3 breakfast places in Dallas you don’t have to dress up for.

Buzzbrews - 4 reasons this place rocks:

  1. Open 24-hours/day
  2. Serves breakfast 24-hours/day (and actually tastes good)
  3. All you can drink coffee (tastes damn good, too)
  4. Free wi-fi

Need I say more?

Buzzbrews is a "pop art Mecca" for people in need of caffeine and a low-key atmosphere. Menu items that stick out: Hare Krishna Stuffed Crepe, Breakfast Stuffed Nopales, and my favorite, Banana Nut Pancakes. Don't go in a large group; the diner is small, cozy, and why piss off the other people by backing up the kitchen line.

Kidding. Sort of.

AllGood Cafe - 4 reasons to go if you don't live in Deep Ellum:

  1. Purchase ingredients from local vendors like the Farmer's Market & Dallas Mozzarella Company
  2. Slogan: "It's like going to Austin without havin' to pass through Waco."
  3. South Austin Migas
  4. Retro concert posters cover the walls; live music; and when there is not live music they have it covered. Just check out their CD collection on your way to the washroom! CD's.

AllGood Cafe closes in the afternoon on Sunday's. Get there early (before 2pm) and drink coffee through a 1998 KERA mug.

One of these days I want to get a picture of their entire coffee mug collection. They're all random mugs from the 1990's. Very neat.

Alright, so I told you there were 3 - and there were!

But after discovering on their website that Lucky's is now corporate owned, I changed my mind. Not because I don't like corporations, but because I support & promote local and small business' first.

  1. don't know if you've seen this, but buzzbrews also has a location that recently opened on lemmon (4334 Lemmon Avenue, Dallas, 75219)

    in other news, meridian room over by fair park closed down because of the construction...they had the best gingerbread pancakes, how depressing!

  2. i'm new to your site, so i'm late with my post but a great local, never-have-to-get-dressed-up breakfast place is the Gold Rush Cafe in Lakewood at the corner of La Vista and Skillman (think across the street from The Tipp and Wine Enthusiast). Great food, menus that look like records and real coffee served by real nice folks.

  3. breakfast~ oak cliff style
    el jordan on bishop street. quaint, authentic and delicious. breakfast tacos for a buck!
    norma's cafe on davis. mmmmm biscuits
    stan's country kitchen on illinois. greeeeeezy and yummy!

  4. i was gonna recommend Cafe Brazil but their about us page suggests they're corporate owned ;-)

    but i'm also a huge fan of the dream cafe - near McKinney Ave - in the quadrangle. and looks like they've opened another one in addison as well.

  6. Chris, insulting people doesn't get you anywhere in life. It just makes you an angry person.

  10. Love the site. Giovanni turned me onto it and I thank him... Keep it up.

    And even though there was a idiot named Chris on your site, please don't hold it against the rest of us.
