Whoever created the whole concept of “Brunch” is one of those brilliant minds in the world! They thought to themselves – I want breakfast AND lunch, all at the same time! And ta-da… BRUNCH was born! It’s especially loved by people like us that enjoy breakfast food but sometimes crave an addition of lunch items in the mix. Well, Disney recently jumped on board with the whole brunch trend, opening more and more brunch-specific venues throughout their resorts and Disney Springs. There are several places you can get a good mix of breakfast and lunch selections such as Cape May Café and Tusker House, for example, but if you’re looking for a designated brunch lineup – here are six places you’ll want to check out for the beloved brunch.
6 – STK Orlando
This one is unexpected, in our opinion. You might not think of a high-end steakhouse being a brunch hot spot – but here we are at Disney Springs’ STK Orlando! Brunch is severed Saturdays and Sundays between 11:00 am – 3:00 pm. The brunch menu is slightly limited, but the options are definitely high-end in taste and in price. You’ll enjoy entrées such as the Cinnamon French Toast, Smoked Pork Belly Benedict, and even Lobster with eggs, bacon, and potato fries. On top of the food (and cocktails), the atmosphere is still a trendy place to be during the brunch hours with a DJ keeping the vibe moving.
5 – Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant
May your brunch be filled with good food and fantastic entertainment! You can’t go wrong with “The Rollicking Raglan Brunch” held at Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant in Disney Springs on Saturdays and Sundays between 10 am – 3 pm. The impressive brunch menu has a vast array of items to choose from, many with a Celtic flare like a Full Irish, Shepard’s to Die for Pie, Fish & Chips, and Citrus Salmon Salad. On the flip side, you can stick with American favorites like a burger your way and salmon. Just try to make your brunch reservation for right around 12:00 pm as that’s when the entertainment hits the stage with exciting Irish dancing and music.
4 – Olivia’s Café
Anyone that knows us knows that Olivia’s Café at Disney’s Old Key West Resort is one of our absolute favorite resort restaurants. It’s the perfect quiet restaurant and brunch here is the icing on the cake! Saturday and Sunday brunch is available from 7:30 am – 2:00 pm. Taste the Florida Keys with picks like banana bread French toast, crab cakes eggs benedict, and Olivia’s Breakfast. Plus, enjoy the usual favorites like pancakes, bacon, and salad. And finally, truly feel like you’re at the beach with a Parrot Punch. Christmas and New Year’s Brunches are also available with a holiday twist! No set buffet price here. Price varies depending on what you select from the brunch menu.
3 – Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’
Wake up! It’s time to delight in “The Rise ‘n Shine Brunch” at Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ located at Disney Springs. Every Saturday and Sunday between 9 am – 12:55 pm, foodies are welcome to devour their share of some yummy southern-style brunch selections. The brunch menu includes what Chef Art calls “feel-good” food such as Church Lady Deviled Eggs, house-made doughnuts, French toast, fried chicken & Doughnuts, grits, bacon, country ham, and even rib hash. Plus, the full lunch menu is available at 11 am. Wash down all this good stuff with “Rise ‘n Shine” Cocktails like Proud Mary, Princess Mimosa, and Sweet Tea Shine. This brunch is not a buffet style, so prices vary depending on which apps, entrees, sides, desserts, and beverages you decide to choose.
2 – House of Blues Restaurant & Bar
Need a spiritual boost while dining on some soul-filled food? Look no further than House of Blues in Disney Springs for the well-known brunch. Brunch is served every Sunday from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm but the food isn’t the only reason to select this brunch option. Each Sunday, performers take the stage to perform brass band music from 12:00-4:00 pm, so if you want the entertainment, book a later reservation. The food itself is wonderfully hearty with southern favorites like chicken ‘n’ donuts, Tennessee Toast, eggs, biscuits and gravy, and even Pig Grits & Shrimp!
1 – Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante
What’s better than a Sunday brunch? A Sunday brunch with Italian food! Enjoy a luxurious brunch experience called “Buon Giorno Brunch” on Sundays from 11:30 am – 3:30 pm. This is a great way to taste many of the savory dishes coming out of the kitchen, a Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante in Disney Springs. Crunch toast, Spaghetti Carbonara Americana, Smocked Salmon Board… so much goodness to fill your stomachs with. With the right price, the right atmosphere, and right food – Maria and Enzo’s is a high-ranking brunch pick on our list!
