Mockingbird Station, the mixed-use center at Mockingbird and US-75, has a quartet of new shops coming online, one an intriguing restaurant centered entirely on brunch.
Called 360 Brunch House, it's going into the former Edith's Bistro space at 5331 E. Mockingbird Lane, #160, where it will open in the spring. It's a spinoff of the original location which opened in Mansfield in 2019. A release says it will serve "only high-quality dishes, consistently prepared by genuine people." None of your artificial people at this place.
The menu includes omelets, skillets (served on brunch potatoes with two eggs any style and choice of toast, biscuit, or mini pancake), benedicts, breakfast tacos, breakfast burritos, avocado toast, hummus avocado toast, an acai bowl, a breakfast-stuffed avocado, and breakfast "sammies" including a $17 "Good Morning Sammy" with sausage, bacon, cheddar cheese, scrambled eggs, layered on French toast.
There are eight varieties of French toast and 11 varieties of pancakes that include:
- lemon poppy
- cheesecake, loaded with cheesecake bites and graham cracker crust
- bacon pancakes with bacon bits, topped with bacon jam
- Oreo, topped with icing and chocolate
- lingonberry, with lingonberries imported from Sweden
- chocolate chip
- fruity, with strawberries & blueberries
- banana Foster
Most pancakes are $12 to $13; there's also a pancake flight where you can get three flavors for $16.
Other new openings at the center include:
StretchLab: Opening in spring 2022, StretchLab is a unique wellness concept offering customized assisted-stretch sessions. Located at 5319 E. Mockingbird Lane, Suite 122, StretchLab offers assisted stretching to those who have weary, knotted muscles to improve flexibility, relieve pain, and correct imbalances in the body.

Sandbox VR: Get ready because the future of gaming is coming to Mockingbird Station ® this year. Sandbox VR is bringing an immersive metaverse experience and adding something new to the shopping and dining destination. Sandbox VR is a futuristic VR experience for groups of up to six participants, where they can see and physically interact with everyone inside, just like the real world. The Hong Kong and Silicon Valley-based company, founded by CEO Steve Zhao, created technology that makes participants feel as if they are in a blockbuster action movie. The experience is conducted in a retail environment instead of the internet, providing a feeling of transformation patrons can't get anywhere else. Patrons will be able to transport to multiple different virtual worlds where they can experience the action. Thanks to Hollywood motion capture cameras, 3D precision body trackers, custom hardware, and haptic suits, customers will be able to get a feeling of transformation that they can’t get anywhere else, allowing them to temporarily forget reality. Sandbox VR combines sophisticated "motion capture in real-time with virtual reality technology to create a new medium that is the closest thing to the Star Trek holodeck that exists." Sandbox VR's original worlds are meant to be experienced together with others. Whether it's a journey to space or another adventure, there's something about a thrilling Sandbox VR experience that transforms relationships. Visit 5321 E. Mockingbird Lane, Suite 110 to experience the action.
