With Easter coming up this Sunday, the big question on every Orlandoan's mind is, of course, "where are we brunching?" That's right, Orlando is a brunch kind of town, with mimosas flowing freely every Sunday, without fail; and Easter Sunday is no exception, so take this as your reminder to make reservations now. All that being said, there are so many great brunch spots here, it can be overwhelming to figure out which one fits the vibe you're going for; but fret not! I've taken the liberty of breaking down a few of my favorites, not only by the environment, but also by their patrons' preferred style; and of course, all places listed feature bottomless mimosas. So, sit back, relax, and read on to find out which Orlando brunch place suits you best, so you can find your bliss this Sunday, and for many more to come.
A little bougie, chic, but classic. Dressing up is standard.
With floor-to-ceiling windows, indoor and outdoor seating, and a high-end contemporary vibe, 310 Lakeside is the perfect brunch spot for those who love city life. Located literally lakeside at Lake Eola, the hub of Downtown Orlando, 310 offers a scrumptious brunch menu, as well as $15 bottomless mimosas, starting promptly at 10 AM every Sunday.
Laid back, sporty, comfortable.
A great place to watch the game and get your drink on, The Porch in Winter Park brings a sports bar vibe to the age-old tradition of the brunch buffet. Featuring decadent items such as beignets and chicken and waffles, this is definitely the spot if you're looking to indulge, and perhaps even get a little rowdy; the bottomless mimosa bar can definitely help you do that, and for only $15.95.
Chela Tequila & Tacos
Casual, downtown vibes with a dash of hot sauce.
If you like your brunch with a bit of a kick, this central-downtown spot is for you. The buffet is loaded with all of your brunch faves from 11 am to 5 pm, and, of course, there is no bottom to the mimosas. So, feel free to wear jeans (hopefully, your stretchiest pair), but consider spicing things up with a saucy top or pair of heels; and when you're nice and full and feeling bubbly, all the best bars in downtown are just a short walk away.
Trendy, eclectic, adventurous.
For the foodies out there, this would be my choice. The offerings, both a la carte and on the buffet, are a great variety of choices, and prepared in the highest quality. The decor and vibe are artsy and eclectic, yet still laid back and unpretentious, which is appropriate considering its Orlando location; right off of the Mills50 district, on Virginia Dr. This is, again, a great place to indulge, and yes, I would suggest making a B-Line for the crab legs.
White Wolf Cafe
Old school, folksy, small town vibes.
Located in the trendy, yet still "old Florida"-esque Ivanhoe Village, White Wolf Cafe has been a local favorite since the early nineties. It looks the way your grandma might decorate a diner; Tiffany style chandeliers, portraits of classic Hollywood movie stars, a huge wooden bar, and it feels like home. Not to mention, the brunch menu is pretty straightforward, and the Bloody Marys are to die for. This is a place to brunch if you like not feeling judged for wearing sweats in the afternoon.
It just goes to show, that no matter who you are, Orlando has a place for you to get your brunch on. That being said, hurry up and call to see if anything is still available this Sunday, and don't forget to book your pre-brunch blowout by clicking below! Happy brunching, Orlando!
