Whistle Britches the modern chicken kitchen located in Addison, TX just north of Dallas. Food so good I had to come back multiple times to make sure it wasn’t a fluke. Ironically if I would have gone that one time Whistle Britches would be looking at a 5 out of 5. But unfortunately, Whistle Britches dropped in quality on my later visits. Find out more below.
The Eberhard opened in late 2016 and hasn’t looked back. I’ve been going back consistently since New Years when I first tried the place. From its cool and collected atmosphere to a very prompt and accommodating staff, The Eberhard is the place to be for brunch.
The omelet is well.. the omelet. it’s not going to blow you away but you won’t be disappointed either. Well executed by the kitchen staff but it’s an omelet and speaks for itself. You know why you’re here.
Now the chicken and waffles have potential but I already think its cliche as it is. Even so, I decided to give it a try. The chicken is seasoned quite well but could be much more tender. I believe it could stand a little more marination time for more tender chicken, but the chicken actually saved the dish. The waffles were very dry and brittle. I felt like I had to keep asking for the syrup to make the meal work. They have since changed their menu since I had the chicken & waffles but I’ve heard the same continues.
Now I pride myself on my shrimp and grits, so ask around. With that being said these are very good. The grits are creamy and made with love. The shrimp is cooked perfectly and nicely flavored as well. The sauce the grits sit in are an amazing compliment and really bring the dish together. My only quip is the chorizo. I was expecting some real chorizo flavor but instead got miscellaneous pieces of sausage that didn’t add much to the meal in my opinion. They should definitely work on that but I enjoyed the meal none the less.
Now as I mentioned earlier, The Eberhard has changed their menu up quite a few times. From my count, at least 3 times since I’ve started going here. Their last rendition might be one of my favorites. I’m sure the thought has crossed your mind but using a pancake as a taco shell for a breakfast taco?! Let me tell ya…. game changer. You can get your eggs cooked however you want and the taco is stuffed with bacon and sausage. Served with syrup, but if you’re anything like me you sub it for some of their homemade salsa. May not work for you, but I love it!
Smoked Trinity Hash
Saved the best for last! My favorite meal at The Eberhard is the Smoked
Trinity Hash! It has amazing flavor and tender juicy brisket. Well seasoned potatoes with a nice runny egg on top. Can’t beat it! I have to talk myself into trying other stuff I love this thing so much. The only thing I would add is a little more of the demi glace but other than that I highly recommend.
Now you all know I gots to have an A1 mimosa, and it’s safe to say Eberhard doesn’t disappoint. I’ll say this now. The Eberhard has the best mimosas in Dallas, TX. You heard it hear first. The price and experience cannot be beat!
AS you can see from their very own Instagram post they have a mimosa bar.
You get a carafe of bubbles for $8 then can dress it up however you like. You can even go glass by glass and change it up as you sip. The only catch is… the mimosa bar is only available on Sundays. If not, Sunday then you get the above mimosa carafes which bring the pain regardless.
All in all, I love this place and will be back time and time again. Thank you, Eberhard, for saving me from mediocre brunches. You guys get a Brunchaholics certified 4 out of 5!

Welcome to Remedy
Ask anyone in my close circle and they’ll tell you that brunching is my hobby. If it’s the weekend, and I’m in town, I’m brunching in Dallas. My favorite areas to explore are Uptown and Lower Greenville, so it’s no surprise I fell in love with a restaurant close to both. Remedy in Dallas is a hot spot on Greenville that deserves a weekend visit.
Like most restaurants I discover these days, I fell in love with the eatery via Instagram. Their daily posts of fresh menu items filled my feed for weeks before I was finally able to visit. Tucked between HG Sply Co and Steel City Pops, Remedy seems small at first. But after you walk in, you realize the restaurant goes far back and it seems roomy with its high ceilings. The soda fountain theme makes the place as visually eye catching as Remedy’s Instagram-worthy food.
To level the playing field between brunch eateries, I always order the chicken and waffles. Remedy’s chicken and waffles goes beyond the breakfast classic by adding Nashville Hot seasonings to their meat. Topped with fresh berries and a light syrup that I couldn’t get enough of, the staple dish did not disappoint. My brunching partner ordered the Texas Shrimp & Grits which were just as scrumptious from my healthy sample.
If you’re tired of boring mimosas for brunch, Remedy is the spot for you. Following the soda fountain theme, there are tons of unique bubbly sodas to try along with fresh cocktails. I rounded out my entree with a flavored mimosa. The price of most drinks ranged from five to 10 dollars.
Remedy is located at 2010 Greenville Avenue in Dallas, TX. Get there early for brunch served Saturday and Sunday starting at 10 am. You can make reservations online via OpenTable.

Another Broken Egg Cafe just recently opened in Pearland so I decided to check it out. It’s a part of a shopping center adding to the allure of what some call “new Pearland” near 518/Broadway and 288.
It’s a very small location and truly feels like an intimate cafe setting, staying true to their name and theme. Open 7 days a week 7am – 2pm, breakfast and lunch is served daily there, and yes… they serve mimosas and Bloody Mary’s.
I tried the regular mimosa first. Smooth. Good balance of bubbles and orange juice. They use Wycliffe champagne which is relatively cheap, but a much better taste and quality than your usual dose of Andre’ aka the $5 headache. After that I had the Orange Marmalade mimosa which was a nice switch up. It was definitely different from the usual mimosas that just use a different juice or flavor. It came with orange marmalade in the bottom and St. Germaine Elderflower liquerwith orange juice on top. It slightly reminds me of an old-fashioned. Again, definitely a different taste but it’s good and will have you feeling right so I definitely suggest you try one.
They also have Bloody Mary’s and Bellinis if that’s better suits your fancy.
Another Broken Egg Cafe has a very well-rounded menu. I decided on the Big Lucy Omelette with a side of biscuits and gravy. I know this place is new so I hope that’s why the omelette lacked anything resembling seasoning: salt, pepper, garlic — there was none of that. Luckily the salsa and Cholula provided were enough to satisfy my taste buds. The biscuits and gravy (in-house, along with in-house sausage) on the other hand were amazing. I wish I would have just gotten that as my meal instead. I’m a big fan of scratch-made food so this was a huge plus. I definitely recommend the biscuits and gravy to anyone who goes.
In conclusion, I will be back at Another Broken Egg Cafe, but I hope they see this post and make a few improvements in the kitchen. With that being said, Another Broken Egg Cafe gets a 3 out of 5.
