A longtime Houston institution, the Toasted Yolk brings brunch to Highland Village

Houstonians who have moved to Dallas, a little taste of H-town is coming. And based on the lines that roll out of every brunch in town on weekends, their doors open not a moment too soon.

The Toasted Yolk will open its first DFW location in Highland Village at 3020 Justin Road on Monday, April 25. Once open, diners will be able to grab brunch (or breakfast or lunch) seven days a week, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Texans on the other end of I-45 already know that Toasted Yolk’s churro donuts and Arnold’s cute little breakfast sandwiches are a delight, as is the jaw-dropping presentation of their version of the shrimp and grits. . The chain also offers “power bowls”, made with kale and quinoa for a lighter brunch.

The Toasted Yolk DFW location may be the first, but it won’t be the last – a major expansion into the area is imminent. New grilled yolks are coming to Frisco, McKinney, Addison, North Dallas, Southlake, Plano and Prosper on dates to be announced.

If the look and sound of the meats and sauces between English muffins isn’t enough to temper you, the Toasted Yolk is doing business on its first day in Dallas with some inducements for savvy diners. And you don’t have to be an early bird to collect.

It will offer free breakfast for a year to three customers lining up on their opening day, while the first 25 customers will receive a $25 gift certificate. And anyone who comes that day can expect a free serving of churro beignets and partake in a $3 mimosa special.
