The Dream Cafe has been a Dallas staple since 1988, when first opened the original location in Uptown. In 2016, we brought the Dream Café concept to the Lakewood community and continues to serve the East Dallas area. Long before health food was hip, we have been offering wholesome, organic global cuisine since day one. In fact, the Dream has it all, from guilty pleasures like our savory Mystic Pasta and Chicken and Waffles to a Garden Stir-fry and House made Honey-Nut Granola. We continue to care about what goes on our menu and strive to maintain high quality standards by using locally sourced ingredients, hormone free meats and organic legumes, grains and produce. You can grab a seat at our full bar, open air dining room, or just relax on our covered patio.
We thank the Dallas community for the continual support!

    Food was tasty and portions adequate. We opted for seating on the patio since we had three children with us. The patio can be uncomfortable from the heat of the summer sun. Waitress was polite and pleasant. Will return.

    This is one of my favorite locations. This visit wasn’t one of the better ones. Service was fairly inattentive and the food was a bit off. The blueplate’s chicken was cold and very thickly coated with salty breading while the potatoes tasted like smashed boiled potatoes with no seasoning.

    My one request would be to allow substitutions. I have company, that wants to support local venues, with dietary concerns. Other than that, I had an awesome experience!

    So many entree options. It’s always so hard to decide. Server staff is wonderful and very helpful. It’s our to go breakfast/lunch spot on our days off. Very casual and a great place to relax and eat.

    I can't really write a review because when we arrived at the restaurant for our reservation the door was locked with a sign on the door saying they were closed. We were never contacted before or after to explain. Our small company Christmas party had to be moved across the parking lot to Olivella's at the last moment. Very disappointing.

    I enjoyed the seating arrangement of a booth for 6. The dinner food selection was so good, it was hard for me to choose ! It was really nice to be able to hear each other talk. It can get so loud in other restaurants.

    The food and drinks were excellent. However, our waitress was one of the worst I’ve ever had. We waited on her every step of the way (even though the restaurant was at low capacity). Besides the waiting, her performance was embarrassing and made me and my date uncomfortable. At the end, we were waiting for her to visit our table so we could get the check and leave. After waiting with empty drinks and empty plates for about 10 minutes, I asked the hostess if she could let our waitress know that we were ready for our check. I’m not sure if the hostess didn’t pass this along or what, but our waitress still took over ten more additional minutes to finally show up. I would definitely come back, but if I get the same waitress again and have a similar experience, I would leave Dream Cafe and never return.

    The restaurant is a great place to take the family. The menu has something for everyone. The meals are not "cookie cutter" dishes. Portion sizes are generous!

    They've recently remodeled and the food was really good. I always think of Dream Café for breakfast and lunch, but we enjoyed a nice dinner here. Their "light" margaritas are really excellent.
