Breakfast near Orlando Airport

Hey everyone-

Against my better judgment, I am going to Disney with my family next week. I need a nice-ish breakfast place near the Orlando airport. It has to be kid friendly but tasty. Healthy is always a plus. Right now, I am looking for anything other than waffle house (as much as I love some of those sweet cream waffles, my sister whose birthday it is would not approve).

thanks in advance,

  1. there's a cracker barrel near the airport, which is always yummy, but not exactly the healthiest! i think that would work for kids too.

    1. How close to the airport do you need to be?

      Great breakfast place about 15 minutes west — on Sand Lake, just west of the I-4 exit. It's called First Watch. From there you'd take I-4 and then the BeachLine and be at the airport with no problems or stop-and-go traffic.

        I am familar with first watch but I am not a fan. We will have rental cars so we are not averse to driving other places. Thanks for the info!

      2. If you're willing to drive, Mimi's Cafe by the Mall at Millenia does a great breakfast with a variety of healthy options along with traditional breakfast fare. There is also Fifi's Patisserie in Thornton Park, near downtown (pricier).

            Fifi's is a chic place with excellent brunch.

        2. You are pretty much locked in to the chain resys in the north MCO area. Cracker Barrel, Denny's, and those with drive thru's or one of the hotel resys.
          There is a local diner type place on Hoffner called Conway Cafe.
          Otherwise you are driving at least 15 minutes away from MCO for anything more interesting.
