    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

    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.

    Try the Crab Cake Sliders to start. Crab cake, fried green tomatoes, bacon & red pepper aioli. Truffled Chicken Pot Pie was amazing!

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

    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

    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

    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]

    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.

    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?
