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 six 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.
So maybe a pizzeria doesn't scream "brunch!" But did you hear they have $1 mimosas? Cane Rosso locations region-wide offer this drink deal, but the menu of eats may vary from place to place. The Cane Rosso at White Rock Lake, for example, advertises several dishes for brunch, such as the Hylander (meatballs, marinara, and mozzarella on a waffle with fried potatoes) and the Mother Cluckin' Bastard (crispy fried chicken, hot soppressata, bacon marmalade and habanero maple syrup on a bacon biscuit). There is also a breakfast pizza, if you feel like sticking to what the restaurant does best. Every Cano Rosso serves brunch on weekends from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Maracas Cocina Mexicana
You don't even have to order a brunch dish to get this next deal. Maracas Cocina Mexicana serves plenty of lunch fare alongside $1 mimosas on Saturdays and Sundays between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Think queso and guacamole, nachos, tortilla soup, tacos, quesadillas and more. If you're craving A.M. eats, Maracas serves Tex-Mex brunch staples, such as migas, huevos rancheros, enchiladas rancheras, and chilaquiles, as well as several types of pancakes and omelets.
- Maracas Cocina Mexicana, 2914 Main St., Dallas.
