Contemporary American
Our restaurant is walk in only. During the weekdays there are typically no wait times, on the week-ends we do have wait times, but they are usually 15-30 minutes. You may call the restaurant if you have a large party and for those we require one check per table and add gratuity.
The Dream Café has been proud to filter coffee, not people, for over 30 years. We offer Healthy Global Comfort food made from scratch.
The atmosphere is casual, eclectic and welcoming, the cocktail list is fun and sophisticated and the menu offers a wide selection to please any mood and taste. Dream has been called a "hidden gem" and has stayed true to its original roots of serving unique dishes with a fresh-healthy twist. It has been voted: "Best Brunch", "Best Patio" and "Kid Friendly" and "Dog Friendly.
We moved to our new location on McKinney Avenue, with a trolley stop in front of us, and we have a courtyard oasis for those looking for a quieter experience. We hope to see you soon!

    My husband and I had a delicious brunch at Dream Cafe. We started off with some NOLA beignets which were the best I have had outside of New Orleans. I had heuvos rancheros which were yummy however I prefer the corn tortillas to be fried for a nice crunch. My husband had the French toast with no complaints. We will be back.

    We enjoyed sitting on back patio away from others. Host was very accommodating even when he couldn’t find my reservation on Opentable. I showed him on my phone but no issues. at all. The waitress was friendly, she made it a very nice experience. She continue to check on us. I really love this location on McKinney.

    Overall a pleasurable experience! The food was above average and the service was excellent. I would suggest that management attempt to keep people from crowding at the counter which nudges out dinners sitting at the tables adjacent to the counter. Nothing like a butt in your face while you are trying to enjoy brunch. It was also difficult for the wait staff to navigate the area as well.
