Barnie’s Unveils New Breakfast, Lunch and Brunch Fare

Orlando’s hometown-headquartered national coffee brand is reinvigorating and reengineering its farm-to-table menu at its beloved CoffeeKitchen in Winter Park. Putting dinner service on the back burner for the moment, Barnie’s is extending its weekday hours until 5pm and featuring newly redesigned menus intended to showcase a newly refreshed line-up of breakfast, lunch and Sunday brunch offerings. Here are some pics and details garnered from a recent media tasting:

Breakfast

“Coffee is the root of all we do,” reads the bottom of Barnie’s beautiful breakfast menu. Each menu sports a date stamp to indicate the seasonality of Executive Chef Camilo Velasco’s inspired offerings. Start your day with wholesome grains and fruits like Barnie’s signature Energy Bowl or Anson Mills Oatmeal or sample the savory Shakshuka, an Israeli dish of tomato ragout and poached eggs.

Barnie’s bakery selection is also getting an update thanks to a new partnership with Orlando’s favorite artisan bakery Blue Bird Bake Shop. Try the Baker’s Basket, which sports an assortment of Blue Bird and Olde Hearth baked goods along with Amish butter and house preserves.

Lunch

Take a tour through the farmer’s market with seasonally inspired starters, shared plates, salads, specialties and sides on Barnie’s new lunch menu. Centered on locally sourced ingredients and provisions, signature dishes include the coffee-braised pulled pork sandwich, Florida ceviche and succulent lamb meatballs with goat cheese. Light and summery sides light the apple and fennel slaw and house-made pickled veggies perfectly pair with each.
