If you want to spend the day exploring downtown McKinney, fuel up with a delicious, energizing brunch at Layered. The interior decor and menu are closer to a cafe than a brunch spot, but this restaurant will give you the boost of caffeine you need to start your day with one of their gourmet, exquisite cups of coffee, roasted in-house.
The space has a warm, comfortable, community feel, as it’s intended to encourage gathering and socializing among the patrons who visit. In addition to the many coffee varieties available, you’ll also find a ton of baked goods and unique family recipes geared toward breakfast and lunch dishes.
Barney’s Brunch House
As is obvious in the name, Barney’s Brunch House was basically built all around brunch. This kid-friendly restaurant is a favorite among McKinney families, as servers take special care to cater to children. Though you’ll have to drive to Frisco to get there, the trip is well worth it. When it comes to dishes, you’ll want to try the Red Velvet Pancakes with cream cheese glaze and chocolate sauce. There’s also the Heavenly Hash, with corned beef, onion, hash browns, Swiss cheese, and two eggs done any style you choose. Finish it off with some fresh orange juice served on the side.
The only issue with this restaurant is that it tends to get busy quickly on the weekends, which can lead to long wait times. Though the restaurant doesn’t accept reservations, you can get on the waitlist via Yelp if you think you’re heading there during a busy time of the day. Barney’s Brunch House opens from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
McKinney residents who want to forego upscale decor and dishes will love Starwood Cafe in Adriatica Village, a place that prides itself on serving the best American comfort food in town. The comfortable atmosphere and rich, indulgent food make this cafe one of the top-rated and busiest places in the area.
Try the Belgian waffles, buttermilk pancakes (made from scratch), and flavorful skillet dishes. Some specific favorites include the Very Berry Waffle, which comes with multiple toppings, including raspberry-vanilla glaze and a variety of fresh berries (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and blackberries), or the Breakfast Power Bowl if you’re looking for a healthier option.
Hours: 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
With skillets, scrambles, toasts, and eggs, B&B Cafe has all the ingredients you need for a perfect brunch. Stop by this cute and casual cafe to experience delicious American brunch staples, exceptional service, and a great overall dining experience. Since this restaurant is popular, there’s often a bit of a wait, but the line usually moves fast thanks to the cafe’s quick and efficient service.
Regular customers highly recommend the Chicken Fried Steak, Bacado three-egg omelet, and brioche French toast. Even if none of these sound like something you’d eat, not to worry — the menu has a huge variety of dishes, with something sure to satisfy almost everyone that walks in the door. The restaurant opens from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
