Uber-popular Colorado breakfast joint Snooze an A.M. eatery is about to open its fourth DFW location, this one in prime brunch territory: Oak Lawn.

The new restaurant at Oak Lawn Avenue and Cedar Springs Road will be 4,200 square feet of breakfast devotion (complete with a "huge patio," according to a press release), and it opens on Wednesday, Jan. 23. The eco-conscious breakfast spot first stepped into the DFW market in June 2018 with a location across from Whole Foods in Addison, eventually adding locations on West 7th in Fort Worth and on Walnut Hill Lane.

The restaurant's three DFW locations have drawn lengthy brunch lines from the get-go, and this spot, in the heart of Dallas' brunchiest neighborhood, is likely to draw similar crowds. The franchise is known for inventive pancakes, brunch cocktails and over-the-top breakfast creations, like an entire Benedict menu. Snooze also works often with local and independent farms and food-sellers; at the Addison location, you'll find everything from Empire Baking Co. bread to milk from Mill-King, a family-run dairy outside Waco.

Snooze bills itself as the eco-conscious new-school diner. The restaurant "diverts 85-95 percent of their waste from landfills by composting and recycling where facilities exist," according to a press release. "They also serve coffee in reusable mugs while you wait, use low-flow water fixtures, high efficiency lighting and Energy Star rated appliances."

The new Snooze location will be open 6:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. daily and will serve breakfast all day.
