They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, especially if you’re mixing business with your migas and mochas. Here are the five best spots in Dallas for a breakfast meeting.
1 CBD Provisions
t helps that this Big D hotspot is located in the immensely hip Joule Hotel (where you will surely recommend you’re visiting client to stay), but breakfast at CBD is worth a visit even if you aren’t a hotel guest. The house-made sausage should be an add-on to any morning meal you choose, and if you’ve never tried grits for breakfast, this would be the place to get hooked on the Southern breakfast staple.
1530 Main Street, Dallas
Located inside the Ritz-Carlton Dallas, Fearing’s just feels like the kind of place where deals get done. Tables surround the picturesque open kitchen in the main dining area, but if the weather is nice take your meeting outside to the beautifully landscaped Ocaso patio, where tables are set amid towering trees and peaceful water features.

3 Village Baking Company
Dallas’ best boulangerie doesn’t have many tables to tuck into for a business meeting, but for a taste of the best bread and pastries in Dallas, it can’t be beat. Meet here for coffee and a croissant, or splurge and have the pain au chocolat instead. After having much success with their University Blvd. location, owners Clint and Kim Cooper recently opened this Lower Greenville outpost and have upped the menu to offer espresso drinks and sandwiches and quiches.

4 Grand Met at the DFW Grand Hyatt
Located in Terminal D at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, the Grand Met is not only a great spot to meet associates based in Fort Worth or clients in town on a layover, but it’s also a fabulous restaurant in and of itself. The elegant restaurant will let you forget you are in an airport; their fresh-pressed "immune juice," with orange, pineapple and ginger, is a light and refreshing start to the perfect power breakfast.

5 Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek
By night, the Mansion, under the helm of executive chef Bruno Davaillon, is one of the most romantic spots in the city. In the light of day, it’s where deals get done, especially in the early a.m. The restaurant serves haute Texas cuisine, such as its Texas Breakfast, complete with eggs, homemade buttermilk biscuits, red-eye gravy, and jalapeño sausage.
