More Brunch, Please
Adding to our list of places to sip, sup, and be seen
Serial brunchers that we are, we’ve added to our roundup of the best places in the city to hang on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
There’s something a bit magical about mornings at CBD Provisions. When you sit at one of the oversized, refurbished wood tables near the bar, sunlight pours in and you get the feeling of being on a patio while still enjoying the A/C. Also magical: Sarah Green’s pecan buns with cream cheese frosting—no doubt one of the many reasons she was named “Best Baker in Dallas” by CultureMap. If sweets aren’t your thing, no fear: the Carolina rice bowl, duck hash, and green chili pork migas will do just fine.

When searching for that certain je ne sais quoi, this is the place. With wall-to-wall wine racks and an impressive raw bar, this Bishop Arts bistro lends a French twist to everything, including the menu. Sunnyside-up eggs cozy next to duck confit, and an open-face omelet is elevated with a topping of fried oysters. Pair your le petit déjeuner with a super-spicy Bloody Mary or Boulevardier Bellini.

Bishop Arts wouldn’t be Bishop Arts without pioneers like Oddfellows. Housed in an old warehouse that was once the area’s busiest trolley stop, the seven-year-old coffee shop and restaurant helped make this ’hood the hipster epicenter of Dallas. Diners who can bear the wait lines nosh on hangover classics like buffalo mac or fried chicken and waffles. Grab an espresso from the to-go window to fuel a stroll through our city’s answer to Williamsburg.

This small Lower Greenville bistro has a New York charm, no doubt because its founders arrived via NYC to set up shop over 40 years ago. Now a neighborhood institution, it’s a relaxed destination for Sunday mornings. Couples and small families gather around checkered tables for hearty Southern favorites like biscuits and gravy and shrimp and grits—all with Parisian flair. If you’ve got afternoon plans, ask for a glass of the chef’s espresso-spiked “revver-upper go-go juice.”
