Cof­fee, Dessert and Bak­eries

Where Dallas - - THE GUIDE -

BIRD BAK­ERY— This San An­to­nio-based, made-from­scratch café and bak­ery in High­land Park Vil­lage of­fers a healthy menu of sand­wiches and sal­ads so you can save room for dessert; its plethora of cup­cakes and sweet treats are just as pretty as they are de­li­cious. www.bird­bak­ery.com. 7A High­land Park Vil­lage, Pre­ston Road at Mock­ing­bird Lane, Dal­las.

CAFÉ STRADA— A charm­ing café seem­ingly picked right off of an Ital­ian side­walk, Café Strada serves up hand­made gelato, panini, lat­tés and more. Lo­cated near the Joule Ho­tel, it’s the per­fect place for a quick pick-me-up, cof­fee run or lunch on-the-go. It’s also ideal for peo­ple-watch­ing and re­lax­ing on the pa­tio. 1520 Elm St., Ste. 107, 214.202.6485.

EM­PO­RIUM PIES— The charm­ing Bishop Arts District pie pur­veyor (with a sis­ter lo­ca­tion in McKin­ney) is known for cult clas­sics like “Lord of the Pies” (the king of apple pie) and the salty-meets-sweet Smooth Oper­a­tor, but there’s al­most al­ways some­thing new in the oven depend­ing on the sea­son. Mul­ti­ple lo­ca­tions. www.em­po­ri­ump­ies.com.

OPEN­ING BELL COF­FEE— To call Open­ing Bell Cof­fee “just a cof­fee shop” would be sell­ing it short. The hip gather­ing place in the base­ment of the his­toric Sears Roe­buck build­ing is part cof­fee shop, part res­tau­rant, part wine bar and part event venue, with live mu­sic pro­vid­ing the sound­track al­most daily. www.open­ing­bell­cof­fee.com. 1409 S. La­mar St., 214.565.0383.
