on the go or for noshing on the brick patio. It's difficult not to arrive and find the place packed-especially during brunch, when the flat iron steak and eggs and scrambles are king and queen.
The latest restaurant concept in the Harwood district, is a contemporary European-style bistro called Mercat Bistro. Paired with a tailored menu and wine list, this restaurant is an honest compilation of classics mostly from Europe and Texas. In addition, homemade croissants, pastries, coffee, and to go items are always tasty.
If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it should be eaten at a place that specializes in morning meals. Try the frittatas as a nice alternative to omelets with plenty of combinations from vegetarian to super-meaty, but it's Crossroads' signature cinnamon sticky buns that attract the biggest crowds. Served fresh and warm, they're big enough to share, but good enough to hoard.
If consistency is your thing, you're probably going to like Hattie's. The Bishop Arts District restaurant with a Southern menu has been cooking up shrimp and grits in Oak Cliff for 20 years now. Not a whole lot has changed since it first opened. The dining room is white, bright and full of light, and the food, especially the Chicken and Waffles, has been consistently delicious for years.
