There’s something for everyone at Mockingbird Station. It seriously has it all; from shopping, to the movies, to yoga, to restaurants, to bars, and even blow outs and a nail salon. Mockingbird Station is the perfect place to pack in some holiday shopping, spend a weekend afternoon, or go for a date night.
Here’s a sample itinerary of how to spend the day hanging out at Mockingbird Station:
1st Stop: Start off with coffee and an extremely crave-worthly croissant from Edith’s French Bistro. They specialize in French baked goods, viennoiseries (light and fluffy pastries with a hint of sweetness) and pâtisseries (delightful confectionery desserts that will satisfy your sweet tooth). They also offer full breakfast, lunch, and dinner! Plus, they have all-day $3 mimosas and rosé, making it the perfect spot for brunch or your next happy hour.
P.S. Edith’s French Bistro is a Dallas Approved Dog-Friendly Food Establishment, so you can bring your four-legged family member with you!
We were lucky enough to meet Edith and learn all about their unique pastry and croissant process. After experiencing the fascinating and impressive demos of creating croissants from scratch and learning about the cake and pastry decorating process, we got to indulge in the delectable final products! We savored every bite! Trust us, all of Edith’s pastries and baked goods are every bit as amazing as they look.
2nd Stop: All the shopping! Mockingbird Station has a decent variety of shops offering a good range of products and something to interest just about everyone. We love exploring West Elm, Francesca’s, and the LOFT.
3rd Stop: Pamper yourself at Castle Nail Spa. We popped in for a quick polish change, but this is the perfect spot for an indulgent mani/pedi. Tip, ask for a shoulder massage, it’s worth it!
4th Stop: Watch a movie at the Angelika Film Center
5th Stop: Grab a Drink at The People’s Last Stand. They handcraft cocktails from homemade juices, bitters, syrups, infusions, and mixers. Each drink is fashioned with careful attention to detail, favoring locally sourced flavors and ingredients. They also offer a wide selection of craft brews and hand selected wines.
We learned first-hand from an experienced bartender how to craft a unique mocktail with fresh ingredients and garnishes. Since both becoming pregnant, a truly good mocktail has been a rare find, but the skilled bartenders at The People’s Last Stand made us mocktail-believers! They helped us mix up mocktail versions of a jalapeno lime citrus margarita and a herbaceous mint and lime spritzer with a Topo Chico topper.
6th Stop: Dinner at Mezze. Mezze specializes in flavorful Mediterranean tapas made with fresh ingredients. Mezze also features live music Thursday – Saturday evenings and at Sunday brunch! We were lucky enough to learn the art of plating food from one of Mezze’s leading chefs!
He showed us how to plate the beautiful and enticing Tuna Tartar pictured below, made with Avocado, Padron Pepper Relish, Yuzu Sauce, Quail Egg, and served with Malanga Chips. Mezze has a unique and innovative menu offering a wide range of options to choose from, including Flatbreads with a Mediterranean-twist, Kabobs, Bowls, Gyros, and a ton more!
We had a blast exploring all that Mockingbird Station has to offer and definitely recommend you check this newly revamped Dallas staple out too! Whether it’s been awhile since you last visited or you have yet to check it out, Mockingbird Station clearly has so much to offer and is definitely worth spending an afternoon exploring.
