The Dream Cafe

2800 Routh St. Dallas, TX 75201 | East Dallas & Lakewood | 214-954-0486

Location Description:

The Dream Cafe was opened in January 1988 by chef/owner Mary O'Brien. "The Dream" is still true to its principles of healthy and organic cuisine anticipated by Ms. O'Brien some 20 years ago, and includes, but is not limited to, vegan and vegetarian specialties. Brunch has been a Dream Cafe specialty from the beginning, with many guests enjoying mimosas and "Cloud Cakes" on the patio. The menu has expanded to include many more savory dishes as well as indulgent desserts. From carnivore to vegan, kids to late-night daters, this busy spot in the Quadrangle offers fare to please any diner -- except those on a tight budget -- with an idiosyncratic menu that ranges from burgers dripping in cheese to the Square Meal, a platter of organic black beans, brown rice and steamed vegetables. There are real grand slam breakfasts, elegant dinners such as the noodle bowl served with a spring roll perched atop two chopsticks and new takes on standards (Dream Café's hummus is a rich paste served with crispy herb pita chips). The outdoor playground and late hours only sweeten the deal.
