Bread Winners Cafe and Bakery [Plano TX]
Breadwinners has become our new Sunday tradition. We always go to their Plano location on 4021 Preston Road for brunch. It is invariably very busy, especially around noon. Wait time can be up to an hour or more for a table (although we bail if we have to wait that long.)
As soon as you sit down, the server brings a plate with samples of different kinds of cake. That’s my favourite moment. I usually scarf them down before the coffee arrives, although I try to pace myself. The coffee’s good and there are endless refills.
As a rule, food here is very good. Portions are big enough to share (although it’s not family style) or take home for dinner. The kitchen is efficient and produces food relatively quickly and consistently.
Their buttermilk pancakes are huge, almost as big as the plate, and light and fluffy. One of my favourite dishes is the French ham Benedicts, with smoked ham, asparagus, over easy eggs and hollandaise sauce served over a croissant. It comes with breakfast potatoes or fresh fruit.
Sean’s favourite is the Southwest migas: scrambled eggs, chorizo, tortilla strips, onions, peppers, jalapenos, salsa and soft tortillas.
The only item on the menu that I didn’t care for was the queen of hearts salad, the dressing felt sandy in my mouth.
Their baked goods are also delicious. We’ve bought their ginger cake is perfect; moist, spicy and not too sweet. The other day I bought a blueberry and lemon muffin to go. It made my flight more enjoyable!
