The most interesting Dallas breakfast spots
Dallas has long been home to a number of top-of-the-line breakfast spots. From old-school, retro diners to upscale brunch havens, the city has everything you could want in terms of breakfast foods. Our list highlights some of the most interesting options that the city offers, all of which have brought more great food to Dallas’ bustling culinary scene.
Crossroads Diner has been a must for breakfast diners for years. The classic diner was founded by chefs Tom Fleming and Carl Strelecki after they had each spent years in the industry. Their sticky buns, created and perfected by Chef Fleming, are to die for. Other popular items at Crossroads are the buttermilk pancakes and the Canadian bacon eggs benedict. The restaurant is known for its enormous portions, so everyone is sure to leave feeling full. Stop in to grab one of the largest sticky buns you’ve ever had next time you’re on Preston Road.
Our next on the list takes a turn towards the modern with its food. Whisk Crepes Café has been around since 2015, founded by Julien Eelsen. Eelsen, a native of Paris, France, left the airline business to create Whisk after falling in love with Dallas. Whisk Crepes Café’s most popular entrees are their crepes of course. The La Complete is a classic crepe that can do no wrong, while the Paris, TX crepe adds a bit of Texas to the French classic – using smoked brisket, jalapenos, and barbeque cream. Another sought-after item at Whisk is the 7 O’Clock breakfast sandwich, perfect for those on-the-go. Though only being open for five years, Whisk Crepes Café has managed to make quite an impact on Dallas’ breakfast scene. They also have a second location, Whisk and Eggs, in Plano, Texas.
Healthy eaters, look no further. Another Preston Hollow spot — and the newest restaurant on this list — The Market Local Comfort Café specializes in vegetarian breakfast options and is Dallas Kosher Certified. The Market opened in May of 2019 near the Galleria Mall, and has been incredibly popular ever since. The space itself is beautiful and modern, a design created by the owners and another designer to reflect the eclectic food served. The Market’s chef, Jordona Kohn, comes from Le Cordon Bleu culinary school in Dallas, where she graduated as valedictorian. Kohn has worked primarily in Dallas’ culinary scene, but has also spent time across the world, venturing as far as Jerusalem. Some of Jordona and The Market’s most popular items are the breakfast sandwiches, of which there are multiple choices that are all great, and their fabulous baked pastries and bread. Another one of their much-loved menu items is the avocado toast, made with their fresh baked bread. If you’re looking for great kosher food or just an interesting change from standard breakfast-fare, be sure to make visiting The Market a priority.
A Dallas classic since 1961, Kuby’s Sausage House in the University Park neighborhood has been making some of the best German sausages and specialty meats for years. Founded by Karl Kuby when he decided to bring his family’s generations-old tradition of sausage-making from Germany to Texas, Kuby’s has been the place for German food since its start. Sausage just so happens to be a staple of breakfast foods as well, so you can be sure to find great breakfast at Kuby’s. Their breakfast biscuit, a massive biscuit with sausage, eggs, gravy, and potatoes, and their Build Your Own Omelet are their two most popular breakfast items. The restaurant also has German pancakes for vegetarians. If you are a meat-eater, be sure to stop in and give Kuby’s a try.
To complete our list, we have San Martin Bakery and Café. San Martin hails from Guatemala, where their pastries are beloved. Dallas is their only US location, which serves up the same great foods and coffee as its Guatemalan counterparts. Their most popular menu item is the Salvadoreño, a Salvadorian classic that features two stuffed tortillas topped with fried eggs and ranchera sauce and is served with plantains on the side. Their baked goods are also near-perfect. This last breakfast spot is an excellent place for South American breakfast-fare and straight-from-the-source Guatemalan coffee. Make sure to give San Martin a try next time you’re near the Oak Lawn neighborhood of Dallas.
From classic diners to the eclectic to ethnic foods, Dallas has a ton of excellent breakfast options available. We hope our list motivates you to give some of these great spots a try!
