The Best Dallas Brunches to Enjoy From Home

Sponsored by

As restaurant owners continue to adjust to the realities of social distancing, they’ve thankfully created ways to bring all the best parts of brunch right to you at home. Someone else does the cooking. The cocktails are plentiful. And the cheerful camaraderie (perhaps the most vital component) can be achieved via video chat. Whether you’re celebrating Mom, your stimulus check, or simply making it through another week, here are your best bets.

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.

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! 
Call (214) 824-2503 for pickup or use Postmates for delivery

El Vecino

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. 
Call 469.802.6060 for takeout or use Uber Eats and Postmates for delivery

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.
Call 214-628-7900 for pickup and use Uber Eats or DoorDash for delivery

Meso Maya

Support the in-house staff by ordering delivery within a 7-mile radius of the Lakewood or Preston Forest location ($25 minimum order) or select curbside pickup to get out of the house. Brunch is available Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 3pm with favorites including their Mexican version of French toast, chilaquiles verdes, chorizo and egg tacos, plus mimosa and margarita kits. Guacamole by the quart is also a thing.

Norma’s Cafe

Quarantining with a crowd? Norma’s has you covered with new family-style brunch options. Each meal serves six and can be ordered all day, seven days a week.

Oddfellows

A beautiful brunch is just a phone call or few clicks away via delivery within three miles of the Bishop Arts District, or grab it yourself from the walk-up window. Start things off right with a quart of Bloody Marys then work your way through pancakes, chicken fried steak and eggs, and chicken and waffles. You can even add on a full grocery list for your own weekly meal prep while you’re at it.

Toasted Coffee + Kitchen

Many people wouldn’t consider brunch brunch without avocado toast. Here, toasts are the specialty of the house and you can get several varieties of smashed green creaminess on crispy bread, as well as versions loaded with salmon, mushrooms, or ricotta and berries. Omelets, breakfast sandwiches, smoothies, and espresso drinks round up the ample options for everyday brunching delivered right to your door or available for pickup.
