Where to Get Your Peach Fix in Dallas
Summer and peaches, peaches and summer, the two just go hand in hand. Honestly, who doesn’t love a juicy peach that falls out of the pit in the scorching August days?
Even though the peach season is coming to an end, there are still plenty of places in Dallas to quench your cravings for this sweet, luscious fruit.
The first thing that comes to mind when someone mentions peaches is peach cobbler. There’s nothing like a bite of the sticky, sweet confectionery, especially when it’s covered with ice. If you’re craving some peach cobbler, then CBD at Joule in downtown Dallas is for you. They serve a delicious peach and blackberry cobbler with pistachio ice cream.
The quirky coffee house is the perfect place when you need a lunch break from the hustle and bustle of downtown Dallas. The baristas greet you with a joke that is sure to make you laugh, and the tables are covered with white paper and colored pencils so you can scribble and relax while you wait for your food or drink. The grilled cheese sandwich with cheddar, provolone, havarti and goat cheese is a must. Make sure you wash it down with Italian peach soda or a fresh mango and peach tea. We also recommend the apricot and peach oolong.
Dallas Farmers Market
If you haven’t had a chance to stop by the Dallas Farmers Market, August is the perfect month. Discover all this local gem has to offer while shopping for some fresh peaches and peach products. The Dallas Farmers Market has two components: The Market and The Shed. The market, with several restaurants and shops, is open Monday through Sunday, while The Shed is only open Friday through Sunday.
If you’re like me and dessert isn’t really your thing then you will want to go to The Porch. The restaurant serves a Duroc pork tenderloin with celery root puree, local greens, purple quinoa and a peach demi. They also offer a refreshing peach bourbon smash made from bourbon, peach puree, jumbled basil, and fresh lemon juice.
Peggy Sue BBQ
The popular Snider Plaza Joint may be known for its delicious barbecue, but its dessert doesn’t disappoint. They serve a delicious homemade peach cobbler, the perfect way to end your delicious meal.
Eatzi’s offers Dallasites a unique experience, step into this market and bakery and you will feel like you are on a European vacation. Whether you enjoy one of the 45 homemade breads or choose one of the many Italian specialties or artisanal cheeses, this European-style market and bakery will make you want more. They also offer freshly brewed peach mango tea and a heavenly peach cake.
The neighborhood restaurant is loved by many for its true American cuisine. From seafood to mesquite and hickory-smoked meat, there is something for everyone on the menu. Stop by and try the delicious peach cake that is available all year round.
Lark in the park
Located across from Klyde Warren Park, the modern restaurant is celebrating the peach season by adding peaches to its avocado and stone fruit salad. The salad also has watercress and green onions. It’s the perfect light and refreshing meal on a hot summer day.
