Best in Dallas

All the things you thought Dallas didn't have

Healthy Me

This cafe had a slow start, but it’s turned into a nice place for a bite to eat. The first time I went, it was just a market for take-out and they held classes, and you felt like if you weren’t already a member of the club, you didn’t belong. So I didn’t go back for a while. But my daughter worked nearby and picked up lunches there as they expanded their menu and she loved the food. So I recently braved Healthy Me again and found the market has been converted to a charming cafe with great menu selections, comfortable booths, and fun local art on the walls. The food is healthy and actually tasty and satisfying; you can eat in or take it home or to the office carefully packed for later. I understand they even deliver school lunches to participating schools and would love to see a review of how that works. My mother and I split a salad and a sandwich and it was yummy. With takeout cases and some gift items, Healthy Me Cafe has evolved into a very friendly place! 240 N. Denton Tap Road in Coppell.

Grapevine Springs Park

Hidden away in Coppell is a little gem of a park which has been a favorite shady spot since Sam Houston traveled the area negotiating with the Cherokees.  Grapevine Springs Park was improved by the Works Progress Administration in the 1930s and the stonework remains.  Large homes and city facilities are encroaching on the area, but the park is still a quiet oasis with water, trails, picnic tables, and towering pecan and oak trees.  Located at the end of Park Street south of the 300 block of W. Bethel Road.
