Where to Have Brunch in Dallas

By Salah Izzedin

Dallas is home to a rich, diverse community, and our local cuisine is a great reflection of that. These are some of my favorite places to go on the weekends. The menus are eclectic and delicious, and the ambience is 

Woodlands American Grille

Woodlands is a great place to eat any time of day, but their brunch is especially delicious. The menu features elegant takes on American and Tex-Mex favorites, like a breakfast tostada with black beans, eggs, avocado cream, and chipotle aioli. 

For our money, you cannot go wrong with Woodland’s steak and eggs: asada served with tangy hollandaise sauce, eggs, bacon, and parmesan truffle potatoes. Pair it with a mimosa or a Bloody Mary and you’ll be full and happy for the rest of the day.

Commons Club at Virgin Hotels Dallas

Commons is a modern social club with an open kitchen concept. The chef creates French-meets-Texan dishes, so you’ll find a little of everything on the brunch menu. French classics like warm pastries and seasonal quiche are delicious with a house cappuccino. My personal favorite, however, is the brisket hash served with runny eggs and pickled peppers. 

Commons often has fun themed brunch events and live music, so check their website to see the upcoming schedule.

Beverley’s Bistro

Beverley’s is a lovely, intimate spot located just off the Katy Trail. Their menu is small, but carefully curated so you are sure to find something you will love. 

If you’re looking for a smaller meal, Beverley’s has outstanding brunch appetizers. We suggest the latkes and caviar (served with creme fraiche and pickled shallots-yum!). 

For a classic brunch, you have to try Beverley’s french toast. Crispy, creamy challah bread is served with warm cinnamon apples, vanilla bean mascarpone, apple butter, and honey sesame granola. It is truly out of this world.

Dahlia Bar & Bistro

Dahlia’s menu is inspired by southern European cuisine, but of course they offer local Tex-Mex favorites, too. You’ll find the absolute best breakfast tacos, made with whole wheat tortillas, a savory scramble, creamy brie, and salsa verde. 

If you’re in the mood for something that is more lunch and less brunch, the short rib sliders are fantastic with a side of house potatoes. The tender brisket is served on a brioche bun with horseradish aioli and caramelized onions. 

What really sets Dahlia’s apart, in my opinion, is their brunch cocktails menu. In addition to classics like mimosas and a Bloody Mary, you can find a wide array of house specials to pair with your meal. The “Just One More” is a personal favorite: pina loca tequila blended with tamarind puree, beet juice, lime juice, and garnished with fresh pineapple.

Dahlia’s Brunch Hours: 10:30am-3pm Friday through Sunday
