Whether you’re trying to start the day off right with a health-focused, energy boosting meal and a cold-brew coffee, or you’re trying to recover with a Bloody Mary carafe from the night before, Deep Ellum is the go-to destination for brunch in Dallas. Deep in the heart of Dallas, Deep Ellum’s bar and restaurant scene is as vibrant and eclectic as any city in the United States. While having a reputation as a party and entertainment district, Deep Ellum during the day is perfectly family friendly and has options for any appetite.
Café Brazil – Deep Ellum
2815 Elm St, Dallas, TX 75226 | (214) 747-2730 | Website
With 7 Dallas-area locations, this 24-hour Metroplex staple has been serving up specialty coffee and exquisite diner food for almost 30 years. As their slogan “Not Just Another Coffee House” suggests, the expansive menu boasts everything from prime rib tacos to build-your-own crêpes to of course, the hard to ignore Brazilian breakfast. But that’s just the tip of iceberg.
Cane Rosso – Deep Ellum
2612 Commerce St., Dallas, TX 75226 | (214) 741-1188 | Website
Boasting an impressive all-around-menu, Cane Rosso is another beloved and home-grown eatery from the heart of Dallas. But the brunch menu is this Deep Ellum restaurant’s prized-gem — starting with $2 mimosas or a $6 Bloody Masterpiece (their take on the classic cocktail) and ending with the Breakfast Taco Pizza or Skillet Hash, you can’t go wrong here. And if your sweet tooth comes out after your first mimosa, we highly suggest the Cap N’ Crunch Cereal Waffles for good measure.

Three words: DEEP. ELLUM. TOTS. If the sound of braised pork shoulder drenched with white queso and a sunny-side-up egg on top of delicious tater tots doesn’t spark your interest, Deep Ellum’s premier bougie brunch spot may not be for your crew. There are, however, plenty more options to choose from on this colorful brunch menu — from classic staples like Chilaquiles Verde to Chicken & Waffles to the dangerous sounding El Chapo Burger, HARLOWE MXM is where you can go this weekend to treat yourself.

Topping list after list as being one of Dallas’ best cocktail bars, HIDE has made a reputation for being casual and experimental with their food and drink menu. Featured on Eater Dallas and CultureMap Dallas (among others) this buzzy booze spot has also made a point to deck out their brunch options. Their specialty Brunch Drinks menu dazzles with such choices as the Yass Betch, Gin And Juice, and Rose All Day, while offering their spin on the more traditional choices like Hide’s Bloody, Michelada, and Mimosa. Don’t sleep on the food menu, either.
