Recommendation for Lunch Near Orlando Airport

We have a Sunday 3 p.m. flight leaving from Orlando Airport. I'd like to have a nice, relaxing lunch before flying. We'd prefer nothing ethnic, just good relatively simple food - with emphasis on good (great?) in a quiet setting. Any thoughts?

  1. I can't think of anything like that near the airport. It's pretty much Chain Hell in that area. There's a Cracker Barrel on Semoran, but I don't know if that's quiet enough.

    You could catch an earlier brunch at Mimi's Cafe or the Village Tavern (not the same as Village Inn), both by the Mall at Millenia. Both have excellent food and relaxed atmosphere.

      If it's open for lunch, there's a surprisingly good restaurant called Hemisphere inside the Hyatt that's in the airport. Also, a nearby hotel steakhouse called Porterhouse has a shuttle bus for airport passengers, and the food is good--but I'm not sure if it's open for lunch. http://www.porterhouseorlandosteakhou...
      I haven't been there yet, but I"m hearing good things about Las Brasas, or Los Brases, which is near the airport, I think on South Orange Ave. I believe it's a mid-price Latin (maybe Peruvian?) chicken place.
