There are many places in Dallas to grab brunch but did you know that there are more than 330 restaurants that welcome pets and their owners? An impressive number but it makes choosing where to take Fido for brunch difficult. Luckily, we have selected the 10 best brunch venues in the whole of Dallas.

Short for a blacksmith who was the previous tenant, the Smithy on Henderson welcomes dogs on pet-friendly tables on the patio. They have a special brunch menu that features dishes such as porridge, salmon benedict, avocado toast, farmers’ omelet, etc.
You can quench your thirst with bottled beers, local drafts, and craft cocktails. They also run weekly specials (brunch is served from 10 AM to 3 PM on Saturdays) and host events. Mind you, the place is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays and they open at 4.30 PM on workdays.

Established back in 1974, Chelsea Corner has been synonymous with “delicious food, craft cocktails, and neighborhood atmosphere” for decades in Dallas. Their Boozy Brunch menu includes such drinks as Aperol Spritz, S’mores Espresso Martini, and Irish Coffee.
Dog lovers will find the back patio most alluring, as its 2,500 square feet boast 150 standing spots and 90 seats. Guests can watch sports at 5 large HD screens, while their pet dogs caper around, making canine friends.

Snooze is a breakfast and brunch Dallas restaurant where folks can have everything from a latte to burritos but pancakes are their signature dish that costs $11.50. The eatery is located in
North Dallas, in the Vickery Meadow neighborhood and is open every day from 6.30 in the morning.
Like many other restaurants on our list, Snooze an A.M. Eatery has a large patio where dogs are welcome (if you’re lucky enough to find a free table). However, you should be a conscientious owner and prevent your pet from bothering other guests who came without a pet.

Even though the next restaurant on our list is located in Frisco, the service area of local vets reaches as far north as Prosper. This means you won’t have to worry about your pooch’s health while you try out dishes in this “little slice of Australia” in Dallas.
Keep in mind, though, that they don’t take reservations and that 90 minutes is the maximum sitting time. You can choose between two menus: Breaky (e.g. House Made Granola or Eggs Benny) and Lunch (e.g. the Chicken Sanga or Grilled Salmon).

Saturday and Sunday from 10 AM to 3 PM is the perfect time to explore the brunch menu at Whistle Britches’ location in Dallas. The menu features everything from starters, such as buttermilk biscuits to savory sides, such as sour cream & scallion potato salad.
Since 2016, Chef Omar Flores has been serving soul food made from farm-fresh ingredients that he had imbibed with culinary love. Even canines can feel his passion if you bring your pet to the patio where the animal will find the corn hole game quite amusing.

Advertising itself as a “neighborhood restaurant” Henry truly is a place patrons keep coming back to. On the weekends, brunch is served from 9 AM to 4 PM and the menu is rich, to say the least. They have a huge wine selection ranging from champagne to rose.
They offer vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free food, so every dog lover will find something appealingly appetizing. The street-side tables are pet-friendly, so be sure to stop by for brunch with Fido when in the vicinity (perhaps visiting the nearby Dallas Museum of Art).

Although Yolk has another location in Dallas and an additional one in Fort Worth, the Preston center venue is by far the pet-friendliest. Your four-legged friend is welcome to join you at the outdoor table but keep in mind that the place is busy as soon as they open at 7 AM.
The Yolk is a true breakfast & brunch place, as the latest they are open is 3 PM. Although some patrons find them pricey, the dishes are innovative and the food is good quality. In addition, they offer premium coffee blends from top local roasters.
2900 Greenville Ave.

Open every day from 8 AM, Halcyon was established in 2002. Since then, they have built a reputation of a relaxed eatery with a lounge-like atmosphere that welcomes dogs. Their outdoor pet-friendly tables are ideal for sipping a beverage while your dog is lying near your feet.
The drinks menu ranges from espresso drinks to wines and beers, while brunch is served on Saturday and Sunday from the opening hour to two in the afternoon. Halcyon is suitable both for a business brunch, as well as hanging out with friends and chatting over a meal.

If you ever walk your dog near White Rock Lake Park, then Goodfriend is the place to drop by for brunch. They have a wacky menu divided into two sections that reflect the jovial mood of the staff: “Breakfast” and “Not breakfast.” They also offer a kids’ menu that Fido might approve of.
At Goodfriend’s they don’t just welcome dogs on the patio but they provide mutts with water bowls. It is no surprise that Dallasites have frequently commended both the service and the food here (burgers, wings, sandwiches, etc.).

Don’t let the name fool you, as Bread Winners is a proper restaurant with a huge brunch menu. In it, you will find bacon pancakes and avocado toast, to name a few dishes. Apart from the Uptown location, they have two more venues in Dallas and one more in Plano.
All locations have pet-friendliness in common, as the spacious outdoor patio is open for dogs. In summer, it helps a lot that the patio is shaded and the welcoming staff will bring a bowl for your pet at request.
Brunch is a rather special meal, as people from all walks of life enjoy it. If you live in the “Cowboy Capital of the World” and own a pet dog, then you have hundreds of brunch joints to choose from. We have narrowed that choice for you to the 10 best dog-friendly brunch options in Dallas.
