The portion was very large so I had plenty for another morning. My husband has the crab meat omelet and it was... read more

We were in Winter Park at lunch time. We walked by this restaurant, looked at the specials and decided to stay. I ordered the chicken salad plate that includedfresh fruit and a zucchini bread sandwich. My partner ordered the ham, Brie and Apple omelet. We were so happy we ordered these choices although everything looked good. We both noticed this... More

For many years, this has ALWAYS been my "go to" restaurant when I come to WP, whether alone or with friends. It's by far my favorite restaurant in WP. I've been coming It's cute and the food is great. Getting the chocolate layer cake is a must. Homemade & to die for. Plenty to share.

I've lived here over 30 years, and The Briar Patch has been around at least that long. If you had asked me a few years ago where to go for a weekend breakfast or Sunday brunch I might not have included Briar Patch in the list. A few years ago the service wasn't that great and the food was just... More

The food here is delicious, it is quaint, the staff are locals with knowledge of what you must see while you are downtown WP! The art work is delightful too.

This restaurant is a Winter Park institution and has had excellent food for decades. Of course the location (especially if you get an outside table) is a delight. Some unusual menu offerings and some old standbys done with a twist, all done very, very well even at peak rush. The table service is generally very good and the wait staff... More

We went to Winter Park to go on the boat tour, which was wonderful. Then wanted to try brunch at the Briar Patch because of reviews I had read on here. Glad we did! I had the Belgiam Waffel with fresh fruit that was the best I have ever had. My husband had pancakes and sausage which he also loved.... More

We stopped by for lunch here last week. We thought we would like to sit outside because the sun was shining even though it was a cool day. When we stopped at the hostess stand, she told us there were no outside tables available. We mentioned that we saw 2 outside that appeared empty. We had to show her. They... More

Like the restaurant, good and fresh food. Decent service. Like the menu options. Great carrot cake and tasty coffee. Kind of noisy but acceptable.
