Don’t reserve brunch just for Mother’s Day or Easter; Orlando has enough mid-morning meal options to get you out of bed (even if you slept int) for a delicious meal. Here are our five best brunch options in Orlando:
1. Dexter’s: If you’re in downtown Orlando, go where the locals go - Dexter’s in Thorton Park. The casual restaurant offers up a comfortable brunch menu, including corned beef hash and eggs, a breakfast bahn with scrambled eggs, grilled shrimp and marinated Asian vegetables on a toasted baguette, and a blue corn waffle, among many other items. No reservations required.
2. B-Line Diner: For a Sunday brunch served at a diner with clout, make a beeline for the B-Line Diner at the Peabody Orlando. In addition to champagne or mimosas, the prix fixe brunch features sorbet with seasonal fresh fruit, toast or breakfast pastry, choice beverage and an incredible array of desserts. Your brunch entrée choices: applewood benedict, Belgian waffle, huevos poblanos, omelet or smoked Atlantic salmon and bagel.

Strolling musicians and unlimited sparkling wine. add the perfect accompaniments and you can add to your meal.
