Weekend Brunch in Orlando for 10-12 people

Sharkbait Sep 15, 2012 04:49 PM

A group of us will be in town for an event in November, and I'm searching hard for a nice brunch place near to the Universal Studios Entrance/Doubletree Hotel.

-Ideally, I'd love to be able to make a reservation
-Can be a short car ride away
-Alcohol is a must

I've searched these boards for Orlando brunch, but haven't see anything come up that looks interesting. Any thoughts?

Thanks so much!

    I've been recommending the brand-new Cask & Larder to everyone, even though I haven't been there yet myself. It's in Winter Park, so it would be about a half-hour drive from Universal, but it looks incredible, and they do have a Sunday brunch with alcohol, and they take reservations.

    It's probably the hottest restaurant in Orlando right now since they literally just opened on September 5th, but you should be able to book November reservations online.

      Thanks - I made a reservation there for dinner instead! Looks interesting! But, I'm still looking for a traditional-type brunch for this crowd. Some aren't the most adventurous, so I'm trying to please a few different palates at once.

        I looked around and while there are several near you most do not serve alcohol.

        I've been to Crave for Lunch not Brunch and it's decent. It may be what you are looking for for brunch and they serve Alcohol. It's only a Sunday option but check it out.

          The Boheme at the Grand Bohemian Hotel in downtown Orlando serves a delicious, decadent Sunday brunch, complete with alcohol AND live jazz. It isn't cheap, but it sure is an awesome time.
