    The beignets are a bit on the crunchy side. There's no doughy goodness like you would get in a doughnut- just crunch. The lattes are good but luke warm. If you want it hot be sure to tell them.

    NoWait, the app shows parties, & wait time. We shopped the arts district, & referred to NoWait checking what # we were in line & minutes left to wait. So relaxing to wait without worrying! Food A+

    Fruit is always fresh and delicious. Lots of vegetarian options for brunch. One of my favorite places :-)and make sure to use call ahead seating, it gets real during weekend brunch.

    It was wonderful. It's always so full but the service is quick. So my assumption that when people go they STAY! Buffalo Mac and Cheese was referred and delivered cheesy goodness

    They need to work on service. Like big time. We love the food but this is our third bad experience with service. And we're good tippers! Waited 20 minutes for our coffee. No plates for out app.

    Today I was disappointed. The pancakes were dry, bacon was soggy, the coffee tasted sour and kind of burnt. The beignets were pretty good, but in no way "amazing". Their success might be hurting them?

    2 words....Chicken & Waffles! Also, gotta try the Duck Poutine appetizer...while it's not traditional Poutine with cheese curds, it's still a must try!

    Great food and coffee. A bit pricey but worth it. It's my favorite place to go and eat when I need a break from the usual and to treat myself.

    They started out serving breakfast and lunch only, so they know their stuff: Buckwheat, buttermilk and gingerbread pancakes. Mega breakfast tacos. And that coffee. Read more

    Arguably the best spot for affordable brunch in the city, and home to Dallas' first and only La Marzocco brew machine. Order the beignets to start. Read more

    The fish and chips weren't good to me. Although I didn't ask, the waitress didn't charge me for it. I thought that was very nice. I will go again and try something else.

    Pancakes were great. Ginger was my favorite. The fruit parfait was amazing and the banana creme pie french toast was stellar.

    Mocha and cappuccino are amazing...however this us not the place to go in the summer. Unbearably hot and makes for a miserable brunch.
  • Shelly T.
    Great server and outdoor seating, but just be prepared to wait 45 mins for a table and another hour for your food.

    There can be a line but grab a coffee at the bar and sit at the tables outside to make your weekend right!

    Awesome diner in Bishop Arts. Download the app NoWait, they do not take reservations but the app will put you on the waiting list before you get there.

    I have about 9 years experience in the coffee industry and this is probably the most impressive coffee shop I've been to.

    The fried chicken is pretty solid, great service, & good cocktails. Sadly, to me the Mac & Cheese was not that great.

    Order your latte extra hot. The flavors are wonderful but they tend to not steam the milk hot enough for me

    It took eleven minutes to be acknowledged and I was at the bar. Other customers arriving after me and staff were waited on before me.

    If you go for the pancake sampler, be aware that it is enough for a family of 5. Yummy, but massive.

    If the only thing they served was their Buffalo Mac 'N Cheese, it'd still be 1 of our favorites, because it's that good. [Eater 38 Member]

    Bartenders on Sunday suck! If I ever see them at my bar they will be ignored. Those hipsters need to learn what service means.

    Duck hash is one of a kind with a red sauce that pulls it all together.

    I can recommend the Duck Hash. Ask for it with the eggs 'sunny side'
