New breakfast/lunch joint Oddfellows in the Bishop Arts District serves some of the best coffee in Dallas. They get their beans from Cuvee Coffee Roasting Company near Austin and serve single origin espressos. Tomorrow buy a cup of their heady brew and get a free breakfast taco 6:30am-2pm. They’re calling it Taco Tuesday. I call it free grub.
