What can make you say "OK" when they say there is a 4 hour wait for pancakes? The Spanish Sugar Mill is worth it! In all honesty, we were there once and got seated right away and 2 times there was a 2 hour wait and the 4 hour wait ended up being 3 hours. But there is so much... More

The Old Spanish Sugar Mill is truly a unique experience. Located in DeLeon Springs, you pay a fee ($6.00 per car load up to 8 people) to enter the park. It in and of itself is a gorgeous place to spend the day. The sugar mill has been converted to a fun restaurant. There is a griddle in the middle... More

This is such a fun place. You make your pancakes, eggs, suasage (precooked) on the griddle/table. The batter is the best. There are all kinds of things to put into pancakes from pecans to peanut butter. And you eat as many as you want! The staff is super friendly. there is a very small gift shop but lots of good...

There's something about places that allow you to cook your own food that have always captivated me and the Old Spanish Sugar Mill is definitely one that is not to be missed. I've been visiting DeLeon Springs since I was a child and this restaurant has withstood the test of time as it has remained exactly the same for decades,... More

This is a unique experience. You make your own pancakes. Order white or wheat batter. They usually bring out both anyway. You can order add ons like blue berries, bananas. There is a griddle in the middle of each table and you cook your own. Kids usually enjoy it most. But you get all you can eat and get them... More

While we were visiting Orlando during Spring Break, we drove to De Leon Springs Park to the Sugar Mill restaurant. We've heard so many great reviews over the years and read about the restaurant in Southern Living magazine. We have an annual pass to the Florida State parks so our admission to the park was free. The park ranger said... More

Whenever I have friends in town they always want to go here. It's fun to make your own pancakes and they have all kinds of stuff to add to the batter. The French toast is good too. The look on my cousin's face was priceless when they handed him two eggs (in their shells!) I guess he didn't get the... More

You cook your own food and even set your own plate, silverware and all. You even pour your own drink. The waitress treats you like a tool and on top of all this you are automatically added an 18% gratuity. Nevermind the fact that is inside a park that you have to pay 6$ just to walk in the place....

I'm writing this review way after the fact. We were here last summer and I was a return customer but my son and fiance haven't been there. This place is the best for making your own breakfast without having to clean up after yourself. The different pancake batters are wonderful and the veggie sausage too is very tasty. I prefer...
