Saturday brunch in Dallas

Can anyone recommend a good place serving brunch on Saturday in downtown/uptown, or at least south of LBJ? No Mexican/Southwest though, we routinely eat at Blue Mesa/Mattito's. And we love Bread Winners. Something like Birraporetti’s in Arlington (not the best, but a decent spread), although buffet not required. Bottomless mimosas are a plus.
Also, is Ciaudad going to open up somewhere else? Still confused how they could close.

      I've never tried Ziziki or Terellis, although looks like they're only Sunday brunches. I have tried La Duni and Cafe Brazil and love them both, but kinda fit into the Mexican rubric, although I realize they're South American.

        Every year I come to Dallas for the North Texas Irish Festival, and I hit Cafe Brazil 3-4 times each visit. I would love for them to come to Memphis, but they haven't even gone to Fort Worth yet!

          yes, good stuff. I'm kinda suprised they haven't gone to a new city too. They're all over the place in Dallas.

        I WANT to like Cafe Brazil. I like their menu and we used to go all of the time on weekends but maybe that was our mistake. It seems when they are rushed during brekfast or lunch, the food kinda gets thrown together and service can be spotty.

        It's almost impossible to find a good Dallas resto for Saturday or Sunday breakfast that isn't packed.

      3. Try Cafe Toulouse. Good French bistro

        1. I think Taverna has a very good brunch on Saturday and Sunday. They have bottomless mimosas, too. Here is the web site:

            Love Taverna! They also have bottomless bellinis.

          2. I still love the original Dream Cafe for brunch in the quadrangle, although their patio has shrunk. Forget La Duni - we starve waiting for our food to arrive.

            1. I was pretty sad about Ciudad closing, too. But, you can still get those $1.00 margaritas at the Sunday Brunch at Monica's Aca Y Alla. The food is no where near as good, though.
