50+ Orlando Area Black-Owned Restaurants and Shops to Support

The mission of our publication has always been to inspire couples to spend quality time together by exploring the many amazing things our city has to offer. But we’re equally dedicated to supporting and uplifting our local Orlando community as a whole. Now more than ever, it’s important for the Orlando community to support our local Black-owned restaurants and businesses. We have compiled a comprehensive list of eateries categorized by what area of Orlando you’re in, as well as Black-owned businesses you can shop from.

We also want to shout out the lists compiled by Orlando Weekly, Orlando Takeout, Sanford365, I Love Sanford, and our amazing readers for help sourcing all of the places included. This map by Orlando Takeout is also super handy to see what Orlando area Black-owned restaurants are around your area when hunger strikes. Additionally, our friends at Pulptown created an exhaustive list of Black-owned businesses, restaurants, and creatives.
