Best Sunday Brunch In Winter Park Florida
After a long week at work, home or studying, you deserve to do something that will make you want to kick back relax and enjoy the beautiful weekend. Well, what better way to spend your Sunday or Saturday mornings than a Sunday Brunch In Winter Park. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, brunching it up in Winter Park is honestly one of the best things you can do. I can guarantee you there is a spot for everyone in your friends/family group or hey, even if you’re dining for one. Don’t believe me? Well, I’ve come up with a fail-safe list of delicious places all over Winter Park that will make your brunch experience one for the check-books.
Starting the list off right, with Another Broken Egg Café
Because, what kind of brunch are you having if it’s not at some kind of egg café? Located on 410 North Orlando Avenue, this place is no yolk. Ok, I’m done with the egg puns, but seriously their Louisiana inspired food is delicious! When it comes to brunch, they have an entire menu of food and a separate menu for brunch drinks. Food includes delicious specials like, Crab Cake Benedict, Lobster and Brie Omelet, Shrimp and Grits and of course it wouldn’t be true soul food without Chicken and Waffles! Brunch drinks include classics like Mimosas and Bloody-Mary’s, though they also include their own twists on your traditional morning beverages. You can swap out your normal OJ, for a Blood Orange Bourbon Sour. Or if you’re really in the mood for a morning pickme-up ditch your regular cup of joe and down one of their “Spiked Cold Brews” (highly recommend the salted caramel cold brew because of the salted caramel rim). Oh, and they have Mimosa and Bloody Mary pitchers. So, you’d be cuckoo not to fly over there.
Their motto is eat, drink and stay a while. So, why wouldn’t you? Located on 643 N Orange Ave, Winter Park, you walk in and it’s basically an industrial, barn athletics dream. For seating, apart from the bar, they have beautiful wooden picnic tables, but what matters most here is the brunch menu. On their menu, it’s basically a list of comfort food that makes you wish the calories didn’t count (but who’s counting, it’s brunch). You’ve got “The Big Daddy” which is a giant freshly baked croissant, stuffed with bacon, turkey, fried egg, cheddar cheese, and veggies. You need to come here just for that alone. Plus, they are open till 2 am, for those of you who like to brunch till the sun goes down.
Ok, this one is technically on that cusp of Winter Park and Downtown Orlando, but I’d be amiss if I didn’t add this to the list! Located on 617 N Primrose Dr, it’s next to the large wall covered in art. When you walk in, you’re slammed with the hipster vibe, no doubt about that. Very industrial, prison trays, succulents on the wall, I only shop at urban outfitters vibe. Once you get passed all the mason jars and look at the menu, it is all very brunch soul food. (VEGANS BEWARE) Grits, biscuits, eggs, bacon. Grease. It’s not a place for someone who is only on a plant-based diet and who only has a half-empty stomach, I recommend you come HANGRY. I’d get there early though, lines are usually out the door!
The Glass Knife is located on 276 Orlando Ave here in Winter Park. I mean, they have a definition of what brunch is. To quote, “Br(eakfast) + (l)unch ] = a lifestyle. Brunch is many things to many people, but when it comes down to it, it’s our love affair with a meal that’s neither breakfast nor lunch – now enjoy it in style.” Need I say more? (I mean I will but come on.) On their brunch menu, which is served on Saturday’s and Sunday’s from 7am-4 pm, you have a variety of brunch-y type foods that will make any hipster foodie’s Instagram feed look, yummy. Food ranging from your classic Avo-Toast and Acai Bowls to your more foodie foods like the Cheddar Biscuit Sandwich and Lemon Blueberry Waffle Stack! Along with their brunch menu, the Glass Knife is also well known for their cakes and pastry menu (which includes a menu dedicated to doughnuts!) Even bigger plus, they are dog friendly. Run, don’t walk to The Glass Knife.
Keeping on theme of sweets and brunch, we have the Buttermilk Bakery. Located on 1198 Orange Ave in Winter Park, this shop is full of mouth-watering foods for you and your friends to enjoy. On the menu, which is served on weekends only from 11am to 3pm, you’ve got your basics covered with Avocado Toast, pancakes and the ever so classic omlette. What makes this so different from the rest is the ingredients used in the foods. Taking a closer look to the menu, you and your friends can enjoy your classic brunch foods with Egyptian, Italian and French twists. When it comes to the sweeter side of things, because what is brunch but not a time to “treat yo’ self”, you are blessed with a full menu or different kinds of croissants. These include chocolate, egg, monkey bread and kouign-amann. For those who have a dietary restriction, they also offer vegan and gluten free options.
