2. The Crazy Coconut

5406 Hansel Ave. Orlando, FL 32809

Don't let the name change scare you (Previously FK Your Diet), this spot is still serving up the same great food. The owner, who was a foster kid himself, learned to cook from his various chefs (aka foster moms), and now donates 5% of the restaurant’s proceeds to children in the foster system. Try out their corned beef hash, country fried steak, quiche or breakfast burrito. With large portion sizes, you definitely won’t leave hungry.

3. Shakers American Café

1308 Edgewater Dr. Orlando, FL 32804

Located in College Park, Shakers has been a staple in the community for 30 years. Enjoy made-to-order breakfast all day seven days a week. The portions are generous and the atmosphere is quaint, so it’s no wonder they’ve won countless local foodie awards. 

4. White Wolf Cafe

1829 N Orange Ave. Orlando, FL 32804

Located in the Ivanhoe Village neighborhood of Orlando, White Wolf’s cozy atmosphere is a great spot for a breakfast date. Try out the eggs benedict, french toast or a variety of omelets, pancakes and breakfast sandwiches. You’re also going to want to order a jumbo cinnamon bun for the table. Trust me! They also have a full bar, so make sure to pair your breakfast with a traditional mimosa or beermosa if you'd rather be in brunch mode.

8. Bagel King

1455 Semoran N Cir. #113, Casselberry, FL 32707 (Locations in Winter Park & Lake Mary as well)

Home of the kettle cooked bagel, Bagel King is one of my favorite delicious and affordable breakfast spots in town. A Jewish style restaurant and bakery, Bagel King has more than just bagels; they’ve got challah french toast, omelets and biscuits and gravy to name a few. Help yourself to bottomless self-serve coffee as well! 

Alternatively, Jeff's Bagel Run is a big favorite and is supposed to be expanding in a major way soon!
