Everyone in Dallas has their opinion on the best places to have brunch. But how about what to order once you get there? From pancakes in Plano to Bloody Marys in Deep Ellum, we are breaking down this brunch situation once and for all.
8. Avocado Toast at Mudhen Meat & Greens
Why settle for regular ole avocado toast when you can add beet-fennel sauerkraut and a soft-boiled egg to the mix? It’s colorful, health-conscious and fun, just like this restaurant located at the Dallas Farmers’ Market.
900 S. Harwood St.; 214-698-7000 or mudheninthe.net
7. Eggs Creole Benedict at the Meddlesome Moth
This dish is Southern brunch at its best, with fried green tomatoes, poached eggs, a split biscuit, crawfish étouffée and cayenne hollandaise. Mmm.
1621 Oak Lawn Ave.; 214-628-7900 or mothinthe.net
6. CHICKEN AND WAFFLES AT HATTIE’S
C’mon, you knew this dish was going to find itself on the list.
418 N. Bishop Ave.; 214-942-7400 or hatties.com
5. Nutella Doughnuts at Americano
Just when you thought you’d outgrown doughnuts, this happened. These addicting additions to your brunch are technically an appetizer, but for some, it’s hard not to order multiples for your meal.
1530 Main St.; 214-261-4600 or americanodallas.com
4. Banana Pancakes at Whiskey Cake
Cue the Jack Johnson tunes: These banana pancakes will make you sing the happiest of brunch songs. And yes, they’re worth the drive to Plano. Trust us.
3601 Dallas Pkwy., Plano; 972-993-2253 or whiskey-cake.com
3. Blood Mary at Anvil Pub
This is officially the Bloody Mary to end all Bloody Marys. And when it includes a bacon cheeseburger slider, a pretzel hot dog, shrimp and plenty of meat, cheese and veggies, it’s actually quite filling.
2638 Elm St.; 214-741-1271 or anvilpubdeepellum.com
2. BGE at The Porch
The Porch can do no wrong in our book. But it’s the buttermilk biscuits, sunny-side-up eggs and maple sausage gravy that make this dish so damn heavenly. Grandma, is that you back there in the kitchen?
2912 N. Henderson Ave.; 214-828-2916 or theporchrestaurant.com
1. CROQUE MADAME AT ODDFELLOWS
This croque madame will transport you—temporarily—to the bustling streets of Paris. The delicious coffee and adorable neighborhood vibe of the Bishop Arts District doesn’t hurt the situation, either.
