We are celebrating 4 years since the launch of DallasFoodNerd! DFN is a community project of a few (30+ now!) DFW-based nerds who happen to like food, probably a little too much! Do you have a restaurant that you would like to have featured? Reach out to the DFN founders @Elysa or @RoryEllis or email Foodie@dallasfoodnerd.com.

Coffee / Desserts

If you’ve got a caffeine addiction or a sweet-tooth, you’ll want to take a look at these treats.

Churros to lattes… cupcakes to chai tea… yummy sweets make for “good eats”!

We hate to break it to you, but our pal #dallasfoodnerd @foodwithmonica is better at the #🍩 game than you. She made this Donut Milkshake from #funkytowndonuts ・・・ Anyone else wakes up early in the morning to go wait in the parking lot for a doughnut shop to be open? 👋✋ *ME ME ME* I heard so many great things about this place so I had to go experience it myself. Their donuts sells out fast, so I made sure I had my hands on these donuts before anyone else did. 👊😏 While my best friend is at home on their instagram page patiently waiting for them to post the flavors of the day. So she can text me which flavors she wants. Hahaha Let me just say that I was not disappointed. Each flavors was delicious. It wasn’t too sweet. It was just perfect from the textures to the designs and the icing was everything. 😋 Warning: Some icing from the donuts is missing due to me driving so fast that my box of donuts hit the floor and abused some of the doughnuts. 😭 ( Let’s just say I did my best in constructing this crazy milkshake. )

Tonight a couple of food nerds ventured over to @lazydogrestaurants to try their Butter Cake. This cake was all the buzz this week as several of our team got to experience #TasteAddison menu items early. Here’s what @visitaddison shared about this drool worthy cake. ・・・ And the winner is…. Yesterday we celebrated with our annual kick off for #TasteAddison, a fun competition between a few of our restaurants called “Taste: The Competition.” Some of our best restaurants shared the perfect bite of goodness for some of Dallas’ best foodie influencers giving their nod to their favorites. Check out who won and get your taste buds ready for Taste Addison 2016 on Facebook! #tasteaddison #buttercake #addisontx #addison #addisonfun #dfwevents #dallasevents #traveltexas #foodporn
