The DFW debut of Snooze, an A.M. Eatery, a Denver-based chain known for its eclectic and innovative breakfast creations and boozy morning cocktails, has arrived. According to a release, the first location in North Texas will open in Addison on June 6.
Somewhat of a legend on the breakfast and brunch front, Snooze does twists on breakfast classics, with friendly service and an energetic atmosphere. The chain first entered Texas in 2016 with a branch in Austin, and they've since opened locations in Houston and San Antonio.
Signature dishes include pineapple upside-down pancakes, breakfast pot pie, and a "chile verde Benny" with green chili-sauced tortillas, pulled pork or barbacoa-style beef, poached eggs, and green chili hollandaise. They're big into benedicts with six options, which they call bennys. And they call sandwiches sammys. Try not to hold that against them.
Their selection of "morning cocktails" includes cocktails made with coffee, and Bloody Marys such as the one with bacon-infused Cyrus Noble Bourbon and house bloody mix.
The "Addison" location is actually Dallas, at the Village on the Parkway at 5100 Belt Line Rd. They occupy #824, which is part of a rebuilt quadrant facing the Whole Foods Market.
It seats 130 guests inside, with a large garage door that opens to bring the outdoors in, and a spacious dog-friendly patio. So it has the breakfast options of neighboring Dream Cafe and the dog-friendly profile of neighboring Lazy Dog.
In addition to local beers on tap, there's a signature Snooze Sparkling, which figures in mimosa-style cocktails such as the Palomimosa and the English Garden.
Re: coffee, Snooze has partnered with Godoy's coffee farm in Guatemala, which roasts an exclusive blend for Snooze and ships the coffee to each restaurant every week. On Earth Day, Snooze plants one tree for each of its employee on the coffee farm, which has experienced heavy deforestation.
Two more locations are in the works: at Walnut Hill Lane and US-75 and in Fort Worth, at the Left Bank mixed-use development in the West 7th Street Urban Village.
