Arlington is host to tourist landmarks AT&T Stadium and Six Flags, making the city a magnet for franchise restaurants. While visitors may find themselves awash in chains, these 10 spots are essential to visit if you’re hankering for breakfasts cooked by locals in the know. Here is our guide to dining out for breakfast and brunch.
Fans of breakfast buffets will be delighted by Division Street Diner’s Sunday brunch. The smaller portions, frequently changed serving trays and expansive options make for a meal that is a pleasant surprise. Carved meats, eggs prepared any way and massive pancakes lead to a choice of Division’s homemade desserts. During the week, this restaurant’s loaded hash browns – potatoes with bacon, ham, or sausage, and topped with melted cheese and eggs – are a local favorite.
This locale is also a former chain, replacing standard donuts with pastries that feel homemade. Oh! Donuts also offers one of the cheaper filling breakfasts in the area; a sausage roll filled with bacon, ham, eggs, and cheese, for less than a dollar, that goes great with a freshly brewed cup of coffee. Family-run and friendly, Oh! Donuts also makes fresh doughnut holes and tasty apple fritters. Visitors may miss this spot on the edge of Arlington’s Park Plaza Shopping Center, but Oh! Donuts is well worth a visit.

Located next to a hardware store, hole-in-the-wall Sabor Latino is home to Arlington’s most authentic Colombian food. Those tired of eggs and pancakes will appreciate the breakfast options at Sabor. Fresh pineapple, passion fruit, and papaya juices make for a light start to the day, along with Colombian coffee. Empanadas, served with a delicious cilantro sauce, and plantains, are also filling options, not to mention easy on the wallet. For the complete Colombian experience, the Bandeja Paisa – beans, rice, arepas (potato pancakes), carne asada salad, chicharron (fried pork), chorizo (sausage), eggs and plantains is a recommended dish. Served with fresh avocado, the dish contains enough food to sustain customers for the rest of the day.
