Ascension Coffee

May 15, 2014

I originally visited Ascension Coffee for an after dinner treat.  Since it was later in the evening, the atmosphere was mellow. In the evening, the lights are dim, even more so on the patio. The patio is mainly lit by string lights, making the coffee house feel cozy and relaxing. That night they had a jazz […]

I had the luxury of having brunch on a beautiful day this spring. Finding a place that offered brunch on a different day than Sunday was a task. The only places I really knew of that served breakfast in the afternoon were IHOP, Waffle House, etc. I had heard a lot of talk about Bread […]

Biggest Doesn’t Always Mean Best

UPDATE: The Mecca has closed since this post.    Not too long ago, I visited the Mecca on Live Oak. I went because they boast that they have the “Best Cinnamon Roll in Dallas.” Automatically, that’s a hefty claim, but I was craving cinnamon rolls and wanted to see if it was true. The ambiance […]

Welcome to Honest Dallas

May 1, 2014

This first post is just a quick introduction of why this blog actually exists. I wanted to create this blog because I read the annual best of Dallas from D Magazine and the Observer.
