Sweet little cafe on Park Ave with outdoor seating available. Pet friendly outside. We came around 9 am on Sunday and we're seated quickly. By the time we left the line was huge. Huge portions for Brunch and the Blood Orange Mimosas really excellent. We had the Breakfast Sandwich with Cheesy Grits and Pork Shoulder Carnitas with fried egg. All... More

A friend and I decided to try The Briar Patch for our Monday brunch and it was a great choice! A bit pricey, but very yummy! The atmosphere inside is very nice, but we decided to sit in the covered, outdoor patio area. We both had blood orange mimosas and fried green tomatoes. I had the corned beef benedict with... More

Stopped in for late lunch on a Friday at 230 pm. Asked if they served breakfast and they did - all day. I had the Rasberry lemon aid which was great and my wife had the Peach Bellini - also great. I got the Northern scramble (breakfast item) and she got the pineapple pancakes which had a rum syrup. Needless... More

I had California Bennies, a light, flavor packed coating over poached to perfection soft local eggs, avocado, heirloom tomatoes and thick bacon still crispy. I switched out the English for a biscuit- you know, being down south, and was really happy I did. Yummy. We ate outside and watched the world go by with an occasional train passing sentimental whistles... More

Two words. Blueberry pancakes. You will thank me later. They are sooo good. All of the food was great and our service was even better. It was a gorgeous day and we sat outside. The line never stopped and for good reason. We will definitely be back next time we are in town.

These are seriously some of the best pancakes I've ever eaten and I love pancakes. Even the ones I make at home are often not quite as good as these pancakes! WOW

First class breakfast in lovely outdoor setting. Would particularly recommend the waffles and French toast. The French toast was the best we've ever had! Good atmosphere and pleasant service. This restaurant - and Winter Park itself - provide a welcome break from all things Disney if you are in Orlando to do the parks. Well worth a visit.

Brunch or lunch, this is one place that always meets the mark. I love taking people there after doing the Winter Park Scenic Boat Tour. The food is consistently very good and something for everyone. Good portions, good service and lively interesting place to people-watch! You can sit inside or out and it's dog friendly :-)

Thank WinterParkCyndi
