The first time I dined at Bulla, with a steady stream of tapas arriving at the table to be shared amongst new friends, I was hooked. It’s since become one of my go-to destinations for everything from weeknight book club meetings to hours-long girls’ brunches.
There’s no wrong time to visit, but brunch hours come with definite perks. Served Saturdays and Sundays from 11am-4pm, brunch can include bottomless mimosas and an extensive three-course prix fixe menu option. Or you can order a la carte.

Maxine's On Shine
A local favorite hiding in plain sight in a residential neighborhood surrounded by the Thornton Park District, Colonialtown and The Milk District, Maxine’s on Shine is no secret among Orlandoans. Especially those who love to brunch. Yet its popularity doesn’t take away from the eatery’s signature charm, including the funky vibe, fantastic menu and retro details.
The weekend Rejuicination Brunch offers a welcome reprieve from the stresses of the workweek, with live music, tons of outdoor dining space, an assortment of hearty dishes, and all of your favorite brunch libations including sangria, mimosas, and the biggest Bloody Marys in town.

Avid brunch-goers are no strangers to Park Avenue in Winter Park; it’s one of Orlando’s go-to spots for brunch or a Sunday funday. An abundance of brunch choices also makes it all too easy to miss hidden gems like The Parkview. This cozy, inviting wine bar and restaurant is literally full of rows of floor-to-ceiling wine bottles.
Served every Saturday and Sunday from noon-4pm, brunch offers something out of the norm with photo-worthy mimosa flights and creative chef specials.
Brunch hours: Saturday and Sunday from noon-4pm
Boca Winter Park
Brunch along Park Avenue in Winter Park is an Orlando rite of passage. We love Boca for its marvelous corner location and the way it perfectly blends an approachable and sophisticated atmosphere. The Boca Cubano sandwich is a unique twist of this Florida favorite and the Brie and Apple Flatbread is flavorful and sweet.
But if you really want the ultimate date with brunch in Orlando, then go for the “Staff Meal” which is based on whatever is the freshest locally available ingredients on the day of your visit.

Reel Fish captures the spirit and authenticity of fish camps around Florida to deliver fresh, seasonal fish, with an emphasis on sustainably sourced varieties from the Southern waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. If you want to feel like you're in Florida and savor a sumptuous seafood brunch, there is no better choice. And, if you or your partner is not that into seafood, the Fried Chicken & Waffles will surely satisfy.

Mia's Italian Kitchen
What to do when you’re craving an Italian holiday but can’t spring for a pricey plane ticket? Orlando isn’t Italy, but it does have a few notable places where you can play pretend for the day. Situated on International Drive and sister restaurant to Café Tu Tu Tango, Mia’s Italian Kitchen celebrates Italian fare with some awesome dining deals to boot.
We're partial to the weekend bottomless brunch where you can order as many Italian bites as you desire. Add on the bottomless mimosa bar and you’ve got a filling, affordable brunch that will temporarily transport you to Italy.
Brunch hours: Saturdays and Sundays from 11am-3pm
Bottomless deals: Bottomless mimosas and eats
Must-try dish: Brunch pizza
Wine Bar George
Step into Wine Bar George and you’ll totally forget you’re at Disney Springs. This stylish wine bar and eatery, owned and operated by Master Sommelier George Miliotes, serves up a delectable menu to pair with selections from the top-notch wine list any day of the week. But visit on the weekend to indulge in the Wine Country Brunch.
While I’d normally advise ordering a glass of wine, nothing pairs better with brunch than the wine bar’s lineup of signature frozen concoctions. From frosé and the pineapple Dole Whip Frozcato Mimosa to the newer Friezling made with Riesling, vodka and Dole Whip Lime, you can’t go wrong.
Brunch hours: Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30am – 2pm
Bottomless deals: Nope, but you don't want to miss the Frozcato Mimosa!
Must-try dish: Burrata, French Toast
Terralina Crafted Italian
There are plenty of places for brunch at Disney Springs. What we love about Terralina Crafted Italian is that it is a hidden gem. It is tucked along the water as you head from The Landing section of Disney Springs to The Marketplace. Quite honestly, it is easy to overlook. But, you'd be remiss to skip out on this one. With modern Italian charm and a romantic atmosphere, there's lots to love at Terralina Crafted Italian.
Offerings on the brunch menu include a Breakfast Pizza complete with sausage, peppers, mozzarella and scrambled eggs and an Omelet filled with asparagus, sun-dried tomato, fresh mozzarella, and prosciutto accompanied with fresh fruit. The Bloody Mary with spiced mozzarella, pepperoni, pickled green tomato, olives is unique and delicious. And the exotic Mimosa Flight featuring cranberry, orange, strawberry hibiscus and grapefruit rosemary is Instagram-worthy.
Brunch hours: Sundays 12pm – 3pm
Bottomless deals: No, but the Mimosa Flight is a must!
Must-try dish: Bread Pudding French Toast

