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.

Henry’s Majestic in Uptown is a great spot to see and be seen, so expect a wait. But the patio is large and airy, and the blueberry croissant French toast souffle is worth waiting for, as are the charred tomatillo chilaquiles. Don’t miss the monkey rolls for a savory treat or the deviled egg avocado toast, which puts a new twist on a brunch classic. 

Knox Bistro

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.
