When the craving strikes for delicious brunch, make sure to visit one of these four best brunch places in Dallas. Each has something unique to offer to visitors.
If you’re up for something different from the traditional bacon and eggs, head to Americano for a boozy brunch. This spot is on Main Street in Dallas and even boasts outdoor seating, but the patio fills up quickly on weekend mornings. Start your meal with a specialty beverage, such as the Basil Balsamic Bloody Mary, Rosemary Rickey, or Bergamont Breakfast Cocktail. The house-made Nutella doughnuts are a treat for your sweet tooth.
You can find a few traditional items on the menu, but one of the top choices among locals is the breakfast pizza, topped with farm eggs, potatoes, and sausage gravy. Try some unique flavors when you order the egg white frittata, served with seasonal greens, currants, pine nuts, marinated tomatoes, and arugula, all tossed in lemon vinaigrette.
When you’re looking for brunch, the first place you think about might not be a Thai restaurant. However, the Thai-Vietnamese brunch fare at Malai Kitchen is likely to change your mind. When you arrive, you’ll receive an amuse-bouche of eggplant dip and sticky rice. One of the most popular menu items is Asian-inspired French toast, which includes slices of a Vietnamese baguette served with flambéed bananas and warm coconut syrup with a hint of mango.
If you’d rather stick to savory dishes, try the Malai-style eggs Benedict. The coconut-spiked biscuits are topped with shrimp, poached eggs, Thai basil, and a spicy hollandaise sauce with Thai chilies. With $3 mimosas and $5 Bloody Mary’s, you can sip brunch drinks without breaking the bank.
Armoury Deep Ellum
Armoury Deep Ellum, or Armoury D.E., is known throughout Dallas as a hot spot for craft cocktails and beers on tap. On the weekends, it turns into a local favorite destination for brunch fare. The kid in you will go wild for the French Toast von Cocoa, topped with Cocoa Krispies cereal, bananas, and Nutella spread.
Other menu options include tacos and omelets, each prepared with your choice of meat options, including sausage, duck, pork belly, jalapeno bacon, pulled chicken, smoked pork loin, paprika salami, and beef cheek. If you’re sticking to a vegetarian diet, you’ll love the Budai, which is a dish made with portobello mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, red and green peppers, spinach, an egg over easy, and hollandaise sauce.
Nick & Sam’s Grill
Located in Uptown Dallas, Nick & Sam’s Grill is a prominent fixture for brunchgoers. If you get there early enough, you might score a seat on the patio. Make sure to sample the famous sticky buns, drizzled with caramel and topped with raisins and pecans. Crispy breakfast flautas are also popular, stuffed with Serrano peppers and scrambled eggs. You can even sample flat-iron steak, which comes with two eggs, a corned beef potato hash cake, and béarnaise sauce when served during the brunch hour.
