I’ve rarely met a sweet shop I haven’t liked and Dallas bakeries are no exception. Every time I’m back in my hometown I have my go-to spots that I must enjoy and Bird Bakery is my newest addition. It’s adorable and delicious, plus it doesn’t hurt that it’s tucked next door to Draper James and Royal Blue Grocery at my favorite Dallas shopping center, Highland Park Village. Whether you’re a local or Dallas tourist, I definitely recommend adding this bright little bakery to your “must-savor” list. It’s sweet shop perfection to indulge in a little afternoon treat or to enjoy something both savory and sweet.
I actually first stumbled upon Bird Bakery at its soft opening during a trip back home a few months back. I’m a frequent visitor to the Stumptown Coffee Bar located right next door, so during a morning coffee run my sweet tooth lead me next door. Before I even set my sights on the cupcakes I was immediately drawn to the pastel decor. I don’t know what it is about neon signs and carbs, but these two go together like salt and pepper. A giant “Let them Eat Cake” sign glows above the airy bright interior, where guests can then choose a white marble table indoors or a Parisian-inspired set up outdoors. The back wall is stocked with buy-able goodies while the front is lined with sugar paper greeting cards (another obsession we all know I love).
Unlike most sweet spots solely known for their cupcakes, Bird Bakery also has a full breakfast and lunch menu. It’s tradition for my mom and I to enjoy a girls lunch before an afternoon of shopping every time I’m back in Dallas, so we settled on this adorable destination for our latest mother/daughter escapade. She went with the tuna salad protein style while I chose the half tuna salad sandwich and cup of yellow squash corn chowder. Both delicious and perfectly filling to fuel for an eventful day. We indulged in our cupcakes before our food even arrived (I definitely recommend the Lavender cupcake!) and continued on with our beautiful Dallas day!
You can visit Bird Bakery located in Highland Park Village between 10am-6pm daily or if you’re in San Antonio stop by their Broadway Street location open daily as well!
