The Absolute Best Brunches in Dallas
Indulge a little.
It doesn’t get much more “Dallas” than a lively brunch with friends on a sunny patio, but with the cold weather settling in and the continued pleas of health professionals for us to eliminate our in-person interactions with people outside our households, we should embrace the concept of takeout and delivery. All the same benefits of brunch—Benedicts, Bloody Marys, and bubbly—can be procured for at-home enjoyment, whether it’s Sunday Funday or a random Wednesday morning and you need a break from Zooming with your co-workers. Here are the best bets for brunch in bed.
The Biscuit Bar
You don’t have to wait for the weekend to score a hearty brunch built on a solid foundation of buttery biscuits. The entire menu is available at all four locations for pickup or delivery, which means you could soon be devouring a towering Rough Night biscuit loaded with Southern fried chicken, a burger patty, ham, turkey, pulled pork, bacon, tots, cheddar and house made sausage gravy. Throw in a fruit-forward brunch punch that serves five and you’ve got yourself a party.
How to order: Order online or order delivery from DoorDash, Favor, or Uber Eats.
The Dream Cafe
Procure a bounty of Benedicts (traditional, grilled salmon, steak or crab cakes), healthy options (but is that really brunch?), and their famous, fluffy Cloud Cakes made with ricotta and served with a side of real Vermont maple syrup. Any day of the week!
How to order: Call your nearest location for pickup or order delivery from Postmates.
El Vecino Tex Mex
This is the spot for huevos rancheros, steak fajitas and eggs, chilaquiles, and one of the most perfect breakfast-lunch hybrids ever: the Omelete de Enchilada. This masterpiece features a three-egg omelet wrapped around a beef, cheese or chicken enchilada and topped with tomatillo sauce, chili con carne or chili con queso.
How to order: Call 469-802-6060 for takeout or order delivery from Uber Eats or Postmates.
The Meddlesome Moth
While you won’t be dining under the signature stained glass windows of the dining room, you can enjoy all the greatness of Meddlesome Moth in a fun home version. Delivery and takeout options make it easy to access to their extensive brunch menu weekends from 11am to 2:30pm. That means sitting in your favorite chair scarfing down sticky buns, French toast sandwiches, or the ever-popular Mother-Child Reunion featuring fried chicken, scrambled eggs, grits, and jalapeño gravy.
How to order: Call 214-628-7900 for pickup and use Uber Eats or DoorDash for delivery.
Meso Maya Downtown
Brunch can be found Saturday and Sunday until 3 pm with favorites including their Mexican version of French toast, chilaquiles verdes, chorizo and egg tacos, plus a variety of mouthwatering margaritas, including their famous avocado-and-pineapple version and a spicy serrano berry. Thankfully, guacamole by the quart is also a thing.
