Good Morning! Depending on where you’re starting your stay or day here in Orlando, first things first, BRUNCH. And rest assured, Orlando does brunch right!
Nestled along the gorgeous Park Avenue in Winter Park Florida, a suburb of East Orlando, you’ll find the brightest brunch cafe Orlando has to offer! The Briarpatch, with those famous yellow umbrellas that locals can recognize for miles, this spot has their breakfast needs met both in aesthetics and nourishment. From their twists on a classic Eggs Benedict to their delicious breakfast cocktails you’ll find a treat or two to kick-start your Orlando morning in a one-of-a-kind way!
Then to move those legs and enjoy the weekend weather, a short walk away from brunch is The Winter Park Farmers Market where you will find some of our favorite local vendors in the Greater Orlando area come out every weekend morning to show off their products. If you’re looking to expand your landscaping or find a small bite there is plenty of opportunity here to find what you’re craving most!
Now to pop over to Downtown Orlando for an afternoon pick-me-up at The Robinson Room. This flawlessly designed space re-opened in Summer of 2020 and has already become a local favorite. For coffee, #WFH outings, Happy Hour cocktails, or even date nights this location has a lot to offer.
