Coffee, Dessert and Bakeries
BISOUS BISOUS PATISSERIE— Dessert & Coffee. Specializing in a large variety of unique Frenchstyle pastries including French macarons, tarts, éclairs, croissants and cakes, Bisous Bisous’ original creations are made from scratch daily using the finest ingredients. www.bisous-bisous.com. 3700 McKinney Ave., 214.613.3570. CAFÉ STRADA— Global. 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. 1520 Elm St., Ste. 107, 214.202.6485. EMPORIUM PIES— American. 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 saltymeets-sweet Smooth Operator, but there’s almost always something new in the oven depending on the season. www.emporiumpies.com. 314 N. Bishop Ave., Dallas, TX 75208, 469.206.6126; 107 S. Tennessee St., McKinney, 214.491.1577. HYPNOTIC DONUTS— Bakery. Got a taste for something sweet and unique? Look no further than Hypnotic Donuts, offering up specialties like Jenny’s Evil Elvis, a mix of peanut butter, bacon, banana and honey. Looking to spice it up? Try the Mexico, a glazed donut with vanilla frosting, fresh jalapenos and Tabasco! Stop by early, they sell out quickly. www.hypnoticdonuts.com. 9007 Garland Rd., 214.668.6999. OPENING BELL COFFEE— Cafes And Coffee Houses. This 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.
