Just because breakfast is the most important meal of the day, doesn’t mean it should be a wallet-emptying experience. For too long, the words "cheap breakfast" conjured images of unidentifiable gas station fare and drive-thrus that weren't much better.

Cheap breakfasts can be good, and good breakfasts can be cheap. If you’re looking for a way to satiate your morning hunger without spending too much, any of these options will satisfy your stomach and your wallet.

Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

1. Bistro B

Copy Link
9780 Walnut St
Dallas, TX 75243
(214) 575-9885
Visit Website
With a menu the size of a small catalogue, it’s no wonder it’s become a hotspot for Vietnamese, Chinese and Asian fusion cuisines. While the breakfast options make up only a small portion of the menu – think shaken tofu served with eggs and and bacon – the fact that they are available all day makes up for the slight deficiency.

2. Corner Market

Copy Link
3426 Greenville Ave
Dallas, TX 75206
(214) 826-8283
Visit Website
Most people wouldn’t expect to walk into a flower shop to get a killer breakfast, but these people haven’t been to The Corner Market. The budget-friendly breakfast and deli offerings at the Greenville Avenue shop are equally as awesome as their floral arrangements.

3. Dix Coney Island

Copy Link
123 N Elm St
Denton, TX 76201
(940) 218-1735
As one of the newer restaurants on the Denton Square, the retro-themed diner helps to fill a sizeable void in the town’s breakfast options. Not only are the prices accessible to the most frugal of college students, but Dix’s is open 24/7, making those late night cravings for blueberry pancakes seem a little less erratic.

11. Wingfield's Breakfast & Burgers

Copy Link
2615 S Beckley Ave
Dallas, TX 75224
(214) 943-5214
Visit Website
Although this South Dallas haunt has received a good deal of notoriety for its burgers, the breakfast part of its name often flies under the radar. Perhaps this is because the window of time to get breakfast is short, which can exacerbate already long wait times, but hearty sandwiches and meals that rival fast food prices make it well worth the wait. Pro tip: Call in your order to help save time.
