It couldn’t compete with newcomer brunch eatery Snooze

After 15 years in Addison, healthy dining stalwart Dream Cafe has closed its doors.

Dream Cafe closed its location at Village on the Parkway after brunch service on August 12, according to CultureMap. The restaurant will keep running its outpost in the Quadrangle at 2800 Routh Street, which has been operating continuously since 1988. For two years before that, the long-standing healthy eatery had a home on Knox Street. Another Dream Cafe outpost on Mockingbird is a franchised location, and owner Mary O’Brien told CultureMap she’s glad to be able to focus on one eatery and get back in the kitchen.

It appears the long-time Dallas pancake outpost known for ricotta-doused stacks, veggie-filled omelets, and granola-crusted french toast couldn’t compete with the recent arrival of Denver’s buzzy brunch chain, Snooze, with its hour-long waits and boozy breakfasts. The chain has seen equal success in other Texas cities, including Houston and Austin.

Stay tuned for updates on what will be come of Dream Cafe’s former Addison home.
