Market on South
2603 E. South St., 407-613-5968
This restaurant, bakery and bar combo offers a plant-based dining experience. But just because there isn’t any meat on the menu, don’t think that means you won’t find be able to find a hearty meal. Veggie-lovers and carnivores alike love the Georgia peach sloppy joe and the pulled Carolina BBQ jackfruit sandwich. And because everything is vegan, you don’t have to feel guilty when you complete your order with some crispy Brussels sprouts and a giant cranberry-lemon curd donut.

At Slate, a tidy little cocktail menu is surprisingly refreshing, especially the Morning Aperitivo: Aperol, lemonade, Bittermen's Boston Bittahs and bubbles. The menu is to die for as well, making the drive down to Dr. Phillips more than worth it.

The Osprey Tavern
4899 New Broad St., 407-960-7700
Dining here is a sensuous experience. The farmer’s board to start, and the sausage burger with avocado, fried eggs and roasties on an English muffin are both best menu picks. Instead of a class mimosa, try a glass of the brunch punch.

Chef Eddie’s
595 W. Church St., 407-826-1731
Judged on food alone, Eddie James could very well be serving the finest comfort food in town. We made quick work of the complimentary plate of jalapeño crackling muffins (served with pineapple honey butter). The speciality is chicken and waffles, so you must try one of the sweet yet savory dishes. There’s red velvet, butter pecan, banana walnut and apple cinnamon.

Outpost Neighborhood Kitchen
2603 Edgewater Dr., 407-930-6282
The sun is shining at College Park's vintage-tinged Outpost when it’s brunchtime. Settle in with a mimosa (… or three) while a live band keeps the mood up in the clouds. Whether you’re biting the hair of the dog or just looking to fend off the hunger, you won’t want to skip out on the buffalo shrimp Benedict.

Pharmacy
8060 Via Dellagio Way, 407-985-2972
The libation slingers at Pharmacy just recently got their doctorate in brunch and our hunger couldn’t be more pleased. Expect to see the usual suspects like omelets, fried chicken and waffles and maple sticky buns on this brunch menu, but while you’re here, you’ll have no choice but to order one of their carefully crafted cocktails, like the Bloody Michelada – a whiskey and Bloody Mary concoction.

Two Chefs Seafood Oyster Bar
743 N. Magnolia Ave., 407-270-4740
Try not to judge this resto by its decor. Judge it by its fried chicken instead. Did the crackling skin elicit hearty grunts of approval? Did the flesh induce in us a lubricious haze? Were our digits licked clean of crunchy, seasoned residue? Yes, yes and oh hell yes.

Christo’s Cafe
1815 Edgewater Drive, 407-425-8136
There’s no better place to have a pre-noon meal. That sentiment has less to do with the food than with the utterly calming environs, though a recent breakfast on a cool morn amid a light drizzle was made all the more memorable by the lamb and feta-filled Greek omelet, a stack of silver dollar pancakes, deep-fried French toast with bananas and bottomless cups of coffee.
