What better way to wind down and enjoy the weekend than a leisurely brunch buffet? It can be hard to carve out time for dates during the hectic work week, so Saturdays and Sundays offer an opportunity for relaxed together time. One of the great things about Orlando is the multitude of brunchy options. Here is a list of some of the best weekend Orlando brunch buffets where you and your date can make the most of your Sunday Funday!
Marlow’s Tavern Winter Park
Marlow’s Tavern Winter Park recently rolled out an exciting new Sunday brunch buffet. From 11am-3pm, fuel up with a chef-driven selection of breakfast classics and innovative twists on well-loved dishes, like Jack Daniel’s French toast and buttermilk fried chicken. You’ll also find farm fresh eggs and bacon, Asian mahi-mahi, sweets like cinnamon rolls and cookies, made-to-order omelets, and more. The all-you-can-eat buffet costs $24.99 per person, and you can add bottomless mimosas for $15 per person.
Chela Tequila and Tacos
Bubbles ‘N’ Brunch is offered every Sunday from 11am-5pm at this taco-focused eatery downtown. $33 gets you access to an unlimited brunch buffet, plus bottomless mimosas and sangria. You can look forward to a made-to-order station with rotating, seasonal offerings plus traditional breakfast goodies like eggs, potatoes, bacon, and pancakes. There are also hot entrees like hot honey chicken and waffles, fried cauliflower, and shrimp & chorizo grits, a selection of specialty salads, assorted pastries, and specialty desserts and fruit.
The Porch’s Sunday brunch is a hot-ticket item in Winter Park, so be sure to book a reservation. Each Sunday they host two seatings for bottomless brunch: 11am-1pm and 1:30pm-3:30pm. The all-you-can-eat buffet includes an omelet bar plus a bottomless mimosa bar for $34.95/person. If you don’t want both, you can choose just the buffet or just the mimosas. No matter which seating you attend, you’ll get to enjoy music from the live DJ who is there from 12-4pm.
California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Hotel hosts its signature Brunch at the Top every Sunday from 10am-1pm. This fine dining brunch spot may be most popular for special occasions, but it is certainly an experience you've got to have at least once. The top floor views with sweeping vistas of the Disney Parks (and one awesome view of Cinderella's Castle) are worth the visit alone.
Brunch at the Top is unique in that it is a buffet that also includes your choice of entrée. Buffet offerings include sushi, charcuterie, deviled eggs, breads, yogurt, and more. The only downfall is trying to pick an entree from the endless options. Favorites include Eggs Benedict, Grilled Hangar Steak, Carrot Cake Pancakes, Blackened Gulf Shrimp, and more. The meal ends with an assortment of desserts for the table. The cost is $80 for adults and $43 for children ages 3-11. Complimentary valet parking is included.
Ask an Orlandoan where their favorite brunch haunt is and Santiago's Bodega is likely to be an answer. Both the Altamonte Springs and Orlando locations offer epic bottomless brunches with mimosas and sangria. The Spanish-inspired tapas are great for small groups, so consider this spot for a double or triple date. Expect a lively, party-like atmosphere perfect for group dates or a girls' day out.
The Grand Bohemian Hotel’s swanky restaurant, The Boheme, offers an exceptional Sunday brunch buffet. From 10am to 2pm, feast your eyes on a display of breakfast favorites like scrambled eggs and baco, an omelet and waffle bar, antipasti and charcuterie, seafood & shellfish, a fresh crepe station, a variety of desserts, and unlimited mimosas. Plus, enjoy live jazz music throughout the meal.
Villa de Flora
The renowned Villa de Flora restaurant at the Gaylord Palms Hotel offers an eclectic brunch spread on Sunday afternoons. Six different stations house chefs offering a variety of unique culinary creations, including a seasonal Mediterranean-inspired buffet. Choose from a wide variety of breads, produce, internationally-inspired entrees, personalized pastas and omelets, and a variety of desserts. Consider going above and beyond by booking a hotel room and making spa reservations for a mini romantic staycation! The brunch buffet is available Sundays from 12-3pm and costs $40/adult.
Café Tu Tu Tango
Located in the heart of International Drive, Café Tu Tu Tango is a colorful, artsy restaurant specializing in Spanish-inspired small plates. The atmosphere is fun and lively no matter when you choose to go, but the weekend bottomless brunch is a real party. Tango's Bottomless Brunch is served Saturdays from 11am-3pm and Sundays from 10am-3pm and costs $26/person. Options include a make-your-own taco bar, waffle station, and more plus brunch dishes available from the scratch kitchen.

The Bloody Mary Bar includes three different drink bases, gourmet seasonings, cured meats, a wall of hot sauces, pickled veggies and more.
