This place is a locals' joint and is as close to a diner as you're likely to get in Orlando. Breakfast is particularly tasty, but so are most of their comfort food selections.

Carol's is a place that is far from fancy, but if you want a place with good food served by nice people, this is it. Decor is an eclectic mix of knick-knacks and mismatched coffee mugs, like you would get in your aunt's kitchen. There...More

Really good food, this place is always busy. the only reason I give 4 stars and not 5 is because of parking. there is very few spots.. even if you try near by businesses.

I recently, meaning today, ordered to-go via phone from this restaurant because I work in the area and was getting tired of the same old places. When I arrived, I found a park instantly and went inside to the small, yet cozy place. Many patrons...More
