Sunday brunch is a standing appointment on most Dallasite’s social calendars and there are plenty of spots throughout DFW for you to enjoy your brunch cocktails and eggs benny.
But I am an East Dallas girl and have been for about the past 20 years so in this blog and video I’m sharing my Top 5 brunch spots in East Dallas. ⬅️ Click this link to view the video
I’ve saved my top pick for last so be sure to watch or read all the way to the end.
#5 – Hudson House in Lakewood
Hudson House is located at the southeast corner of Abrams and Mockingbird. The brunch menu here is not extensive, but it does have the essentials and they are tasty. Service is always outstanding as well
The cocktails here are legit! I highly recommend their Bellini – it’s frozen with a Grand Mariner melt down. Their martinis are excellent too.
Today we had the lobster benedict and the breakfast sandwich. We nearly licked out plates clean. Yum! 🤤
#4 – The AllGood Cafe
It’s called the AllGood because it’s literally All Good. For me, it’s a Deep Ellum institution. And if you want to feel like you’re in Austin, then the All Good will be the perfect spot for you.
Breakfast is served daily from 8a to 3p. The breakfast menu has a lot of egg dishes, sandwiches, biscuits and gravy, and pancakes of course. I mean, it is breakfast after all.
My personal favorite, the South Austin migas.
The AllGood is also open for lunch and dinner. I highly recommend all of their comfort food.
They’re located at 2934 Main Street which is at the corner of Main and Walton in Deep Ellum.
#3 – Terilli’s
Located on Lower Greenville, Terilli’s is also an East Dallas/Greenville Avenue institution that recently opened again for Sunday brunch.
I highly recommend making a reservation because they always pack a full house.
The new brunch menu includes their signature Italchos – which are basically Italian nachos. They also have salads, egg-focused brunch entrees with 3 types of hollandaise sauce, sandwiches and burgers, and traditional breakfast sides.
Be sure to check out the grapefruit and margarita martinis.
#2 – Lounge Here
If you’re looking for a stellar brunch spot on the east side of White Rock Lake, near the Arboretum, then you simply must check out Lounge Here.
Lounge Here has kickass finish out, a mighty menu and excellent service. The brunch menu has southern staples like biscuits and gravy, shrimp and grits, and chicken fried steak. They also offer a classic breakfast called “Here for You”, Eggs Benedict and a vegetable omelette.
Today I ordered the D’usse French 75 and charcuterie board. I know, it was very French of me. This French 75 is made with D’usse cognac instead of gin and it was delightful!
Lounge Here is located at 9028 Garland Road which is between Lakeland Drive and Old Gate Lane.
Last but not lease, my #1 all-time favorite….
#1 – The Old Monk
The Old Monk is a pub that will celebrate its 25th anniversary this year. If you’ve been in the bar slash restaurant business in Dallas for 25 years, you must be doing something right.
It’s located at 2847 Henderson which is at the corner of Henderson and Pershing.
Brunch is offered Saturday and Sunday.
The crowd is very mixed. There are young singles, young families, multi-generational families….basically, everyone comes to The Old Monk.
Dine in the completely open air patio, the enclosed patio, or inside. Regardless of where you sit, the food and service will be amazing.
I highly recommend ANYTHING on the menu. If you’re a fan of eggs benny, rest assured, the Hollandaise is made fresh daily. And my poached eggs have never been over-cooked!
Happy dining and I’ll see you soon!
