The Grape has been a Dallas gem for over 40 years, and it’s not going anywhere. Known for its European charm, consistent cuisine, and of course that tasty burger, The Grape is one of our favorite places to dine, especially for brunch.

This charming neighborhood bistro has earned a spot on several “best brunch” lists, and we agree. Small, cozy, and quaint, it’s the perfect setting for an enjoyable Sunday with friends and family. On pretty days, the patio is the perfect spot for people watching on Lower Greenville.

The “Sophie’s Choice” of brunch, right next to breakfast vs. lunch, is always whether to go with a mimosa or a bloody mary. While The Grape certainly serves both well, you should at least start with one bloody mary, and here’s my argument:

There is no better way to start your brunch than with a loaded bloody mary.

As for the breakfast vs. lunch dilemma, they don’t make it easy on you, and the main reason is the burger. The Grape has received praise for their burger many times over and famously received “Best Burger in Texas” by Texas Monthly. It’s even listed on the menu with that very title, so it’s impossible to refuse temptation.

Classic Burger - 10 oz. freshly ground patty, homemade peppered bacon, Vermont white cheddar, Nathan's horseradish half-sour pickles, and dijonaise on a toasted pain au lait bun with housemade frites.

Another famous menu item offered during brunch is their Mushroom Soup.

As delicious as the burger {and the soup} may be, the breakfast items are equally yummy.

The fried chicken biscuit is served on a jalapeno cheddar biscuit and topped with cheddar cheese and honey butter; napa slaw on the side.

Another popular item is "The Haystack," which consists of röesti potatoes, grilled tomatoes, half-scrambled Vital Farms eggs, muenster cheese, avocado, and sriricha.

Perhaps the best route to go is to grab a friend at the table and split a breakfast and lunch item. Or, just come back every weekend! Brunch is served on Sundays only, from 10:30am until 2:00pm.

The Grape is also open nightly for dinner at 5:30pm, serving up seasonal chalkboard selections and a consistent menu of classic favorites. Their awesome happy hour begins at 4:30pm on Monday-Friday and features $2 beers, $3 well drinks, $6 Ruby Mules, ½ price glasses of wine, and substantial appetizers ranging from $2 to $15, with most falling around the $6 mark.