When it comes to convincing you to get to Domu for weekend brunch ASAP, I’ve got one word for you: boba-mosa. And if that hasn’t quite piqued your interest, consider visiting for the top-notch ramen (the hype is deserved).
The amazingly friendly and helpful service, the cocktail and “liquid brunch” lineup, special brunch offerings, and the fun playlist, unite to craft the hip and upbeat atmosphere. Brunch at Domu is your chance to indulge in the dinner menu without the crazy wait typical of the evening hours.
Brunch hours: Saturday-Sunday from 11am-2:30pm
Bottomless deals: No, but you've got to try a boba-mosa
Must-try dish: Benedict Bao
The Glass Knife
Tempting photos of decadent cakes and handcrafted doughnuts may lure you through The Glass Knife’s doors, but the restaurant’s more savory side is equally delicious, especially during brunch. Served on Saturdays and Sundays from 8am-4pm, brunch proves that the restaurant packs more than just a sugar-filled punch.
I wouldn’t frown upon visiting for a meal comprised entirely of indulgent cakes, small-batch buttermilk brioche doughnuts, pastries and other assorted baked goods. But do so and you’ll sorely miss out on the non-dessert creations, like an indulgent avocado toast with a touch of lemon, and Belgian waffles topped with vanilla whip and fresh strawberries.
Brunch hours: Saturdays and Sundays from 8am-4pm
Bottomless deals: No, but mimosas come in five flavors
Must-try dish: Cheddar Biscuit Sandwich
The Ravenous Pig
A staple of Winter Park's food scene, The Ravenous Pig, is one of the area's first gastropubs. And while it's one of our favorite spots for date night (and we're seriously obsessed with the beer garden) the weekend brunch is quite something.
Served from 11am to 3pm, the spread includes classics like French Toast and Chicken and Waffles with seasonal revisions that make each visit a fresh experience. In fact, the menu changes frequently, with only a few staples (like Chicken & Waffles) reappearing.
Brunch hours: Saturdays and Sundays from 11am-3pm
Bottomless deals: No, but try specialty brunch cocktails or the brunch punch
Must-try dish: Chicken & Waffles
Canvas Restaurant & Market
Make the 30-minute drive to Lake Nona from Orlando and you’ll land at Canvas Restaurant & Market, a bustling New American restaurant well-poised to become a brunch favorite.
The peaceful waterfront setting, outdoor herb garden, and indoor market draw you in while the globally-inspired menu and creative cocktails invite you to stay. The brunch menu is comprised of savory, sweet and spicy, and balanced dishes. It’s well worth leaving the Orlando bubble to taste the expert dishes for yourself.
Brunch hours: Saturday-Sunday from 10am-3pm
Bottomless deals: Mimosa bottle service
Must-try dish: Canvas Benedict
When you want brunch to be a party then Bacon Bitch is the vibe! It's hard to think of any other restaurant for brunch in Orlando that delivers the fun atmosphere of Bacon Bitch. There's humor, empowerment, and charisma to go right along with the delicious food and brunch cocktails.
Located right next to UCF off of University Boulevard, naturally, the atmosphere is young and fun. We were invited to give their brunch a try, and while our meal was complimentary, it is still easy to see how perfect this place is for a brunch party. For birthdays, a celebration with friends, or to cheer on the UCF Knights to victory, Bacon Bitch is a match.
