It's been 3 months since I wrote anything about DFW on this blog and I am so excited to finally do so today!
Especially because I'm writing about a family-friendly brunch spot that my family and I have just recently visited in Deep Ellum.
Now if you've been to Dallas or do live here, you'd probably know that Deep Ellum is this historic and hip area near downtown Dallas, filled with tattoo parlors and bars. In other words, it is not really our scene ;) So we don't go there very often except for taking photos.
When I learned that there's a brunch spot here in Deep Ellum, I was thrilled to check it out with my family. Because brunch spots in Greenville Ave are often too crowded and therefore not kid-friendly, while the ones on Knox and Handerson Ave could be very pricy, crowded, and intimidating for those of us with toddlers running around. So last Sunday we needed a place with a good combo of excellent food, affordable mimosas, highchair availability, and reasonable pricing. And yay! Filament was the one!
Love the industrial vibe, the high ceiling, natural light in the covered patio, and those tiles!
We started with their delicious and creamy deviled eggs. What stood out for me was the smoked pecans! I love how they add a nice crunch to the dish and balance all the creaminess.
What makes an Eggs Benedict besides the eggs? The hollandaise sauce, of course! And Filament definitely nailed it, in my opinion! Love their creole spin on this iconic sauce. The biscuits were also on point! They have a little bit of sweetness to balance all the mustard flavor and saltiness from the hollandaise sauce and the ham.
Mr. Man had the Pigs in a Quilt with sausage, sunny side up eggs, and crispy onion crunch!
What made me happy was definitely the $2 mimosas ;) We also tried their house-made ketchup that was so flavorful and fragrant, we wish they had it available for purchase in jars or somethin'.
We were sad to find out that they are no longer serving donuts, but at least the brunch menus, the ambience (love the motown music that was playing on the background), and the prices were all excellent! Next time we'll try the Shrimp & Grits, Chicken & Waffles, and their craft cocktails for sure.
