Whether you love French toast or Tex-Mex, there are restaurants where you can satiate your breakfast cravings in the morning, afternoon or late-night. list Here is a list of some of our favorite places where you can get breakfast all-day!
Maple Leaf Diner
There’s a diner here in Dallas that features food that you’ll find while visiting our neighbors up North! Maple Leaf Dinner gives customers a taste of Canada, mixed in with some American favorites. You can order a Southern classic like chicken and waffles or try out a traditional Canadian breakfast.
If you’re really trying to put your taste buds to the test, consider ordering the chicken fried steak poutine—a dish that marries a Texas staple with a Canadian favorite.

Sometimes we don’t have time to sit and enjoy the most important meal of the day. That’s why we love having places like Foxtrot around. This shop is new to Dallas but is already making waves with people around the city. The concept is to offer a more upscale version of a convenience store. Customers can come inside, grab their food and go, or they can order online and have items delivered directly to them. Stop inside the store for a sandwich or some fresh fruit, or give the delivery service a try!
UPTOWN I DIRECTIONS
There are quite a few coworking spaces across the Metroplex, but we love Hatchways because of its café! You don’t need a membership get into the Victory Park café. You can grab a bite to eat without going inside to work.
Some breakfast items like the multigrain oatmeal and berry smoothie stop being served at 11am, but you have access to the pastry bar at all hours of the day! The café also serves up its avocado toast and all day egg sandwich all day, so there are few options to choose from if you get a breakfast craving while you’re downtown.
VICTORY PARK I DIRECTIONS
Café Brazil has been serving up breakfast for nearly thirty years (the pancakes are heaven.) Fans of this Dallas mainstay come for the coffee bar, traditional Brazilian meal options and cozy feeling. It’s also an establishment that values community. Sunday through Thursday from 5-10 pm, you can even get a free meal for a child aged 12 and under, for every adult entrée purchased. The restaurant also offers a discount for teachers who come in an dine. We love a place that loves the people it serves! Most locations are open late—the one in Deep Ellum is open 24/7!

If you ever get a late-night craving after hanging out with your friends, head to Buzzbrews. It is also open 24 hours, 7 days a week. The 24 hour menu includes both breakfast and dinner items, so pick whatever suits you best. There are multiple locations in and around Dallas, from Deep Ellum to Lakewood to Victory Park to Lemmon Ave. It’s a great choice for an easy and good breakfast, whenever you’re craving it!

Earlier this month, Ellen’s served its millionth customer—so you could say they know a thing or two about good food! If you enjoy eating classic, southern comfort food, we suggest taking a trip to this downtown favorite. They love breakfast food so much that the restaurant’s tagline is, “It’s brunch o’ clock somewhere.” We agree—and we’re happy that Ellen’s offers it all-day long.
WEST END I DIRECTIONS
If you haven’t had Toasted’s All Day B.A.E and you aren’t a vegetarian or vegan, you’re missing out. It’s a toast that is layered with bacon, eggs, black beans, avocado, and queso fresco. It’s incredible.
That’s just one of the many toast options over at Toasted, an East Dallas favorite. Besides toast, the restaurant offers omelets, waffles, and other breakfast favorites. Toasted is also known for its coffee. Make sure to get your caffeine fix before you leave!
EAST DALLAS I DIRECTIONS
We love a good diner and Norma’s Cafe doesn’t disappoint. This chain of Dallas diners has been cooking up breakfast classics for more than 60 years. Their simple and homey style keeps customers coming back. Norma’s serves up traditional favorites for a great price. We suggest trying out one of their pancakes that takes up an entire plate. Dessert doesn’t really count as breakfast food, but we also think you can’t go wrong with getting a slice of pie or cake before leaving one their locations.

Mama’s Daughters’ Diner
This beloved diner opened up for business more than 60 years ago in what is now called the Design District neighborhood of Dallas. Since then, Mama’s Daughters’ Diner has opened up several locations across the Metroplex. All of them are still bringing in customers who enjoy eating their classic cooking. Breakfast is served all day, every day—literally. Mama’s is open seven days a week so make sure you stop by!

Who says diner food isn’t fresh? Lucky’s Cafe is committed to cooking food that uses ingredients that comes from local farms. The restaurant tries to serve as many farm-to-table options as they can. When you’re eating an omelette or enjoying a fresh-squeezed juice, know that you’re consuming something fresh. We love a place that puts an emphasis on using the best ingredients to make some of the best food!
UPTOWN I DIRECTIONS
Taco Heads started out as a cult favorite for our friends is Fort Worth. Late-night tacos were served in a food truck but now you can get them in downtown Fort Worth’s Cultural District or in Dallas’ Knox Henderson neighborhood. The breakfast tacos are served all day (and all-night) and we think they’re all pretty tasty. They’re even better with a side of Taco Heads’ signature chips and guac!
KNOX HENDERSON I DIRECTIONS
Since we’re in Texas, we had to share at least one Tex-Mex gem. If you’re not in the mood for a classic eggs and bacon breakfast, how about huevos rancheros? It’s just one of the all-day breakfast items you can get at E-Bar. Plus, they have drink specials every day of the week like $5 all day margaritas on Tuesdays, and $3 mimosas on Sundays! Salud!
