Top Review: “This location will always be dear to me. They’ve kept the original architecture of what seems to have been an old building designed to transport you to a quaint cafe in the French Quarter in New Orleans. My favorite part: the atrium. You feel like you’re sitting in the middle of a Disney story book. Gorgeous succulents shelved on the walls, vines creeping through the staircases, glass sliding doors to add some intimacy. It’s just adorable. Take a friend here who hasn’t experienced the Uptown location. It’s just lovely. Food: The friendly staff brings over a complimentary selection of cakes/breads for the table. BW does amazing and I mean amazing pastries. The farmers scramble is a great brunch choice, add mushrooms to it for an even better time. Also, order a side of their bacon. Do it.”Semhar M.

Top Review: “Wow, what a find! This is my new breakfast place I Dallas. I got there late around 9am and the place was packed. However, I walked and was promptly seated and the waitress immediately brought me coffee and a menu. A couple minutes later my order placed and figured it was going to be awhile…wrong…maybe 5 minutes and I was server the largest portions anyone could ever want. Did I mention the waitress…she kept my coffee filled without even being asked and that is almost rare anymore. I can’t wait until tomorrow morning!”Gary L.

Top Review: “Our waitress, Gizmo, was so much fun! Oh, she was also extremely helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, and patient with a table of travellers who were new to their vast and interesting menu. The food was fantastic. We got a meat lover’s omelette, chicken fried steak, Norma’s Favorite Breakfast, and of course, a Big Ol’ Cinnamon Roll. You may want to order one of these bad boys for the whole table, but don’t skip it. The only thing missing is a treadmill. We will be back before we leave town.”Bobby P.
