If you’re looking for a new Dallas coffee shop to change up your weekend routine, Cafe Duro will not disappoint!
From the second you walk in, you will feel excited about one of the latest new coffee shop experiences on Greenville Avenue. Cafe Duro recently opened in May right next door to the restaurant Sister. If you’ve been to Sister, you know all about the aesthetic experience that Duro Hospitality brings. It’s not just the Instagram-able content Dallas experience, the European flair makes its way into the delicious food as well.
If you haven’t been to Sister though, this is a great way to experience great food and atmosphere. It actually might be my preferred way to enjoy it.
Here’s the best time to get to Cafe Duro
I got to Cafe Duro on a Saturday morning around 9:30 am. I think that this was an ideal time to get there because I had no issues parking (which you know is a thing on Lower Greenville). The parking can be found in the back by entering off Vickery for those of you who have parking anxiety like me. The signs say Sister, but it’s the same thing!
Walking in at 9:30, it wasn’t too busy. There were two people in front of us and two people behind us. A nice change from the line out the door at other coffee and brunch spots in Dallas.
The first thing I noticed was the interior design. Between the tile and the Sees Design wallpaper, I felt like I was transported to Europe, a trip that I’m really craving lately.
The next thing I noticed was that there wasn’t any seating. After a quick panic, the barista mentioned that the seating is next door on Sister’s covered patio. Such a smart way for them to use the restaurant space while Sister’s closed!
As soon as you walk in you can grab a menu and browse the Mediterranean import grocery items along with a good wine selection next to the line. They of course all the coffee drinks you need and pastries. What caught my eye though were the polenta and egg cups.
Not going to lie, I had no idea what to envision here but I knew all the ingredients sounded good. I went with the meatball, tomato, and jalapeno egg cup. It was so good but wasn’t able to finish it because I’m just not very hungry in the mornings. I did try a bite of the wild mushroom, corn, and parmesan egg cup which was really good too.
When I go back, I am definitely going to order the meatball one again!
In addition to the egg cups, we also tried the kolache and danish. These were delish as well.
Next time I do want to try the olive oil cake. I can’t talk enough about how good olive oil cake is. My favorite in Dallas is at Barcelona, in case you have the olive oil craving too!
Once we placed our order, we headed over to the Sister patio where there was plenty of seating. It’s also important to note that it’s dog friendly! There was plenty of seating for both tables for two and groups of about 4.
I also want to mention that I definitely want to go for lunch which starts at about 11. This is also around that time that all the pastries were sold out. The pizzitas and paninis sound so good!
Overall, I’m so excited to have this new dog-friendly spot only 5 minutes away from me. I really hope it sticks around!

There is 15-minute parking right outside along the curb. If you’re going to stay to eat, there is parking behind the restaurant. You’ll want to enter the lot off of Vickery.
Cappuccinos are always my go-to!
The meatball, tomato, and jalapeno polenta egg cup is great!
