On the first morning Snooze, an A.M. Eatery on Oak Lawn Avenue in Dallas was open, we decided to follow the food. What were its first few customers ordering?

6 brunch spots in Dallas for cheap mimosas

This popular brunch place now has four restaurants in Dallas-Fort Worth. Snooze has been described as a "throwback finer diner" — where the decor is "The Jetsons meets Happy Days." Each restaurant serves pancake flights, eggs, benedicts, coffees and cocktails.

Given that brunch is a popular mid-morning meal in Dallas, it isn't surprising to hear that the first three Snoozes still see hour-long waits on busy Sundays. Don't try to tell someone from Dallas that brunch is stupid.

Most people with brunch game know about Snooze. Here's a look inside the very newest one.

Pineapple upside-down pancakes are a popular pick.

A pineapple upside-down pancake comes off the griddle in the kitchen at Snooze, an A.M. Eatery on Oak Lawn Avenue in Dallas. This dish "put us on the map," a regional manager said.

The Smashed Avocado Benny is the first of two avo-involved dishes on this list.

What's in the Smashed Avocado Benny? It's an English muffin topped with smashed avocado, parmesan cheese, tomatoes, two poached eggs, smoked hollandaise and 'everything' spice. It landed with a customer on opening morning at Snooze, on Jan. 23, 2019.
