Step away from your desk. I repeat, step away from your desk. It’s time to get outside and enjoy the wonderful world of lunch! Bring back the mid-day break and explore a new spot for your afternoon meal. While there’s no such thing as a free lunch, these are certainly worth paying for in Downtown Orlando.
Rusty Spoon: As a two-time James Beard Award Nominee, Kathleen Blake is queen of downtown cuisine. Her Lake Meadow “Red Devil” Stuffed Eggs are killer, while her half pound grass fed beef burger stuffed with bacon and Gruyere is sure to put you in the perfect food coma. Lunch or dinner now is the time to visit Rusty Spoon.
Cuban American Cafe: Located inside The Fairwinds Corporate Tower, this authentic Cuban spot has been serving up the best Cuban coffee and sandwiches for 12 years! Pop in for a taste and get out for less than 10 bucks.
Le Gourmet Break: The family that owns this spot moved from France a few short years ago to open a restaurant in Orlando. We’re now the lucky recipients of their pastries made on site and baked fresh daily. They also serve breakfast all day which means you must try their Omelet Croissant. It’s buttery, flaky and everything you’d hope for in a breakfast-fusion sandwich.
DoveCote: Open morning, noon and night their burger and croque monsieur alone are worth a trip out of the office. Bonus points for their stylish space and tasty wine list.
