A small, casual space with dark wood accents, low-key lighting, and the walls covered with eclectic framed images, Ten Bells has all the charm of a traditional English pub with all the southern goodness of a comfort food-centric menu. The locals favor Ten Bells for their hearty brunch menu, but honestly those short rib cheese fries taste exceptional at any meal—especially late night. Try the Duck Confit Hash or the Smoked Salmon Benedict, but don’t worry they have your traditional country breakfast options like sausage and eggs. They keep you guessing with an ever-changing list of craft cocktails, and host pub trivia on Wednesdays.
Since 1956, Norma's has been wrapping up Oak Cliff stomachs in the sweet embrace of authentic Texan comfort food, like their epiphany-inducing biscuits and gravy. The place is an institution with an award-winning menu and famous Mile-High Cream Pies™. The place is a total throwback with an authentic diner atmosphere and wholesome, friendly waitstaff.
