Best of The Brunch

May 03, 2017 02:31PM ● By Dia

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but brunch is the most important meal of the weekend. We polled readers in a two-part survey on their favorite brunch destinations, honing in on best brunch bites, beverages and atmosphere. Out of 20 area establishments, seven finalists rose to the top.

Brunching used to be reserved for special occasions—raise your Bellini if you have Mother’s Day reservations this month—but not anymore. Nearly half of survey respondents enjoy brunch every month, and one in five make it part of their regular routine. Is there anything better than a bubbly mimosa and some bacon and eggs to kick off the weekend? Seize your Saturday and Sunday mornings at one of the best spots for brunch according to Southlake Style readers.

Best Brunch Overall

Prepare for your Sunday Funday to be in full force at Another Broken Egg Café. This buzzy brunch hotspot offers dozens of dishes and drinks that are worth waking up for—and then waiting in a line out the door before you actually get a taste. With nearly a third of the votes, Another Broken Egg Café won for Best Brunch Overall, followed by Old West Café and Bread Winners.

Depending on your order, Another Broken Egg Café will either kick your day into high gear or inspire you to crawl back under the covers for a nap. The menu is packed with brunch-perfect dishes ranging from waffles to burgers to, of course, a variety of egg dishes. General manager Angel Guzman says the Crabcake Benny is the local favorite. Two grilled, jumbo lump crab cakes are served on an English muffin and topped with poached eggs and Andouille-infused Hollandaise sauce. This dish alone makes the wait worth it.

Other popular options include Waffle Sliders— essentially gourmet breakfast sandwiches with Bel- giant waffles in place of the bun—and Lemon Blue- berry Goat Cheese Pancakes. This dish merges the fresh flavors of blueberry and lemon with the rich creaminess of goat cheese. It’s the stuff breakfast dreams are made of. But don’t try to replicate at home; leave it to the pros.

“Our made-to-order dishes are chef-inspired,” says Guzman. “We use the highest-quality ingredients available, whether it’s farm-fresh eggs, pure squeezed orange juice or a variety of superfoods.”

Take your brunch experience up a notch with a specialty beverage such as the Spiked Nutella Iced Latte. Cold-brew coffee, Nutella and Rum - Chata come together in a Mason jar topped off with whipped cream, a strip of crispy bacon and a beignet. Indulgent? Yes. But do you need it in your life? Also yes. “It’s a loaded treat,” Guzman says.

Another Broken Egg Café understands what brunch is meant to be: an opportunity to linger with family and friends over sumptuous food and drinks. Breakfast happens daily, but brunch is a special affair. When it comes to the area’s best brunch, Southlake Style readers say it doesn’t get better than Another Broken Egg Café. Rise and shine!
