One of my favorite things to do during the fall is to go to brunch. For all of my fellow Texans, October presents the most beautiful and perfect weather.
Typically, temperatures reach a high of 80 and a low of 60, allowing us to brunch in around 70° temperature which is not only perfect, but also beautiful!
With the weekend just around the corner, I thought I’d share a couple of my favorite fall brunch spots in Dallas! Enjoy!

If you have not been to Parigi yet, you are in for a welcome surprise. Nestled right on Oaklawn, Parigi is modeled after Paris with a New York feel.
It has been a staple in Dallas for over 30 years and continues to attract both new and regular clientele. While the atmosphere is spectacular, the food is truly what makes this spot a local favorite.
I actually took my mom here for her birthday dinner and we all were so blown away by the food. This restaurant truly could work for almost any occasion!
Parigi is a chef-driven bistro with a menu that changes twice a month. Janice, the owner, is passionate about food and bases the menu off of recent travels across the world or inspiration from fellow expert chefs.
Parigi is conveniently located to downtown and uptown Dallas which is perfect if you live close by and/or plan to Uber! Not to mention, they source many of their menu items from local farmers, small batch cheese makers, and responsible Fisherman.
When we visited the restaurant, we tried four of their popular seasonal dishes. To start, the cheeseboard was my favorite (no surprise)! The French toast was absolutely to die for, and this is something I would split. Honestly, I think the pictures speak for themselves.
Two other items available on the lunch and dinner menu were seafood inspired dishes. The first was a Cali roll deconstructed and consists of crab and rice. This is perfect for the sushi lover wanting to get their fix!
The second seafood dish was a brioche-crusted fish that was cooked to perfection. This dish is perfect for anyone looking for something light yet full of flavor.
Rose might seem to be a summer wine, but I LOVE having it during brunch no matter what time of year. October feels like the best month to sip on rose while snuggled up on a patio. It pairs perfectly with French toast and rose gold is absolutely delicious.

Located in the Knox area, Le Bilboquet is a classic brunch staple in the Dallas/Highland Park area. Surrounded by natural light, the garden room is my favorite place to sit and the staff is incredibly accommodating.
The French American restaurant allows for a casual yet elegant setting and is perfect for a girls brunch, or even a romantic brunch date for two.
At this location, they believe in using the best available products that are locally sourced and organic whenever possible.
If you would like to go shopping after you brunch, Knox offers so many cute shops and boutiques to rummage through. My favorites include Weirs, Betty Lou, Lulu Lemon, Outdoor Voices, Trader Joe’s, Sur La Table, Paper Source & much more!
If you would rather walk off all of the delicious food you just ate, the Katy Trail is nestled right up against Knox which allows for easy access to enjoy a long stroll or bike ride.
We started brunch with their signature French toast. Surprisingly, before this, I had never ordered French toast. But at least now I can say that my first experience trying French toast is hard to beat anywhere else. The dish is crème brûlée dipped in brioche, fresh berries and bananas, topped with mascarpone whip cream.
The waitress suggested we try the cajun chicken lunch dish as it’s a staple at this restaurant. The chicken was delicious and came with fries. If you aren’t in the mood for breakfast, this would be a perfect choice!
I enjoy trying new restaurants that are not completely jam-packed with people. These two locations are perfect for an intimate and more elegant experience. Where are your favorite fall brunch spots in Dallas?
