Best Breakfast in Dallas?

I love going out for breakfast but I'm looking to expand my repertoire of breakfast joints in the North Dallas/Plano area. Any suggestions? I usually end up at Cafe Brazil or Original Pancake House...

  1. There is a place in Lewisville off of 121 called Ham and Eggs that is fantastic. Huge portions grest Biscuits and Gravy the Pancakes are Amazing. There is usually a wait on the week-ends but it is worth it.

      Ham & Eggs is off of 3040. Little Gus Cafe in Plano @ Legacy & Coit. Or Local Diner in Coppell.

    2. Have you tried Poor Richard's in Plano? I wasn't impressed by the Original Pancake House

        1. Breadwinner's has a nice breakfast, but I haven't been to the Plano location.

          1. If you want decent breakfast at a great price...check out J's on Midway about a block south of Beltline. It's a hole in the wall and they only take cash, but the food is great....home fries, biscuits and gravy, ham steaks....reminds me of the breakfasts my grandmother used to make.


            1. "The Egg & I" is the best breakfast in DFW.

              A big favorite from Colorado, just broke here in DFW with local owners, so the quality is superb.

              It's located near Arapaho and The ND Tollway.
              15203 Knoll Trail Drive
              Dallas, TX 75248
              (469) 375-0750

              They have amazing breakfast and lunch.

              Benedicts, Skillets and Scrambles, Omlettes & Frittatas, Pancakes, Waffles & French Toast.

              The Hazelnut coffee is to die for.

              Also really good lunches. Deli Sandwiches, Salads & Soups

              I'm not the owner, just a big fan!

              I keep a menu here at my house.

              I'm going this Sunday.

              1. Try Chez Moi in Frisco. It is right off Preston, not far from Krispy Kreme. Great eggs benedict, crepes, etc. Brunch served all day.

                1. allgood cafe in deep ellum has amazing pancakes and coffee!

                  1. I love a good breakfast, and there are some great choices around town. Some shiny, some not so shiny.

                    The Mecca -- An old Dallas standard. Big breakfast, made fast. Pancakes are great, the biscuits and gravy wonderful. Huge homemade cinnamon rolls, bountiful omelets. Shy away from the migas. 10422 Harry Hines Blvd, Dallas

                    Original Pancake House -- Home of the fabled Dutch Baby. A delicious German pancake, that is similar to a proper Yorkshire pudding dusted with powdered sugar and lemon. They have a bazillion variations on the pancake and nice egg dishes. locations across Texas

                    Herrera's -- All hail the old and burned location. There are still a few of these wonderful TexMex Kaaba. The original was located on Maple and featured in national geographic. I like the location on Josey for a good breakfast on Sundays. Migas, good old over easy with a side of bean, their tasty, thick homey tortillas (they are the same ones the old lady was making when you walked in the door of the original location). Ask for Edward at Josey locale, tell him Steve sent ya... he will know. OH ask what the cooks are eating.

                    Mama's Daughter's Diner -- Just simple good breakfast. Fluffy omelets, equally light pancakes, sides you would expect... all served by a caricature of what a waitress should look like. Several Dallas locations, I frequent the one on Royal a few times a year.

                    Cafe Brazil -- Choose your favorite location (I prefer the Deep Ellum location because its across the street from Dallas Mozzarella Cheese Factory and Rudolph's Meat Market) and order up. The coffee choices are wonderful and you refill your own cup at your leisure. This location is excellent for people watching and French Toast. I especially love the spinach crepes served with a spicy cream sauce and a side the home style potatoes.

                    I could go on but I will be fair and allow some space for others, but I can quickly blurt out some other great names... La Madeleine, Kathleen's Sky Diner, Deli News and Cindi's.

                      Raven's Grille, Euless, is probably our favorite and has a wonderful following. They have a great Sunday brunch, but we usually use the regular menu. You can order a Bloody Mary, etc, after 10:30 on Sunday...LOL.

                      1. re: dlcole

                        I'd have to say Dream Cafe is one of the best Breakfasts in Dallas, it's in the same strip mall as Orginal Pancake House

                    2. Try Ballard Street Cafe in historic downtown Wylie. Food made to order, great service and small town appeal. Try the Chicken Fried Steak and eggs. You can cut it with a fork and it's not just all crust. Whatever you order you won't go away hungry.
