Met my sister & niece in Orlando today & we ate breakfast at Keke’s Breakfast Cafe in Winter Park.  This place is always packed.  My sister ordered a Florida Belgium Waffle, which had strawberries, bananas and blueberries plus enough whipped cream to qualify it as a dessert.

She wolfed the entire thing down and was happy as could be about it.  My niece & I went the less sweet route.  She had a make your own veggie omelet and I went for a scrambler with spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes and cheese.

It was all really good.  This has been our go-to place for breakfast when we meet up in Orlando.   Total bill was $35.

We were headed to the Fringe Festival in Orlando and stopped at Dixie Belles Cafe for breakfast.  It was a cute, clean little restaurant with friendly servers.  Loren got some scrambled eggs, bacon, ham steak & pancakes while I went for some over easy eggs, hashbrowns & a biscuit.

The ham actually came with my breakfast combo, but I didn’t think I really wanted any meat with my breakfast so I put it on Loren’s plate.  Then I tasted it and ended up eating half of it anyway.  The ham wasn’t overly salty or sweet, it was just tasty.  The pancakes were light & fluffy, so was the biscuit.  Eggs were cooked fine and the hashbrowns were crispy on the outside & soft in the middle.  Overall, just a pretty good and inexpensive breakfast.  Total bill was $14.50.

  • We were going to a movie this morning & decided to get breakfast beforehand, completely forgetting that it was Mother’s Day.  We went by three different restaurants with lines out the door before we finally got a table at Consciousness Blossoms.  They were pretty busy too, but at least we were able to get some breakfast and get to our movie on time.

    Loren went for an omelette and pancakes & I got a breakfast croissant with home fries.

    Fresh & tasty all around.  The eggs here are just so light & fluffy.  Loren enjoyed his veggie omelette and the pancakes had a nice texture and consistency as well.  They even came around and gave all the moms a sample of one of their smoothies and a chocolate covered cookie.  Total bill with some juice was $20.

    Sometimes the simplest dishes can be the tastiest.  We went to Nana’s Restaurant in Tarpon Springs for brunch and Loren was just as happy as could be with his BLT sandwich and soup.

    The sandwich just made him happy.  Crispy bacon, lightly toasted bread, mayo, crunchy lettuce and tomato.  So simple, yet so tasty.  Plus he really likes their black bean soup too.  I went for a Country Scramble.

    This was one heavy dish.  Eggs, potatoes, cheese, sausage gravy, biscuit and it also came with bacon that I got on the side.  There was way too much of it for me to finish.  It was good, but one note texture-wise.  Total bill with a drink was $21.

    Quick Meal


    We were headed to a matinee show at Ruth Eckerd Hall and figured we could get a quick to bite to eat at Athens Restaurant in Safety Harbor before the show.  Loren went for a Greek salad and I opted for breakfast.

    He said his salad was ok (especially after adding my bacon) and I liked the French toast.  I asked for cheese in my eggs and would have liked for it to have been mixed in instead of just on top, but otherwise they were ok.  For $15, it was a quick, decent meal.
