Leading up to September's Best of Dallas® 2017 issue, we're sharing (in no particular order) our 100 Favorite Dishes, the Dallas entrées, appetizers and desserts that really stuck with us this year.

By every conceivable measure, it was the perfect Saturday morning: a breezy, cool pre-summer day, a colorful table in front of Whisk Crêpes, a cappuccino, a book. A moment of solitude before a day of people and places. And a crêpe so utterly perfect, it may as well have been served by Beyonce herself.

From the first bite to the last, Whisk's French ham crepe is a stunner. Stretchy, melty Gruyere is in every bite of the fresh, filling buckwheat crêpe. Even if this happy crêpe contained only the French ham and Gruyere, it would still be delicious — but the crème fraîche, chives and perfectly cooked, sunny side-up eggs send it into outer space.

If you can find a more perfect breakfast in Dallas, please share — but honestly, we probably won't believe you.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
