Best brunches of Central Florida

In Orlando specifically and from experience, people are lining up to get into the best brunch spots in the city, sometimes waiting longer for a brunch seat than a dinner seat.

Alice in Wonderland meets Breakfast at Tiffany’s at the Glass Knife in Winter Park. They are well known for their magical desserts, huge hand-crafted donuts made fresh daily, stunning cakes that will make anyone gasp, and of course, their array of menu options.
