7 Places to Brunch at in Orlando

Orlando spoils you with restaurants, bakeries, and food trucks. The city I grew up in boasted the restaurant trifecta of Cracker Barrel, Chili’s, and (if you were feeling especially fancy) Olive Garden. To say Orlando was a positive improvement is an understatement. If you’re feeling a little brunchy check out these spots I’ve taste-tested and proved delicious. I’ve added a little of this and a little of that to offer your tastebuds a splash of variety.

1. The Crepevine

It’s not every day you find a restaurant that serves (high-quality) American-style crepes. The Crepevine does crepes complete justice whether you go savory or sweet. There’s plenty of options for customizing or you can always order as-is. This fast-casual stop is perfect for early lunch breaks or lazy Saturday mornings. You can usually sidestep the breakfast and lunch crowds by arriving at around 10:30 am. I highly recommend The Machine and The Annihilator.

Not a crepe person? I’m betting The Crepevine can make a convert out of you.

Cost: $10 per person

Address: 249 W State Rd 436 Altamonte Springs, FL 32714

2. Se7en Bites

Known for being jam-packed, Se7en Bites is in a quaint building with a massive parking lot in the heart of the Milk District. This southern comfort joint offers a modern spin on your nostalgia-inducing faves (even better than grandma’s cooking). This place is so good Guy Fieri made it a stop on his show Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. I’ve never gone for their hot kitchen dishes but their bakery is phenomenal. From bar cookies to muffins and scones to biscotti, they have plenty of options to accompany a mimosa (or beer-mosa).

Cost: $10 per person

Address: 617 N Primrose Dr Orlando, FL 32803

3. Hash House A Go Go

Hash House A Go Go makes bold, savory-sweet statements with their midwestern-inspired cooking. They specialize in what they coined ‘twisted farm food’. The food they serve is meant to be a visual experience as much as it’s a memorable one for your taste buds. I went with the Sage Fried Chicken and Waffles because I’d be remiss if I didn’t try a fan-favorite and staple menu item. Be sure to prepare a place in your stomach for one of their cocktails. If you’re a fan of Bloody Mary’s check out their take: Johnny’s Famous B.L.T. Mary. If you’re in the mood for something sweet try out their HH Big O’ Pancakes.

Hash House A Go Go is another Orlando treasure that didn’t get its start here. The first was built in San Diego, California but with only 11 locations nationwide I’d say it’s still a gem to enjoy here in Orlando.

Cost: $18 to $28 per person

Address: 5350 International Dr Orlando, FL 32819

4. Craft & Common

Is it really a brunch roundup if you don’t include an adorable, trendy coffee shop? Stop by Craft & Common for a coffee or matcha in an Instagrammable glass. Their drinks are like little masterpieces with quality evident with every sip. Their food is just as tasty and fresh. Brunch cocktails are also on the menu if mimosas are more your style. But besides the food and drinks, the environment itself is worth the premium cost of a coffee (I can’t say it’s cheap, that’s for sure). The trendy decor and chic coffeehouse vibe are straight out of every swoon-worthy Instagram feed. If I still worked downtown I’d be spending way too much money here on lunch breaks.

Order their Bacon Croissant or The Italian Sandwich for your meal and partner it with the Wild Child or The Dunes craft coffees.

Cost: $15 to $20 per person

Address: 47 E Robinson St UNIT 100, Orlando, FL 32801

5. Maple Street Biscuit Company

Maple Street Biscuit Company is buzzing with people the first time I walk in, the line giving me enough time to peruse the menu thrice. They are oozing with southern comfort from the biscuits and gravy-centric menu items to the modern farmhouse chic decor. When I order they ask for my favorite animal which is strange until I realize that is how they call out orders. (Order for giraffe!) Most recently their question was ‘where would you like to travel next?’ which is fitting considering the times. I like to cycle through their menu and try new options but I can’t go without ordering a Hash Brown Cake (delish!). I also highly recommend trying out The Sticky Maple, a chicken biscuit sandwich with pecanwood smoked bacon and drizzled in real maple syrup.

This is a spot we return to on the regular. But I have to admit, having tried both, their Oveido location is miles better than the one located in Celebration.

Cost: $7 to $10 per person

Address: 978 City Walk Ln, Oviedo, FL 32765

6. Another Broken Egg

Another Broken Egg is conveniently located off Orlando Avenue in the Winter Park Village Complex. There are technically four locations in Orlando but you won’t catch me recommending a jaunt to I-Drive or UCF-land unless there’s a one-of-a-kind spot. This may not be a Florida-original (it got its start in Louisiana) but that makes it no less delicious.

The staff is friendly and the vibe is cozy. They offer a variety of decadent pancakes and fluffy waffles. Or you could go for a more traditional egg-centric dish. If it’s your first visit they may even treat you to their delicious beignets—warm, crispy, and pillowy soft when you dive in (Yum!). I recommend The Hey Lucy!® Omelette or the Pancake Trio Flight.

Cost: $12 to $18 per person

Address: 410 N Orlando Ave Ste N100A Ste N100A, Winter Park, FL 32789

7. Bikes, Beans, and Bordeaux

This has been my most recent stop on the brunch map. I stepped into the building to a quiet mom-and-pop vibe. The menu was decently varied and the staff was friendly. But first, let the record state that parking is abysmal. Get there early to avoid the mad dash to sustenance.

B3 offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner with beer and wine tasting events held regularly. Check out the best locally crafted sips from Florida right at their Orlando location. I ordered the breakfast scramble and found seats at the breakfast bar looking out over the road to people watch. Our food arrived quickly and piping hot. While the dishes we ordered weren’t complex by any stretch of the imagination they were incredibly clean and fresh, a far cry from greasy breakfast platters you might find elsewhere in the area. I recommend trying out their Breakfast Scramble customized to your preferences and the Quiche.

When you’re done plowing through the insanely garden-fresh taste of B3’s breakfast offerings, cross the street to The Salty Donut to ruin all your healthy eating with a savory or sweet treat.

Cost: $7 - $12 per person

Address: 3022 Corrine Dr, Orlando, FL 32803
