As the son of a restaurateur, Brandon Bunn said he grew up around the business. At the age of 21, Bunn used the industry knowledge passed down from his dad and opened up the Snooty Pig Cafe in 2001.

The background

Bunn's first Snooty Pig Cafe was in the Grapevine/Colleyville area. In 2011, he opened a second location in Highland Village. He closed the Grapevine/Colleyville location in 2022 after choosing not to renew the lease. There is another Snooty Pig Cafe in Argyle that is owned by his father, Blake Bunn.

What’s on the menu

The menu features breakfast and lunch items. Bunn categorizes the breakfast options as “southern home cooking.”

“Everything we make here is from scratch, including our muffins, cinnamon rolls and biscuits,” Bunn said. “We try to keep it simple and provide our customers with a fast and efficient service to get in and out with something fresh.”

Popular items on the lunch menu are the grilled chicken salad and hamburgers featuring hamburger buns made in house. Daily specials, such as the chicken fried steak, homemade meatloaf and pot roast are also crowd pleasers, Bunn said.

What’s special about it

Snooty Pig Cafe manager Gigi Collins has been with the company 11 years. She said many of their employees started out as customers, noting that some families started eating at the cafe when their children were young and now some of those children work beside her.

Collins said that over the years she has developed first name-basis relationships with customers.

“You know how they say, 'You need to look forward to going to your job, not dreading it?' I look forward to going to work because I need my people,” Collins said.

Going forward

Bunn thinks his daughter, Tatum Bunn, might follow in his footsteps. He said her childhood has been similar to his in that she is growing up in the restaurant industry. She said she can do most things in the restaurant but is not a fan of washing dishes.

Bunn has set a goal to open a second location in the Grapevine/Colleyville area within a year. He said he hopes to open multiple locations within five years and possibly entertain franchising opportunities.
