Unique Orlando Place Close To Turnpike?

Will be passing by Orlando on Turnpike. Looking for a recommendation for a mom and pop place known for something unique. My first choice would be a breakfast place, but lunch will also work. The closer to the Turnpike the better.

  1. If you get off at the Winter Garden exit instead of an Orlando exit you have a few lunch choices. Yellow Dog Eats is a cute little sandwich, salad and barbecue shop in a historic building in Gotha. JR's Attic is a cute little choice on Winter Garden's quaint Plant Street. You can also try 4 Rivers Smokehouse, a great barbecue place in Winter Garden. There's not much near the 17-92 exit. Maybe Padrino's for sorta upscale Cuban, or Sushi House for sushi in a chic space.
