Dallas is a brunch-happy city with seemingly endless restaurant options -- regardless of what our resident nay-sayer Britton Peele thinks. Pick your neighborhood or cuisine and there's bound to be a menu to satisfy. Same goes for your budget.
Because we believe paying $5 for a single mimosa is borderline robbery, we've rounded up five places where you can get bubbles and juice on the cheap.
Sundown at Granada
This vegetarian-friendly restaurant on Lower Greenville serves mimosas for $2 by the glass or $9 by the carafe Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you're particular about the champagne-to-orange juice ratio, just ask your server for the juice on the side. Stand out brunch bites at Sundown include Wake-Up Wraps (bacon or brisket, scrambled eggs, black beans, white cheddar cheese) and Hammered Goat Frittata, which comes loaded with drunken mushrooms, goat cheese, mozzarella, rosemary and truffle oil.
- Sundown at Granada, 3520 Greenville Ave., Dallas.
This family-owned eatery in Oak Cliff has been offering 99-cent mimosas since it opened in 2015. It's an appropriate beverage to order here considering the size of its breakfast menu. Though the 99-cent mimosa is only available on Sundays from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., Jed's Grill offers plates such as chicken and waffles, tres leches French toast, and huevos rancheros every day from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mimosas are $4 every other day of the week.
- Jed's Grill, 1001 W. Jefferson Blvd., Dallas.
Eastbound and Down Icehouse
This Smokey and the Bandit-themed bar on Ross Avenue is one of the newer additions to Dallas' scene, but it's become a cozy spot for regulars and dog owners because of its large beer garden and off-leash dog area. On weekends, bartenders serve up mimosas by the pint for $2 each. That's right, 16 ounces of bubbles and juice -- or just bubbles with a splash of juice if you ask nicely. The deal runs noon to 4 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Eastbound and Down also has a small menu of eats, including breakfast tacos and biscuits and gravy.
- Eastbound and Down Icehouse, 3826 Ross Ave., Dallas.
The Libertine Bar
This Lower Greenville stalwart is locally renowned for its rum selection, but brunch is a cheap diner's dream when it comes to both food and drink. For $10, patrons can get a sizable serving of biscuits and gravy, which comes with eggs and bacon or sausage, and pulled pork and grits, among other options. Wash it down with $3 champagne drinks, which include mimosas, Bellinis and kir royales (champagne with raspberry liqueur). A carafe costs $13 and can be ordered with juices, such as peach, pineapple, orange, and cranberry, on the side for DIY mixing. The Libertine serves brunch Saturdays and Sundays 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
- The Libertine Bar, 2101 Greenville Ave., Dallas.
The Cedars Social
You'll want to stay a while to enjoy this next offering. Since bottomless mimosas are technically illegal, this cocktail joint in the Cedars neighborhood sells them for $9.95 a head and offers 1-cent refills. Finally a use for all those pennies in your pocket! The deal is available Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and pairs well with bites like shrimp and grits, eggs Benedict, or house-made turkey hash.
The Cedars Social, 1326 S. Lamar St., Dallas.
