Sunny-Side Up: 6 Dallas Brunch Restaurants

Whether you prefer food from the breakfast side of the menu or can’t wait to get your hands on a non-egg dish, there’s nothing quite like a great Dallas brunch.

For brunch with a French accent, hit this hot spot for delectable lemon-ricotta griddle cakes, or a ham and gruyere galette topped with an egg. Tip: Ask for pommes frites in place of breakfast potatoes. 87 Highland Park Village, Ste. 200, 214-420-3900. www.bistro31dallas.com

A small menu filled with winners makes it only slightly easier to choose a favorite. But crab-cake eggs Benedict or the bacon and egg burger are both good places to start. Try a made-to-order Bloody Mary filled with choices of unique garnishes, like beef jerky and fresh avocado. 5000 Belt Line Rd., Ste. 775, Addison, 972-392-9663. www.kennyswoodfiredgrill.com

"Next Food Network Star" Season Four runner-up Lisa Garza brings her Southern sensibilities to this fun brunch destination.

Any meal of the day, it simply can’t be beat. 2929 Henderson Ave., 214-827-9900, www.sissyssouthernkitchen.com

Innovative cuisine is an understatement at this staple where diners “ooh” and “ahh” over duck-fat biscuits, house-made kolaches and Teresa’s chilaquiles, along with a long list of daily specials. Save room for a piece of fudge brownie pie. 614 W. Davis St., 214-943-1883. www.bolsadallas.com

If all-you-can-eat is a top phrase in your vocabulary, this spectacular buffet features fresh seafood, prime rib, made-to-order omelets, waffles and pancakes, as well as two entire tables of desserts. Plus, unlimited Bloody Marys and mimosas are included in the price. Inside InterContinental Dallas, 15201 Dallas Parkway, Addison, 972-386-6000. www.icdallas.com
