Where Dallas Celebrities Eat Breakfast

See how a few local notables start their day.

Jamie Benn

Dallas Stars Forward

“My favorite place to eat breakfast in Dallas is The Common Table. I don’t get to go out to breakfast a lot during hockey season, but I always try to make it down there when I have a free morning. I’ve had a lot of the items on the menu, but my favorite is the Classic Benedict.”

Derek Holland

Texas Rangers Pitcher

“The Original Pancake House in Dallas. It’s where I go if I’m pitching. I always get the same thing: two eggs over easy, bacon, hash browns, and two blueberry pancakes. It’s so delicious that just thinking about it makes me wanna go get it. The place is great, the people are greater, and the food is flat-out amazing.”

Cynthia Izaguirre

Co-anchor of WFAA News 8 

“My husband, our 3-year-old twins, and I love to eat breakfast out on Saturday mornings, because it’s a great way to start the weekend. My favorite place is Main Street Bistro & Bakery in historic Grapevine. I usually order the Le Parisien: scrambled eggs, applewood-smoked bacon, breakfast potatoes, and their award-winning croissant.”

Charlotte Jones Anderson 

Executive Vice President, Chief Brand Officer Dallas Cowboys

“I eat breakfast at Kozy Kitchen on McKinney Avenue. I order the Bowl of Doom with buffalo and poached eggs, and a side of gluten-free pancakes.”

Mike Rawlings

Dallas Mayor

“I like to eat breakfast at the Original Market Diner on Harry Hines Boulevard. I go for a simple plate of two eggs over easy, two sausages, and a side of hash browns.”

Sarah Jaffe


“I do starch with a side of starch. Early morning taquitos from Whataburger. All breakfast burritos, for that matter. I like a nice late breakfast at John’s Cafe on Greenville Avenue
or occasionally pancakes at Cindi’s.”
