Birthday Lunch or Brunch Suggestions-Dallas

I am throwing my mom a surprise birthday for her and her 10 closest girl friends!
Looking for a cute/boutiquey/trendy place preferably to throw her a lunch or brunch party in Dallas
(relatively reasonable, I am on a budget!)
A place with a private room or area is preferable as well but not necessary

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

  1. If you're looking for an intimate place, Adelmo's on Cole has a second floor and a very nice lunch menu. That would be my suggestion.

      +1 for Adelmo's. Excellent suggestion.

    2. I continue to enjoy Rise No 1 - perfect for your need. Both sweet and savory souffles, the sweet ones are more budget friendly for an afternoon party of tea/coffee and a beautiful souffle.

        Recently attended a birthday lunch at Rise for a friend of my mom's 60th birthday. It was great, the food is fantastic and perfect for a ladies' lunch. Call early to get the big table!!!

          Third the Rise suggestion ... my favorite sweet souffle there is the bread pudding. They also do individual French presses that are big enough for 2-3 moderate drinkers.

          That big table is made of vintage or antique Belgian school desks (you can open them and look inside as I recall). It's sheltered, so feels almost like a separate room ... perfect for a gathering like yours, and you also have a view of the open kitchen from one side of the table (kinda fun to watch).

          Between the food, the decor, and all the things you can buy, Rise is definitely unique in Dallas and a must-try for anyone who lives here.
