Whether you're a local seeking new favorites or a visitor eager to savor the best brunch offerings, we've got you covered with our top picks that promise to elevate your brunch game. Join us as we take a mid-morning tour of DFW, where brunch isn't just a weekend affair — it's a daily celebration of flavors!
Not only is the egg-obsessed menu at Eggdaddy in Addison delicious, but it’s also all locally sourced and made fresh daily, and trust us, you can tell. We love that this spot has breakfast, brunch and lunch options that are healthy, delicious AND Insta-worthy at the same time. We’re talking breakfast tacos, sandwiches, salads, brunch cocktails and so much more! But if we had to rec one choice and one choice only, it would HAVE to be that Benny Bowl.
2. Tribal All-Day Cafe
Healthy dishes made with locally-sourced ingredients, and the friendliest staff ever — you just can't lose when you visit Tribal All Day Cafe in the Bishop Arts District! But it's not just for the bright bowls with avocado and jalapeño-cashew cream cheese that the cool kids eat out on the patio. It's not just for the nourishing whole food choices. It's all that, and the positive vibes (and GREAT coffee selection) that flow freely all around the place that keep us coming back.
3. Press Cafe
What better way to finish off a morning run on the Trinity Trails than with booze and bacon? Press Café attracts a robust brunch crowd with its primo Clear Fork location and an elegant, yet casual, mix of traditional breakfast offerings and amped-up favorites like the Banana Walnut Waffles. No matter what time it is, the patio is one of the best in the city, too!
4. Easy Monkey
Easy Monkey, another Fort Worth fave, is serving up a brunch menu the likes of which we've never seen before! Fusing Southern favorites with Asian flavors creates a whole new genre of brunch and we are HERE for it! We love their orange chicken and waffles, breakfast fried rice, scallion pancakes, and their queso is IMMACULATE as well! We love their cocktail and coffee options, too — like the Ube coconut latte and burnt banana creme cold brew.
Nestled in the heart of the Bishop Arts District, we stumbled upon Oddfellows, a brunch spot that has quickly become our go-to! With its bright and inviting atmosphere, this place serves up brunch every day of the week, making it the perfect spot for a mid-week pick-me-up or a weekend brunch date. They've got the cutest patio, and the red velvet waffles have become one of our favorite brunch dishes on the planet!
With locations in Dallas, Addison, Plano, Frisco and Fort Worth, Snooze is taking over the DFW brunch scene. The Dallas-area outposts of this popular Denver brunch spot carry local brews (Community Beer Co.) and breads (Empire Baking Company), and we can wholeheartedly recommend ANYTHING on the menu that comes with that deliciously tangy green chile sauce. But the real reason to come here is the pancake — try the Pineapple Upside-Down ones, and thank us later.
Sadelle's in Highland Park Village is a brunch institution in New York, and we are thrilled to have their bagels and their brunch service in Dallas! Some even say they make the best bagels in the country — so you HAVE to try them! The bright atmosphere and award-winning brunch and bakery will keep you coming back. Trust us.
8. Dream Cafe
Whether you're brunching at Dream Cafe's Uptown location or the one in Lakewood, your surroundings are going to be as beautiful as your meal is scrumptious! At the Uptown location, if you walk to the back of the restaurant, there is a SECOND, almost hidden patio within a bright and spacious courtyard that is perfect for your Insta feed.
9. First Watch
Whether you’re a picky eater, have dietary restrictions or food allergies, First Watch is there to make sure you get exactly what you need with their fresh and seasonal ingredients! They have nine locations throughout DFW, so there's sure to be one near you. Their menu is HUGE — we didn’t know where to start because everything sounded incredible. We went with the million-dollar bacon and an order of avo toast — both were SO tasty. You also HAVE TO try their pomegranate tequila sunrise!
10. Hot Box Biscuit Club
Fort Worth's Hot Box Biscuit Club is serving up some insanely good comfort food brunch options in a rustic setting. Oh yea, and the biscuits are simply the best! These chicken biscuit sandwiches pair so well with the Southern sides and killer beverages. Whether you prefer mac and cheese, or collard greens there are endless pairing possibilities. Try the breakfast margarita!
11. Lucky's Cafe
Lucky's is the most underrated brunch spot in the Oak Lawn area — anyone who's ever worked the night shift in the hospital district knows what we mean! They've been in the neighborhood for more than 30 years, and they have amazing daily specials. The 50's-style diner serves up all your home-style favorites like buttermilk pancakes and chicken fried steak with a farm-to-table twist!
With locations in Fort Worth's Southside, Bishop Arts and at Terminal D at DFW Airport, any time is a good time for brunch like only Brewed knows how! They won Reader's Choice for Best Brunch from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in 2022, and you can't go wrong no matter what you choose from their amazing menu!
