Snooty Pig Cafe is a name you won’t forget. Delicious food, house-made tortillas and salsa, & fresh-ground coffee will keep you coming back.
The meteorologists in Oklahoma are really good when it comes to tornadoes and high fire danger, because we deal with it every spring and summer like clockwork. However, their winter weather predictions are a different story. We rarely get snow and ice and, when we do, the entire world is coming to an end. Long story short, they closed DFW airport for just a few inches of snow when I flew out for my interview, so I was stuck overnight. The next morning, the highway was a parking lot, I barely made it to Stillwater for my interview, and my luggage never made it to OKC until I was ready to fly home 2 days later.
In January they predicted a bad storm the same weekend I was going to Austin. By 3pm on Thursday afternoon nearly every school system closed down for Friday, and the Governor declared a state of emergency. I left my house at 2am on Friday to beat the weather. Not only was there no rain until I hit Denton TX 3 1/2 hours later, but only far western Oklahoma got any real precipitation.
I’m still annoyed that I left in the middle of the night for no reason. But I made record time because I was basically the only one on the road. I planned to spend a few hours in Flower Mound with Joni; but since I got to town at 6:30AM and was starving, breakfast was my first requirement. I Googled “best breakfast in Flower Mound” and came across Snooty Pig Cafe. It got great reviews, and is only a 10-minute drive from Joni’s house.
There are 4 Snooty Pig Cafe locations, all in the DFW metro area. I visited the newest location, in Highland Village. It’s in a strip mall, and one of those places that if you don’t know where to look you’ll drive right past it.
Snooty Pig Cafe is open 6:30am-2pm daily. The restaurant seats about 50, with booths along the right wall and tables for the rest of the seating. Aside from one large family-style round table, the other tables are 4-tops. There is a large bar on the left wall, with seating around 3 sides of the bar. The bar does not serve alcohol; instead, it houses coffee, tea, and beverage supplies.
As you can imagine, pigs dominate the Snooty Pig Cafe decor with figurines and fun pictures all over the walls. I wasn’t enough on my game, so I only got one picture, but it gives you the general idea
I love that the Snooty Pig Cafe staff greeted their regular customers by name as they walked in, and knew exactly what they wanted to eat. That’s the mark of great customer service. The restaurant was only about 1/4 full when I arrived, but customers streamed in pretty steadily during my visit. I could tell that a couple of tables were guys who met their regularly, drank coffee, and caught up on life. Again, I love places like that.
After my early wake up call and drive, I was in desperate need of coffee
Restaurant coffee is usually just that–restaurant quality coffee. However, this coffee is fabulous, something I never thought I would say about restaurant coffee. They use Community Coffee, and grind each batch prior to brewing. That’s what I do at home, and it makes such a difference. Of course, I raved about the coffee to my server. I buy my coffee from a local Oklahoma company, but I may need to try this brand at home as well.
Snooty Pig Cafe is open for breakfast and lunch, and breakfast is available all day. The menu prices are very diner-esq, with no item more than $7.25. The breakfast menu includes traditional breakast items, favorites omelets, from the griddle, breakfast sandwiches, healthy options and sides. I don’t do well with big menus. Even though this menu isn’t huge, there are still quite a few options. I finally narrowed it down to 2, and with the help of my server decided on the Breakfast Migas, and substituted bacon for the sausage.
I’ve never had Migas before, but I love the idea of a scramble full of everything. It’s a meal in one, and I like the variety of vegetables. Substituting bacon was a great call, because the bacon adds such a nice contrast in texture to the creamy eggs. The house- made corn tortillas come to the table piping hot, and are delicious. I planned to only eat one, and stuffed it with Migas. Towards the end, even though I was full, I ate another tortilla. I’m a huge hash brown fan, and these are just the way I like them. Salsa with eggs is pretty new to me, but I tried some in the tortilla-wrapped Miga. Wow, this house-made salsa is fantastic, and full of flavor. I made sure to use all of it with the rest of my meal.
Will I go back to Snooty Pig Cafe? Definitely. My server was helpful and friendly, the food is delicious, and the price is right.
