The Best Breakfast Side Dishes in Dallas

By D Magazine |

Best Croissant

Main Street Bakery
Being flaky is good if you are talking about croissants. And the buttery, crescent-shaped rolls fresh from Main Street Bakery’s oven melt in your mouth without splintering into piles on the plate.


Best Bacon

AllGood Cafe
This Deep Ellum fave’s black pepper-crusted bacon, with its deep smoky flavor, steals the show. It’s always perfectly baked: the right balance of crisp and meaty.


Best Muffin

Bread Winners Cafe & Bakery
The 15 varieties of fresh-baked muffins make this cafe popular with the Uptown crowd. But we think the cranberry orange muffin is the ideal blend of tart and sweet.


Best Sausage

Kuby’s processes its own meat: all-natural coarse-ground pork with no fillers. A hint of sage is just the right spice, making this patty pork perfection. 6601 Snider Plaza.


Best Bear Claw

Cindi’s New York Style Deli
It’s the last thing you might expect to find at Cindi’s New York Style Deli, but there it glistens in the pastry case: the best bear claw in town. The traditional bear claw has almond paste and sometimes raisins, but Cindi’s does two über-rich flavors: apple, like the ones you see at doughnut shops; and cheese. 11111 N. Central Expwy. 214-739-0918. Multiple locations.
