The massively popular brunch chain Snooze an A.M. Eatery is bringing its creative breakfast twists to its most central location in Dallas yet: Oak Lawn.

The Denver-based chain, which made its Dallas debut in Addison in June, will open a restaurant at 3211 Oak Lawn Ave, near the intersection of Cedar Springs Road, in what was previously Hypnotic Sushi, which had been closed for some time.

A spokesperson confirms that the restaurant will open in late 2018 or early 2019.

Founded in Denver in 2006, Snooze is a legend on the breakfast and brunch front, with its culinary innovation, energetic atmosphere, and friendly service. They've been colonizing Texas, first entering the state in 2016 with a branch in Austin.

They've since opened locations in Austin, Houston, and San Antonio, where they've been universally met with lines out the door.

Oak Lawn joins two other locations in the works for the Dallas area: Walnut Hill Lane and US-75, which will open in fall 2018; and at the Left Bank mixed-use development in Fort Worth.

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. In a fun twist, you can order a benedict duo or a flight of three pancakes in different flavors.

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.

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.

They're also environmentally proactive, diverting a high percentage of their waste via composting, using low flow water fixtures, high efficiency lighting, and energy star rated appliances.

They rotate in specials and seasonal items regularly, most recently in June when they debuted the "sunburst pancake" made from a buttermilk lemon poppyseed batter topped with lemon anglaise, blackberries, citrus mascarpone, and toasted almonds; and the smashed avocado benny, an English muffin topped with smashed avocado & green chili, parmesan cheese, tomatoes, poached eggs, and smoked cheddar hollandaise.
