Allgood Cafe is an unassuming storefront in Deep Ellum that is funky on the inside and has a hipster vibe. After walking into this establishment, you immediately forget that you're in Dallas and wonder how you were transported to Austin with one swing of a door. The walls are decorated with vintage posters (most of them signed) and brightly colored oragami float in rows overhead. The restaurant attracts an eclectic group of diners and many people come for the live music on the weekends. The only thing not funky about Allgood Cafe is its food.

The breakfast items are classic diner foods using organic produce and fresh ingredients. Even the coffee is worth mentioning. Served in random mugs you could buy at a thrift store, the coffee is a rich French roast that is strong enough to cure a headache but smooth enough to drink black. We tried several items, including Breakfast #1, which is your basic breakfast entree that doesn't taste ordinary at all. Fluffly scrambled eggs were served alongisde black peppered bacon and oven roasted garlic potatoes. A thin, buttery biscuit accompanied this breakfast to make it a full meal. It wasn't the best biscuit we've ever had, but when you take a bite of egg, crispy peppered bacon and biscuit all together, it's exactly what you think breakfast on a Saturday morning should be.

The best thing on the table, by far, were the Buttermilk Pancakes. The pancakes were light with the perfect fluffy consistency and underlying buttermilk flavor. When smothered in butter and traditional maple syrup, one bite transports you to your childhood. They are everything a classic pancake should be.

On Tuesdays, Allgood Cafe runs a deal from 6-9pm that allows you to buy two entrees and get the less expensive one for free. The atmosphere is very casual and homey, and the prices reflect that. Whether you come in the morning and get a stack of pancakes or head here for Chicken Fried Steak and live music, you will enjoy your experience regardless. Allgood Cafe is unpretentious in every way, inviting to all kinds of people, and offers traditional American food in a non-traditional atmosphere.
