In Dallas, brunch is a contact sport that ends in clinking glasses and the finest preparation of eggs, pancakes, and pastries. This is why it’s essential to know exactly where to find French toast worth going to the mats for, crispy bacon worth waiting for, and the strongest mimosas one can find to block out the memory of how long it took to get a table.

This city is practically littered with excellent brunch options, but these options are worthy of putting on the brunch bucket list.

This Uptown French bistro does brunch better than most places. Order a house made sticky pecan bun for the table, and then consider the dutch baby pancake made with Texas blueberries, lemon cream, and caramelized almonds. For something more savory, the Croque Madame is un grand succès.

Yes, that’s right. Hide has reopened on Greenville and with a shift in hours to the earlier end, its added one heck of a noteworthy brunch service to the menu. Order up breakfast tacos, a honey butter chicken biscuit that will make Whataburger quake in its boots, breakfast pizza, and a ribeye scramble for those hearty breakfast types.

Rye on Greenville has added brunch to its repitorie. Order the Qrösti, a quiche made with a hashbrown crust, or the GELTy Pleasure, a pork belly take on the BLT with an egg that is sure to delight. Of course, there is also an extensive cocktail menu that ventures far beyond the typical mimosa.
