I’m excited to share another one of my favorite spots in Dallas with you all—Deep Ellum! It’s a neighborhood in Dallas that is known for being an artsy, laid-back area with lots and lots of character. I’m so excited to share the area with you guys today!
It also happens to house one of my favorite restaurants, Cafe Brazil. Luckily for us it was a gorgeous sunny Sunday with temperatures in the high 60’s, so we snagged a spot outside to soak up some much needed vitamin D.
One of the reasons I’m so partial to Cafe Brazil is because Scott and I spent our first date there. <3 Awww. Also the food is incredibly tasty and the coffee is self-serve and all you can drink. Caffeinate me!!! It’s the perfect place to grab brunch or a snack with some coffee and write up some daydreams in a notebook. 😉
After grabbing brunch we strolled around and looked at some of the street art. There are so many colors and murals and sculptures!
I am kind of obsessed with this storefront and their streamer display. It makes me so happy to see all the colors and textures. It’s called the Color Condition—check out their fun videos here! Also, fun fact—I got my belly button pierced when I was in college in Deep Ellum! Not at the Tigger’s Tattoo…but somewhere around there. I took it out this year but it was a fun ride while I had it. 🙂
No trip to Deep Ellum would be complete without a trip into Lula B’s. The store is packed with vintage goods and clothing. It’s just fun to spend an hour or so looking through the treasures.
Then it was back out into the sunshine for a few more mural sightings. There’s some crazy-talented artists out there!
I always felt like Dallas was so cool to have an entire area dedicated to art and self-expression. Does your city have anything like that?
Also, on an unrelated note, I’m excited to be a part of another giveaway today! This one is for a $50 giftcard to the NFL pro shop! Perfect to help get you ready for the Super Bowl. 🙂 Who are you rooting for? Can I admit to just being in this game for the commercials? 😉
