It wouldn’t be a vacation without going to a new Diner right?
While in Dallas, my husband and I decided to go to Oddfellows (Dallas). It’s one of the gray area restaurants that same may consider it a diner while others may consider it a cafe. Life is rarely black and white anyways…Oddfellows is located in the Bishop Arts District and serves Dallas and Fort Worth.
Oddfellows (Dallas) Atmosphere: A
The outside o Oddfellows is neat and clean. It’s painted bright yellow, and they have an outdoor patio with seating as well.
The inside is all wooden seats, and it’s centered around a giant bar which serves coffee too. The giant silver espresso machine is almost like the centerpiece of the restaurant.
Oddfellows (Dallas) Coffee: A
The coffee at Oddfellow itself is home brewed. You can order any sort of fancy espresso, latte or anything else coffee-related. They would probably do a decent business as just a coffee shop.
I ordered my staple coffee with whipped cream. The whipped cream is homemade, and it was great. Not surprisingly, Oddfellows has some of the best coffee I’ve had to date. If I lived locally,
it would become a staple for me.
Oddfellows (Dallas) Service: A
The waitress at Oddfellows (Dallas) was friendly, comical and refilled out beverages. I have no complaints.
Oddfellows (Dallas) Food: A
The Oddfellowsmenu is small. They serve their entire menu all day which was great. We got there around brunch, and I had no idea what I wanted. Breakfast? Lunch? Oddfellows has a few fun options like fried green tomatoes and fried chicken.
The Pork Belly Benedict caught my interest. I enjoy pork belly, and it seemed like a unique choice I hadn’t had before. It came with homefries and on a bed of arugula. The pork belly was delicious, and the poached eggs made a great combination. It also had a small kick with siracha sauce. I enjoyed the cubed homefries as well. The portion size was a little smaller than usual diners, but it was fresh.
Oddfellows (Dallas) Cost: $
For the pork belly and coffee, the cost was $15. It’s one of the cheaper diner meals I’ve had.
Overall thoughts/Would I come back to Oddfellows (Dallas)?
I enjoyed Oddfellows (Dallas), and if I lived locally, I would be back. In fact, I would be back to Oddfellows a lot. I don’t have any complaints.
