Where: Village on the Parkway, 5100 Belt Line Rd Dallas, TX
Why: As soon as you go to the Dream Café you’ll understand why we love it so much. The brunch menu is extensive. There are so many amazing dishes you will have a difficult time deciding what to order. Every time we go we struggle trying to decide what to get. It’s a cozy, little spot with a great patio for outdoor dining as well. Fresh ingredients, friendly staff, and a satisfying brunch. Plus the food is health oriented, with organic ingredients and vegan options.
Must Try: You have to start your morning with a Popover – they’re housemade, warm, delicious and served with strawberry butter. The Glorified Omelette (fresh spinach, Swiss cheese and sautéed mushrooms) is awesome! The Cloud Cakes (fluffy ricotta pancakes topped with fresh strawberries, crème fraiche and powdered sugar) are a favorite as well. The 90210 Benedict (Artichoke hearts, spinach and grilled sliced tomato) is incredible. Honestly, everything is so darn good!!
Where: 5411 Belt Line Rd, Dallas, TX 75254
Why: Next to Look Cinemas, Ivy Kitchen is an upscale restaurant that is serving up fresh, delicious dinner, drinks, lunch and brunch. Fill up on brunch and then hop on over to Look Cinemas and catch a film. It’s a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Must Try: The Chicken and Waffle Sliders (waffle cakes, crispy chicken, jalapeno cream gravy, maple syrup with home-style potatoes) are incredible. We also love the Cinnamon Crusted French Toast and The Cure Sandwich (egg, cheese, avocado, poblano queso, tomato, bacon and sage sausge on ciabatta bread).