And, if you have a little too much fun by enjoying more than your share of mimosas or crazy brunch cocktails, then you'll be set right with their awesome coffee selection. The iced Cafe con Leche will pick you right back up.
Brunch hours: Every day until 6pm!
Bottomless deals: No, but there are crazy brunch cocktails that'll blow your mind
Must-try dish: Boujee Sandwich or the Chicken & Waffles – definitely get a side of Crispy Cheesy Hashbrowns or Fluffly Silver Dollar Pancakes
Disney Springs might not be the first place that comes to mind when you start thinking about places to enjoy brunch in Orlando. While Downtown Orlando and all of our blossoming Main Street districts offer scores of fabulous eateries for a late morning feast, you might not want to overlook Disney’s dining and entertainment hub, in particular, Raglan Road.
Featuring a Full Irish Breakfast, as well as dozens of other brunch specialties made with an Irish twist, this brunch is a stellar way to explore hearty Irish cuisine in a setting that’s not nearly as kitschy as you might imagine. The Rollicking Raglan Brunch fun really takes off at 11am, when the pub's talented Irish dancers and live musicians take the stage.
Brunch hours: Saturdays and Sundays from 9am-3pm
Bottomless deals: No, but definitely order a Strawberry Fields Mimosa or an Irish Coffee
Must-try dish: French Toast, Full Irish Breakfast or the Pork Hash Tagged (with a Baileys shake to drink!)
Dolce Thornton Park
Brunch hours: ALL DAY, every day!
Bottomless deals: $15 bottomless mimosas all day, every day
Must-try dish: The Healthy Bowl or the Crepes
No matter when your craving for a delicious brunch kicks in, you'll be all set at Dolce Thornton Park. And since they have some incredible desserts, it's totally okay for you two to dive in and count their dessert as brunch food too. One look at Dolce's menu and you're sure to be impressed.
Soak up the Thornton Park lifestyle on their lovely outdoor patio. The bar inside is comfortable and inviting, as cheeky modern decor makes for a fun date night vibe.
Soco Thornton Park
Known for its elevated southern fare and perfect downtown locale, Soco Thornton Park had us jumping for joy when it first extended its very popular Sunday brunch to Saturday. Guests can enjoy everything from homemade pop tarts and Southern style eggs Benedict to Southern fried chicken and French toast. Additionally, you can add bottomless mimosas for only $18 (with the purchase of an entree).
Brunch hours: Saturday-Sunday from 10:30am-3pm
Bottomless deals: $18 bottomless mimosas
Must-try dish: Chicken-N-French Toast
Hamilton's Kitchen at The Alfond Inn
I was a fan before I even sat down and picked up the menu at The Alfond Inn’s Hamilton’s Kitchen. Brunch here is everything any brunch fan could hope for and more. I’m talking chicken and waffles, French toast, savory salads, and sandwiches plus loads of crafty egg concoctions.
The French pastry basket is a nice addon for $14 and is full of fresh made pastries. The menu is a perfect balance of healthful options and indulgent ones too.
Pull up a seat on the outdoor terrace. Early in the morning, it is peaceful and quiet. Then live music is offered on the weekends. This must-visit brunch is just off Park Ave in Winter Park. Be sure to take some time to stroll through the hotel lobby and enjoy the incredible art collection.
Brunch hours: Saturdays from 8am-2pm and Sundays from 8am-3pm
Bottomless deals: No bottomless deals, but the brunch drinks are top-notch
Must-try dish: Shrimp Toast, Brunch Burger
