Brunching in Dallas has become a real pastime, making the weekend breakfast/lunch meal one of the most popular of the week. Restaurants competing for brunch business must offer great menus (usually filled with comfort foods and hearty breakfast favorites), a fun ambiance (preferably a patio for nice-weather dining), and the requisite brunch beverages like mimosas and Bloody Marys. An additional perk are those budget-conscious spots that offer not only belly-pleasing meals but ones that will keep your wallet full as well. Here are a few LocalSugar listings that highlight a great value as well as a pleasing brunch experience.

If you're extra hungry, be sure to add one of their appetizers on the side like their delicious French Toast Bites or their Sour Cream Coffee Cake.
