Lovely relaxed atmosphere, ideal for catching up with friends. Although I did not see baby changing facilities in the ladies toilets. Breakfast and lunch menus are served all day long. Great to enjoy a coffee, cake and a catch up with friends Indoor and outdoor/street seating available. No Wifi :(

Hit or miss. I've been here a few times and the last time confirmed it for me. The atmosphere is great. It's special in that it's a cute place, quaint area and the food quality is decent; servers are friendly. The first time I came here I ordered breakfast which was really good but we waited forever because the line... More

As always, The Briar Patch did not disappointed on my annual visit. Loved some of the new menu items (avocado toast with smoked salmon was excellent). The turkey sandwich special was quite good, and, the restaurant's chicken salad (a classic) did not disappointed. The service was excellent, and, as usual, we left with pieces of their (in)famously delicious, three-tiered chocolate... More

Wonderful restaurant off Park Avenue in Winter Park. Sit outside or in and receive polite and efficient service along with great food. Everything is fresh, tasty and attractively served. Check out their cakes, breads and desserts!

Every time I'm near Winter Park I just have to make sure to visit Briar Patch. It's such a lovely little place- definitely has the best brunch in town. This time around we had the Briarpatch eggs Benedict, the pancakes, and the fried green tomatoes. The fried green tomatoes and pancakes are simply not to be missed. The mimosas aren't... More

Based on Trip Advisor reviews I chose the Briar Patch for breakfast and sat indoors to escape the heat. The service was attentive but not too much so and the pan cakes really were amazing. A good range of choices on the menu and a great ambiance.

Pancake barter is unique and the Salmon Benedict was second to none. Would highly recommend for breakfast or brunch.

A group of friends went in for a late lunch and some historically great food. We started our meal by sharing a serving of deliciously moist zucchini sandwiches for an appetizer. They were covered with delicious whipped cream cheese which was spread generously between the slices of zucchini bread. We had one regular menu order which was a chicken salad... More
