Crayons Hemingway Brunch in a Wonderful Breakfast and Brunch for Coppell


The town of Coppell should have a new great place for brunch: Called Hemingway Brunch, it opens at 140 W. Sandy Lake Rd. # 140, in a former Sunny Street Cafe, where it will serve the three most important meals of the week: breakfast, lunch and brunch.

Owner Rima Sejdini is originally from Michigan and moved to the Dallas area four years ago.

“I was born and raised in the restaurant business and moved here to help my brother, who had opened a restaurant in Frisco,” she says. “I loved this place and decided to stay.”

Three years ago, she opened Townhouse Brunch in Colleyville, which has garnered praise for its combination of classic and creative dishes, executed with precision and delivered with attentive service. Hemingway will be his second restaurant.

“It will be similar to the Townhouse Brunch, where we do everything: pancakes, waffles, Benedictines and specialty omelets,” she says.

Pancake varieties include upside down pineapple, strawberry cheesecake, and “cinnabomb” with a cinnamon swirl and cream cheese frosting. Do not read more if you are hungry.

There are five French toast options, including Apple and Pecans, “Mr. Presley” with peanut butter and bananas, and Bourbon French toast topped with bourbon-glazed peaches.

The avocado toast comes with feta cheese and two poached eggs, and there’s a famous hard-to-find Monte Cristo sandwich with ham, Swiss cheese, and blackberry sauce.

There’s also lox and toast, cookies and gravy, pancakes, oatmeal, chicken and waffles, breakfast bowls, a bacon-stuffed breakfast quesadilla and eggs, and migas, both regular and a vegan “vigas” version with seasoned tofu, homemade jalapeño, tomato, onion and potatoes served with corn tortillas and salsa – “so you can make your own tacos, ”says Sejdini.

It’s just breakfast. Lunch includes generous salads, burgers, sandwiches and sides.

“We also have a full liquor license, which means espresso mimosas, bloody marys and martinis,” she says.

She chose Coppell both because of its accessibility to Townhouse in Colleyville, but also because she liked the location, at the busy intersection of Sandy Lake and Denton Tap Road.

She hopes to open in the coming weeks. “I’m good to go, if I can just hire a few more people – staffing is so tough right now,” she says.

The name is what you would expect: “It’s named after Ernest Hemingway, who was a world-class author,” she says. “I have always loved his books and everything he stands for.”
